A dental crown, sometimes called a tooth cap or crown, covers the entire tooth like a cap and is permanently cemented into place. They are custom-made to blend naturally with your smile and correct any cosmetic concerns, such as the treated tooth’s color and/or shape. Dr. Benjamin Stevens places high-quality porcelain dental crowns to enhance your natural smile and support lasting dental health at his Indianapolis, IN dentist office.
Is a Dental Crown Right For You?
A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place. The crown provides strength, aesthetics, and lasting, durable function. Dental crowns are stain and decay resistant and can last for many years. Dr. Stevens, an Indianapolis, IN dentist, may recommend a dental crown for any of the following dental problems or cosmetic concerns:
- After a root canal
- Restore a tooth with a large cavity
- Repair a broken or cracked tooth
- Improve the appearance of misshaped or crooked tooth
- Cover a stained or discolored tooth
- Close gaps between teeth
- Lengthen teeth
- Other cosmetic dentistry goals
- Used as a prosthetic tooth and secured to a dental implant for a single missing tooth

Porcelain Dental Crown
Beautiful Smiles can replace a metal dental crown or broken or worn dental crowns with a new, porcelain dental crown in their Indianapolis, IN family dentist office. Replacing a dental crown is a simple procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the smile.
A few benefits of a porcelain dental crown are:
Metal-free – do not cause discoloration along the gum like conventional metal dental caps
Natural looking – a porcelain dental crown is made of layers of fine ceramic material to match natural tooth enamel
Long lasting – a porcelain dental crown is highly durable, as well as stain resistant, meaning it will last for years to come
