The Purpose of a Dental Crown

Posted .

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength and to improve its appearance. The restoration is cemented into place and it covers the entire tooth up to the gumline.

There are many reasons why you might need a dental crown, and some of those reasons are because:

-You need to protect a weak tooth and keep it from breaking.

-You need to restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been extremely worn down.

-You need to support a tooth that has a large filling but doesn’t have a lot of tooth structure left.

-You need to hold a dental bridge in place.

-You need to cover a misshapen or discolored tooth to improve its appearance.

-You need to cover a dental implant.

-You need to improve the appearance of your smile.
