Dental Crown

Close up 3D rendering of a dental crown being placed on a shaved down tooth A dental crown is a highly successful therapy for restoring a tooth that has become damaged, and it has several unique benefits over alternative treatments. A crown is a cap that fits over a tooth. It is utilized to improve and safeguard the architecture of your teeth and guarantee that your tooth's natural functions are restored.

Your dentist polishes the tooth, takes an imprint, and a specialist creates the crown in a lab. Crowns are used to treat a variety of dental problems. They can be used to protect significantly decaying, cracked, or broken teeth. Crowns are utilized in the repair of loose restorations and to keep bridges in place. They are used to restore the look of your teeth.

Crowns are generally constructed of ceramics, although they can also be made of metals such as gold and stainless steel. If you opt for more conventional crowns, your dentist will choose one that matches the color of your natural teeth. Before putting a crown in location, portions of the teeth are generally filed away, to make room for the crown.

Why Do you Need a Crown?

A crown preserves the natural shape, structure, and usefulness of a broken or diseased tooth. A crown can safeguard the tooth or improve its appearance. Our dentist may advise you to get a crown when there is not enough natural tooth architecture left, to strengthen a tooth with an extensive filling, to replace lost teeth with a bridge, to restore a broken tooth, or to cover a tooth that is crooked or unattractive.

If you participate in sports, you must not inflict direct impact on your crown. Having our dentist construct a custom made preventative sports guard would be ideal to help protect your teeth, as well as your new dental crown.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are an effective solution to a variety of dental issues. They are capable of saving a tooth that has been severely affected by decay, hence preventing additional harm to a tooth that has worn away. Crowns also help protect a tooth after it has undergone root canal surgery. Dental crowns can also hold together a badly cracked or fractured tooth together.

Who is a Candidate for Crowns?

Patients who are suitable candidates for dental crowns typically have teeth that have been chipped, broken, fragmented, or with severe tooth decay. They may also have extensive dental restorations, especially, those that make the tooth fragile and prone to fracture.
