Crowns (or dental caps) are restorations that completely enclose a natural tooth. This is done to build a damaged or imperfect tooth to an ideal size and shape. Crowns are often made of tooth-colored composite resin or porcelain for the most aesthetically-pleasing results possible. There are many reasons why Dr. Brian J. Waggle may recommend a dental crown in Zanesville, Ohio, including:

  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • To protect a tooth that has had root canal therapy
  • To restore broken, fractured, uneven, or cracked teeth
  • To enhance the beauty of a smile
  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • To hold a cracked tooth together
  • To anchor a dental bridge
  • To cover badly stained teeth
