“Capping” a tooth involves totally covering it with a metal, or ceramic crown. A cosmetic dentist Cherry Creek may use a crown to cover a flaw in the natural shape of a tooth, protect a weakened tooth, or as a support for a dental bridge.

If a front tooth has been broken off, and is in need of immediate repair for appearance sake, your cosmetic dentist Cherry Creek may be able to fit you with a temporary crown at a same day office visit. A permanent crown can be installed later.
