Crowns (or "CAPS")

crown1When a tooth has been weakened by significant decay, a root canal or fracture, a crown ("cap") may be necessary.

A crown restores a tooth to its original shape, size and strength.  W. Todd Rogers Dental uses porcelain-fused-to-metal matched to the color of your adjacent teeth to provide a natural, 'just like your normal teeth' look and feel.

Crown are accomplished in two steps:

  • At the first appointment, Dr. Rogers prepares the tooth and takes an impression that is sent to the dental laboratory. When you leave the office, you will have a temporary, tooth colored crown to protect the tooth.
  • Approximately two weeks later, your new crown is cemented with a permanent material.  With proper brushing and flossing, this beautiful new crown will last for many, many years.
