When you need a dental crown and you discover that we offer natural-looking prosthetics, you will likely feel extraordinary relief! Not only can you fix any existing damage but you can also look forward to a beautifully repaired grin. While this may sound very reassuring to you, there may be a part of you that is wondering when you might actually ever need a crown. Of course, since we like you to feel educated, informed, and optimistic about care, we’d be more than happy to explain times you may find yourself in our chair for the placement of a crown!
Severe Esthetic Damage
Sometimes, you end up damaging the appearance of your tooth or teeth to such an extent that our cosmetic care just won’t suffice. This does not mean that you’ve harmed your oral health. It just means that your stains, textural concerns, etc., are too significant for treatments like veneers, contouring, bonding, and whitening. Porcelain and zirconia crowns can step in and save the day!
Serious Structural Damage
Fillings cannot save teeth that have experienced serious structural damage. Whether associated with decay, an unexpected trauma to your smile, or other issues, a dental crown will offer the stability and protection you’ve lost with the loss of your dental tissue. Crack a tooth, deal with a big cavity, etc., and a crown comes in handy!
After A Root Canal
You receive a root canal treatment because your tooth is infected or your dental pulp is seriously injured. We remove the pulp and then it’s time to make sure your tooth is sealed, safe, and sound. An essential part of this process usually includes dental crown placement. It restores the full structure of any missing tissue and you know bacteria will stay out.
