A damaged tooth can receive the needed repairs by being fitted for a dental crown, which is a custom-made dental restoration that is placed over the tooth to conceal it completely. A dental crown can prevent the extraction of a tooth by discouraging additional damage, as well as improving the overall appearance of a weakened or discolored tooth. Your crown can be custom designed for the proper color and shape to seamlessly blend with the rest of your smile.
Placing a dental crown over a damaged tooth can build up the structure and strengthen the tooth as a whole.
A lifetime of wear can result in the splitting of a tooth, but a dental crown can often repair this damage, as well as addressing any breakage, decay, or fracturing, even if the condition has left the tooth in pieces. You may find that a dental crown can hold the tooth together and preserve it for many years.
Other dental procedures can also benefit from receiving a dental crown. These include dental implants, root canal treatment, and large dental fillings. If a tooth is unable to respond to other dental services, a dental crown may be the optimal solution for the tooth.
