Dental Crowns: What, Why & How They Restore Your Smile
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown, also known as “cap,” is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.
Dental crowns are a healthy way to fill gaps in teeth and to restore your smile if you have missing or damaged teeth.
A crown can also help you bite and chew better, which can improve not only the physical appearance of your smile but your overall health & wellness too.
Dental crowns are typically bonded to the tooth using a bio-compatible dental cement.
Why Would Your Dentist Recommend A Crown?
Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the health of your tooth.
Here at Wayne Dental Arts we use composite, porcelain, & porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to restore the smiles of our patients back to health.
Restorative dentistry with dental crowns is an extremely reliable treatment for correcting:
- chipped or cracked teeth
- missing teeth
- discolored teeth
- weakened or broken teeth
Dental crowns are recommended as a long-lasting corrective treatment for major dental problems.
It’s not unusual for dental crowns to last for 20 to 30 years.

Some of the benefits of dental crowns include:
- Replaces missing teeth
