Crown / Bridges
Your teeth might get damaged over time. This can occur for a variety of causes, including dental decay, trauma, or regular use. Your teeth’s shape and size can deteriorate. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that fit over your natural tooth. Consider it a snug cap for your teeth. The crown improves the shape, size, strength, and look of the tooth. The dental crown is a cap that covers the visible section of your tooth and is cemented into place.
Why Would I Need A Dental Crown?
A dental crown may be required for a variety of reasons, including:
- Protecting a weak tooth from breaking (perhaps due to decay) or keeping a weak tooth together if sections of it are fractured.
- Restoring a tooth that has been damaged or significantly worn down.
- Using a big filling to cover and support a tooth that has very little tooth left.
- Using a dental bridge to keep it in place.
- Covering teeth that are crooked or extremely stained.
- A dental implant is covered.
- Covering a tooth that has had a root canal treatment.
