Restorative Dentistry

Crowns

Dental crowns are commonly used fixed prosthetic devices that cover the affected tooth and restore it back to its normal shape, size, and look.

Dental crowns are used for many different restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. A dental crown is a cap-like structure that is custom-made and permanently bonded to your tooth to help restore its look, stability, and function.

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is custom made for your mouth. Dental crowns are used to help restore a tooth that is unsightly or damaged. They are cemented to your teeth. After it is placed, a dental crown will cover the entire portion of your tooth that is above the gumline and will look and function just like the rest of your regular, healthy teeth.

What are dental crowns used for?

If your teeth have been cracked, damaged, or are severely decayed, a dental crown may be used to save the tooth. It is important to preserve your natural teeth at all costs and dental crowns can often prevent the need for extraction. Dental crowns can also restore the look of a tooth that is discolored or otherwise cosmetically damaged. Crowns are used over implants and on teeth that undergo root canal therapy. Additionally, if you need a dental bridge to replace missing teeth, a dental crown is used on either side of an artificial tooth to help anchor it in place.

How do I care for my dental crown?

Caring for a dental crown is no different than caring for your regular teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist will help keep your crown functioning properly for years to come. The crown will protect your teeth from tooth decay, however, your gum line around the tooth is still susceptible to bacteria which can cause decay. Because of this, it is important to maintain sound oral health care practices and take good care of your gums to eliminate bacteria.

Dental crowns can help with a wide variety of dental problems and can restore and save your natural teeth. If you think that you could benefit from a dental crown, or want to learn more, give us a call at (937)-284-4500.
