Get Your Dream Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry
What is a Dental Crown?
When a tooth needs to be covered and shielded from further damage or infection, a tooth-shaped cap called a dental crown is needed. The crown is cemented to the top of the tooth and encases the entire portion that can be seen above the gum line. It can be made from many different materials depending on your needs as well as your own preferences.
How Will I Know If I Need a Dental Crown?
While crowns can be placed for cosmetic reasons (such as to hide a misshapen or discolored tooth), they’re normally used to repair teeth that have been broken, worn down, or otherwise damaged. They’re also a possible solution for badly decayed teeth that have weakened to the point where they might fall apart. We can assess the damage before deciding whether a crown or another kind of treatment is needed.
