Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns are a multi-use dental appliance that can restore or enhance a tooth. Their hard structure and natural look make them an ideal way to fix many dental issues.

Reasons for Dental Crowns

Most common uses for crowns:

  • Protect a Weak Tooth – if you have a tooth that has lost its structure or strength, a crown can be used to restore the strength and prevent future fractures.
  • Replace a Large Filling – if a filling is too large, it can negatively impact the health of the tooth, while a crown can better protect it.
  • Attach a Bridge – when a missing tooth is replaced via a bridge, the neighboring teeth have crowns affixed to the top to keep the bridge in place.
  • Cover a Dental Implant – when a tooth is replaced with a dental implant, a crown is attached to the top to replace the missing tooth.
  • Fix Discolored or Poorly Shaped Tooth – the clean and white look of a crown is amazing for restoring a discolored or oddly shaped tooth.
  • Cover a Tooth that Had a Root Canal – after the root canal, a lot of the structure of the tooth will have been removed, but a crown can be attached to the top and help the tooth act as normal.
  • Protect a Weak Tooth – if a tooth does not have a strong chance of staying strong and viable, preventively placing a crown on top is a great way to help the tooth.
