These restorations look completely natural and are custom-made for the patient to match their existing teeth. When placed by an experienced dentist, most patients will enjoy their crowns for many years!
When might I need a dental crown?
Dental crowns are used in a lot of different situations. By understanding how they function, most patients can find out if they need a dental crown. Dental crowns may be utilized in the following situations:
- To protect a tooth that is weakened by root canal (endodontic) therapy
- To strengthen a tooth that has lost a lot of structure from a large area of decay
- To fuse to false teeth called pontics to create a dental bridge for missing teeth
- To cover the abutment of a dental implant to function as a false tooth
- To protect a tooth that has been chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged
- To cover a tooth that has imperfections such as permanent staining
