Understanding the Basics
What Are Dental Crowns?
A dental crown is a false tooth that fits over your existing tooth structure, covering it up and replacing it all the way down to the gum line. The natural tooth enamel is trimmed and then a crown is built that looks and feels just like a natural tooth. The crown is bonded in place permanently, protecting your tooth and restoring your smile.
Dental crowns are a great way to restore teeth that have serious stains and other cosmetic issues. They are also a great restorative treatment option for damaged and decayed teeth. They require no special care, can easily last 15+ years with proper oral hygiene, and are very versatile, making them the best option for many common cosmetic and restorative dental issues.
Common Reasons for a Crown
Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Cosmetic crowns are typically only used when an alternative cosmetic dentistry treatment, such as a porcelain veneer or dental bonding, is not appropriate for restoring your tooth. For example, if a tooth is very misshapen or stained, it may be a better option to use a crown, compared to other cosmetic treatments.
Dental crowns are also required to treat damaged teeth. Teeth with serious cavities or that have been broken or cracked by dental trauma are usually treated with crowns. A crown can restore the natural shape and appearance of the tooth, and protect the underlying enamel from any further damage. Crowns are also often used to restore teeth after treatment with root canal therapy.
