Dental caps, explained by our cosmetic dentist.
Dental caps and molds, much like crowns, are made from a composite material and created in a laboratory to exact specifications. In the same manner, a temporary cap is placed on your tooth until the permanent cap is in place. Your cosmetic dentist can easily apply these caps. In some cases, a filling may be needed to naturally counter the weight of the cap. Coloration and match are important factors in the procedure. If the procedure is done properly, there will be little to no evidence of any dental work.
