When a patient’s tooth needs its shape, size, strength, and appearance restored, Dr. Pape or Isle Smile dentists may recommend a dental crown in Key West, Florida. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that is placed over a tooth, entirely covering the visible part of the tooth. Our dentists may recommend a custom-made dental crown to:

• Keep a weak tooth from breaking
• Hold a cracked tooth together
• Restore a broken or badly worn down tooth
• Cover and support a tooth with a large dental filling
• Anchor a dental bridge
• Cover a misshaped or badly stained tooth
• Cover a dental implant
• Improve the appearance of a tooth

Our dentists may place a dental crown on primary teeth, or baby teeth, to:

• Preserve the space for adult teeth
• Save a tooth that is too badly damaged to support a dental filling
• Protect the tooth of a child that is at high risk for cavities
• Protect the tooth of a child who has a hard time keeping up with dental hygiene
• Decrease the use of general anesthesia for children that are unable to cooperate during dental treatments

We welcome you to contact Isle Smile today to learn more about dental crowns and to schedule your next visit with our dentists.
