Chris Johns, DDS will often recommend a dental crown at our Millbrae, CA dentist office to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling. Dental crowns are also often used to top off a dental implant, protect a damaged tooth, or to complete root canal therapy.

What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain, that is placed over your tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A crown is often the best way to restore the appearance and function of your tooth after it has been damaged by decay or trauma.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile.
Our Millbrae dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth from breaking after it has been weakened by decay
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a crown is placed, most patients are able to enjoy chewing without pain and can smile with confidence again!
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years - it depends on the wear and tear the dental crown is exposed to and if you take care of your crown with regular brushing and flossing. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups with Chris Johns, DDS are important!
