What are dental crowns for?
You've had dental fillings in the past, so why do you need a dental crown? Great question! A dental crown is designed to restore an entire tooth. It's recommended when your tooth sustains an injury, trauma, or more decay or damage than a filling can repair. Sometimes it may be the breakdown of an old dental filling that necessitates the need for a crown.
A crown is custom-designed to mimic your tooth, so you'll be able to eat, smile, talk, and chew as you were used to doing. You'll also be able to brush and floss your teeth normally with your new crown, so it's easy to care for.
Crowns are fabricated using high-quality ceramic porcelain. Your dentist will custom shade it so it matches your existing teeth and complements your smile in a natural way. This means that when you smile, no one will notice your dentistry!
A crown protects your natural roots, so if you have a tooth in need of repair, it's important not to delay your treatment as it may cause decay to move into the root of your tooth and cause a dental infection. Contact your team at 50th and France Dental Care today to learn more about dental crowns.
