Most patients do not come to the dentist seeking survey crowns, but in some circumstances, Dr. Jason Roe may recommend you receive a survey crown.
A survey crown is a full coverage restoration or cap that completely encompasses the tooth and, at the same time, functions under a patient’s partial denture. Traditional partials require the partial to rest on various teeth for support. Sometimes the supporting teeth require a full coverage restoration. A survey crown provides a change in shape and color while providing strength to the tooth supporting the partial denture.
