A dental crown is one of the most well-known dental restorations. They are used to encapsulate those teeth that are beyond repair. For example, severely decayed teeth that are beyond saving using traditional methods such as a fillings.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth, to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. Dental crowning can be done to avoid discomfort and infection, such as after Root Canal Therapy. It is important to understand that the tooth will not remain functional forever. It is also possible that decay may remerge and compromise its structural integrity.
Crowns or dental bridges are the optimal choice in such situations. They provide protection to the vulnerable tooth and add structural support. Minimising the possibility of decay since crowns seal the tooth from the rest of the mouth. This means that the longevity of the decaying tooth is drastically increased.
A dentist will recommend dental crowning if you have the following conditions:
Yellow or discoloured teeth
Loose, cracked or chipped tooth
If you grind your teeth, unable to chew food comfortably or if your bite is not aligned properly
If you have undergone a root canal
If you lost your teeth to a periodontal disease or a traumatic injury. Crown with dental implants are an ideal solution.
