Common Dental Crown Solutions

Common Dental Crown SolutionsCrowns are used to restore a damaged tooth and are a versatile restoration option. General dentists install dental crowns quite often and these restorations are a great choice if you want to make your teeth stronger or more cosmetically pleasing. It is necessary that you understand the choices of crowns available such as porcelain crowns, metal crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, or zirconia crowns.

Why Crowns are Necessary

Crowns help protect weak teeth from breaking. They are placed entirely over a tooth, allowing the tooth to become stronger. Weak teeth are more likely to break and once you have a broken tooth, you may need to receive root canal therapy to repair it. At times, the tooth may break so severely that is irreparable, which means you need to have it extracted.

A dental crown may be used if a dental filling has failed to repair a decayed tooth. If you have a large filling, over time, your tooth may weaken, allowing a dentist to restore it again. Getting a crown placed over the tooth helps give it back its strength, which means that it is able to work as it should.

Additionally, a dental crown makes your teeth look more appealing. Besides saving and protecting damaged teeth, you can choose crowns for cosmetic reasons. Wearing dental crowns will improve the look of a poorly shaped or stained tooth.

If you need dental crowns to enhance your dental health, you can consult with our dental team. Our dentist will examine the nature of damage to your mouth and see if crowns are a better choice. If a filling can work for a decayed tooth, the dentist may consider it over crowns. Since dental crowns are a great option and correct various dental issues like discoloration and decay, you may need to ask the dentist if you can get them. Book an appointment with our team for assessment and evaluation for dental crowns and other treatments.
