Dental Crowns

Dental crowns, also known as “caps,” are utilized as a way to recover damaged or chipped teeth while also preserving your natural tooth. Dr. Kenneth Kowalski has performed this treatment on all ages and does so gently and carefully. We welcome you to visit Kowalski Dental Offices or call or text us at 262-781-5600 to visit with our dentist and learn whether you are a candidate for custom-made, effective dental crowns in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
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, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. 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:

  • Protection of 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
  • Strengthening a tooth that is fractured or weakened
  • Supporting a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
