Why Might I Need A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is placed over the remaining portion of compromised a compromised tooth. The crown protects the tooth from further damage and saves the tooth from eventually dying completely.
Patients may need a dental crown when fillings can no longer hold in the tooth or after procedures like root canals.
The Dental Crown Placement Procedure
First, the dentist will prepare the tooth for the crown by removing excess enamel and shaping it so that the crown can sit correctly on top of the tooth.
Then, a crown that has been shaped and measured to fit naturally in the patient's mouth will be bonded to the tooth by the dentist.
The crown creates a protective shield for the rest of the tooth. The crown can be used just like a natural tooth, returning both the function and the beauty to the patient's smile.
