A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or zirconia. Our dentist will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.
Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
- To protect a tooth following root canal treatment
- To anchor and attach a dental bridge
- To cover and complete a dental implant
- To enhance the beauty of your smile
- To improve a misshapen tooth
- To strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
- To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains

To better provide for patients’ individual needs, Rosenberg Family Dentistry offers both porcelain and KATANA Zirconia dental crowns in St. John and Great Bend, Kansas. While porcelain is commonly used to match the shape and color of teeth, KATANA crowns also blend in naturally. Often, these zirconia-made crowns are also more affordable and durable. Each crown can also be completed in our lab within two weeks of your initial visit. To learn more about Dr. Joe Rosenberg’s options for dental crowns, arrange an appointment with our dentist today!
