As we get a little older, our teeth begin to change and are prone to decay. If your tooth is beyond repair with a filling material, we may recommend that the best viable option to save the tooth is a full crown. The reasons for this type of restoration in a badly damaged tooth are durability, cosmetic appearance, and overall support of the chewing function. There are a few different options ranging from a full gold crown to a full ceramic and esthetic crown. Contact us today for a consultation to see what is the best for you.
What are Dental Crowns?
Getting a dental crown is a very popular procedure that is used to repair a damaged tooth. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that will cover the damaged tooth. Once the cap is applied, it can virtually unnoticeable as it can resemble your natural tooth.
Dental Crowns can be used to repair:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Cover and seal large fillings
- Cap a root canal
- Cover and seal dental implants
Dental Crowns can be made using resin or porcelain to match your natural teeth but can also be made out of other metal materials, if preferred.
