When a Dental Crown Is Necessary
You may be a candidate for a crown procedure if you have decay that has destroyed a good portion of the tooth structure, a broken tooth, or recently had a root canal. If your teeth are severely worn down, we can perform restorative procedures to strengthen the teeth and place crowns to protect them from further damage. In some cases, a crown can be placed to mask tooth discoloration or other imperfections.
Benefits of Crowns
Crowns offer numerous benefits to the patient. They can protect weak teeth, complete dental implants, and restore damaged teeth to their natural shape and size. Some patients get crowns purely for cosmetic benefits, while others need them to restore proper functioning of the teeth and jaw. If you want to improve the quality of your smile with a permanent solution, a dental crown may be your best option. When placed properly, a crown can effectively strengthen the tooth to reduce the risk of future damage.
