A dental crown strengthens your tooth, protecting it from damage. Learn whether you’re a good candidate for dental crowns and what you can expect once you have one.
Who’s a Good Candidate for Dental Crowns?
Crowns can resolve a variety of concerns, including:
Certain Cosmetic Issues
Crowns are also used in several other procedures. For instance, if you need a bridge, crowns will be placed on the adjacent teeth on each side of the crown to ensure the proper level of support. Crowns are also placed on top of dental implants.
Are There Other Treatment Options Available?
We have a number of ways to address tooth loss. Which one we choose will vary depending on your situation:
Fillings are the most conservative option, allowing us to remove a small amount of decayed material and replace it.
Inlays and onlays are designed to replace more tooth material than fillings, without replacing most or all of the tooth.
Crowns allow us to get rid of any tooth decay and replace the tooth material without using implants.
Implants allow us to replace an entire tooth that is either already lost or beyond repair.
What to Expect From Your Dental Crown
Once the crown is placed, you still need to follow good home care practices. This ensures that your teeth and gums stay healthy. You also want to avoid chewing on ice, as this puts undue pressure on the crown.
