When a tooth has been damaged by injury, decay, or simply day-to-day wear and tear, it may need more restorative care than a simple dental filling. When a tooth requires significant restoration, our dentist may recommend a dental crown. You may have heard of crowns before, but would you like to learn more? Why does your dentist use dental crowns and what are they for?
Dental crowns are usually made from porcelain, gold, or porcelain fused to metal. Crowns are specifically designed fit over the top of a natural tooth. Crowns are custom molded for each patient to provide a natural-looking, comfortable restoration. Dental crowns are used extensively in both restorative and cosmetic dental services; not only do crowns protect and strengthen damaged teeth, but they can also the aesthetics of a tooth. Dental crowns are often play an important role in completing a root canal treatment. And, with the proper care, a crown can last for many years.
