Crowns are used to restore a cracked, fractured, or decayed tooth to its proper form and function. Crowns may be recommended to help improve the esthetic appearance of your teeth.
Other reasons for needing a dental crown include:
- To protect a tooth with a large filling from cracking or fracturing.
- To cover severely discolored teeth.
- To restore a fractured or cracked tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down.
- To help strengthen a tooth that has had root canal therapy.
Crowns are typically made from high strength tooth colored porcelain. It is important that you continue to practice proper oral hygiene to prevent the tooth under the crown from becoming decayed. Much like your natural teeth, crowned teeth require routine brushing and flossing. Contact our office for more information.
