Improvements and advances in dental materials and technology have given us many great options for restoring a damaged or unattractive smile. But one time-tested solution that has been used for decades is dental crowns.
How We Use Dental Crowns
Also referred to as “caps,” dental crowns are a reliable and durable restoration that protect and strengthen your teeth.
If the structure of a tooth is severely damaged by decay, trauma, or fracture, and a filling isn’t sufficient to protect it, a crown is usually recommended. The restoration surrounds a damaged tooth to provide support and protection. There are many materials to choose from when considering a dental crown, but all-porcelain is the most popular for esthetic reasons.
A few cases where we would recommend a crown are:
- You have a tooth that has already been filled multiple times and needs further protection
- We have performed root canal therapy, and a crown is recommended to protect and strengthen the weakened tooth.
- You have had a dental implant placed, and a crown is needed to restore function and appearance.
