Crowns are a common dental treatment.
Crowns are a common dental treatment. When a tooth’s protective layer is damaged beyond repair we have to replace it. A custom made crown will protect the tooth and allow it to function properly again. Well-fit and designed crowns can last for decades.
There are several options for crowns, such as tooth colored, metal, and cosmetic crowns. Crowns are selected based on what material would work best in your mouth as well as your preferences in appearance.
Crowns are usually needed because of large cavities or cavities around large fillings. Because people are keeping their teeth longer than ever, we are also seeing patients need crowns because of cracking. Our teeth’s protective layer (enamel) is a lot like glass and just like a chipped windshield, its strength can hold up with a chip as well as a crack. However once that crack gets big enough, the strength is compromised.
Advanced materials and adhesives are allowing us to custom create crowns that look beautiful and can last decades. However, our goal is still to keep your natural teeth healthy with preventive procedures.
