Crowns or “Caps” act as a strong helmet that bands the tooth together like the metal strap on a barrel.

Large Filling or Decay

Tooth has reached a point that adding more filling will weaken the remaining tooth structure.

Tooth Prepared

Decay removed, tooth shaped into a column that the Crown/Cap can slide onto.

Crown Cemented

Crown cemented onto tooth, serving as a protective 'helmet' and esthetic replica of the tooth.
