Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?
If you have an old filling that has started to break down or needs to be replaced, then you may need a dental crown. Do you have a fractured tooth? Sensitive teeth? Or a chipped tooth? These are all reasons to replace your tooth with a dental crown.
As well some patients want to improve the appearance of their natural teeth as they may be functional, yet unappealing visually, or the tooth may be malpositioned or even discolored. If you answer yes to any of the preceding, then you may need a dental crown!
What is a Dental Crown?
Traditional white fillings are sometimes not the best option for restoring your teeth. Dental Crowns are recommended for teeth with fillings that exceed the natural tooth structure. In addition to large fillings, teeth that have undergone root canal therapy along with teeth that suffer from reoccurring tooth decay also benefit from Dental Crowns.
Dental Crowns are recommended when:
- You have a tooth that requires a filling that will exceed the natural tooth structure.
- Your teeth have extensive damage, tooth decay, and/or fracture lines.
- Your teeth are discolored and have compromised tooth aesthetics.
- Your teeth have undergone Root Canal Therapy. After root canal therapy, teeth become brittle and are more susceptible to fracture. Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy must be protected with a dental crown in order to prevent breakage down the road.
Dental Crowns can be made from several different types of materials, including Porcelain, Porcelain fused to metal and all-metal crowns. Your Scenic Acres Dentist will suggest the best option for your situation and your budget. Crowns can also be used to change your smile and the appearance of your anterior teeth.
