When is a Crown Necessary?

Protecting teeth is important to keeping them beautiful and intact. Broken, chipped, and otherwise cracked teeth need to be protected somehow to keep them from requiring extraction. When trauma occurs to a tooth, it is often best that a cosmetic dentist provides specific types of dental crowns in Charleston for patients. Dr. Greenberg of Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA offers dental crowns for patients who need to protect their tooth from damage.

When is a Crown Necessary

Crowns are substantial restorations that are made out of porcelain and zirconia for bonding over the top of a broken or traumatized tooth. They are placed for protection. Many dental crowns at Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA are made with zirconia for two primary reasons: zirconia is extremely strong and durable, and it is the best replicator of natural tooth enamel. Patients can enjoy natural looking restorations such as dental crowns to bond over their teeth for protection.
