Q. What’s the difference? What are they made of?

A. The word “cap” as used in dentistry refers to a crown, made by a dental laboratory which covers the outside of your tooth. Crowns come in a variety of forms. They are made out of a metal, usually gold, or porcelain, or a combination of gold fused to porcelain. They can cover the tooth completely, or partially. Once prepared, an impression is made, the tooth is covered with a “temporary” material for approximately 2 weeks, and then you return for the “permanent” crown, which was fabricated in the lab, to be seated.
