Can You Get a Crown on a Front Tooth?
Dental crowns are excellent at restoring a damaged tooth or one that has lost its natural enamel. Dental caps are ideal for posterior teeth, but can they be installed on the front teeth? At Lake Chaparral Dental Care, we have helped many patients in Calgary, Alberta, overcome tooth damage using dental crowns. Whether you need a crown on the back or front teeth, Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma and the team will devise a treatment plan to help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.
Why You May Need a Dental Crown on the Front Teeth
Teeth rarely damage or decay predictably. Cracks, chips, and decay may occur in the front, back, or middle teeth. Whatever the case, dental crowns are versatile enough to restore your teeth anywhere in your mouth. You may need a dental crown on the front teeth for the reasons below:
- To cover up a severely stained tooth
- To complete the dental implant treatment
- To anchor a dental bridge
- To fill a cavity too large for a dental filling
- To restore a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
While dental crowns can be used to restore multiple teeth, sometimes, all you need is a single crown for a complete smile transformation. Your dentist will assess your individual needs to customize your treatment plan.
Will a Dental Crown in the Front Look Natural?
Most patients are concerned about installing a dental crown on the teeth within the smile zone. We understand this fear because you have encountered patients who reveal conspicuous metal crowns when they open their mouths.

Due to advancements in dentistry, we have materials that can be colour-matched to blend seamlessly with your natural enamel. We use porcelain crowns to restore front teeth. Porcelain can be designed to match your natural teeth. Once in place, no one will ever know your tooth has been restored! Porcelain crowns are also durable and don’t stain like your natural teeth.
