Today’s dentistry is a far cry from years past. Patients today do not need to settle for obvious silver fillings or metal crowns because there are treatment options available that look just as beautiful as a natural tooth. What’s more, by treating a patient with the most up to date technology and minimally-invasive techniques, more tooth structure can be conserved allowing for a healthy, strong smile.
Why would you want a Dental Crown?
There are several instances when a patient may need a crown and a few include:
to help protect a weak tooth that may be cracked
to fix a tooth that may have a piece broken off
if a cavity is too large and there isn't much tooth structure left.
Dental Crowns can also be used for cosmetic work to make a tooth visually look better, to cover up yellowing, or in completing the Dental Implant process.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is basically a "cap" that is placed over a tooth after the Doctor removes any decay or poor tooth structure. It is tooth-colored and looks just like every other tooth. It helps restore the original tooth's strength, shape and size.
