If you have a tooth that has been severely damaged or decayed, we may recommend a dental crown. A crown, which is sometimes referred to as a cap, is a restoration that can be used for many purposes, including:
- Covering a tooth that is structurally compromised
- Preventing a weak tooth from fracturing
- Covering a damaged or misshaped tooth
- Acting as an anchor for a dental bridge
- Completing a dental implant
Aside from its health benefits, a crown can also be used to enhance the beauty of a smile. Starting from the gum line, a crown is used to cap the entire tooth. Our talented dentist, Dr. Hart is pleased to offer all-ceramic crowns. Unlike some crowns, the defining feature of ceramic crowns is that they blend well with your smile to provide you with a natural look. Ceramic crowns are also thinner, making them more useful for patients who have limited room.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns are a treatment that has both aesthetic and functional benefits such as:
- Supporting a tooth that has been significantly damaged by tooth decay.
- Restoring a tooth after endodontic treatment.
- Reinforcing a severely cracked or broken tooth
- Protecting a worn tooth
- Holding a dental bridge
