If a patient’s tooth needs its shape, size, strength, or appearance restored, Dr. Spelman and Dr. Orlando may recommend a dental crown in Hopewell, New Jersey. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that may be placed over a tooth to do the following:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Hold a cracked tooth together
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Restore a tooth that is worn down
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Cover irregularly shaped or badly discolored teeth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Improve the appearance of a tooth

Dental crowns are sometime used on children as well. A dental crown may be placed on primary teeth to:

  • Save a tooth that is too damaged too support a filling
  • Protect a child’s teeth when they have a high risk of tooth decay
  • Decrease the need to use general anesthesia on a child who is unable to cooperate fully during dental procedures
