Dental Crowns

Do you have a damaged, discolored or even missing tooth? You may be surprised to learn that our dentists may have a simple solution to your smile problem: porcelain dental crowns. Call Pleasant Avenue Dentistry at 218-237-7200 for an appointment for a dental crown in Park Rapids, Minnesota, with Dr. Ben Sitz, Dr. Elise Soulliere or Dr. Jay Jorgenson.

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. Porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentists 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

  • Anchor and attach a dental bridge

  • Cover and complete a dental implant

  • Enhance the beauty of your smile

  • Improve a misshapen tooth

  • Strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak

  • Support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
