If your tooth needs its shape, size, strength, or appearance restored, Dr. Clayton M. Hansen may recommend a dental crown in American Fork, Utah. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that is cemented over your tooth, covering the entire visible portion of your tooth. Our dentist may recommend a dental crown to:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Hold a cracked tooth together
  • Restore a broken or worn down tooth
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large dental filling
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Cover irregularly shaped teeth
  • Cover badly stained teeth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Improve a tooth’s appearance

Our dentist may place a dental crown on primary (baby) teeth to:

  • Save a tooth that is too badly damaged to support a dental filling
  • Protect the teeth of a child that is at high risk for cavities
  • Protect the teeth of a child who has trouble with oral hygiene
  • Decrease the use of anesthesia on a child who is unable to cooperate during dental treatments

We invite you to contact our dental office today to learn more about dental crowns and to schedule a visit with our dentist.
