Dental crowns serve as caps for your teeth, protecting them against damage and allowing you to use your tooth like normal. Dental crowns are used in a variety of situations, and they can repair teeth that have been damaged due to trauma or decay. If any of these scenarios sound like you, a dental crown may be an option to restore your tooth to its natural function and appearance.
Protect Your Tooth After a Root Canal
If you need root canal therapy in order to save your tooth, you will likely require a crown after. A root canal can affect the strength and integrity of your tooth, and it is more likely to crack later in life. A crown is recommended in order to strengthen the tooth and to prevent future damage. You'll be able to use the tooth like normal without pain or sensitivity.
Treat Significant Decay or Large Cavities
Tooth decay weakens the teeth, and we will need to remove the affected area. This involves removing some of the existing structure in order to rid the tooth of the decayed or diseased portion. This can leave your tooth vulnerable to new bacteria, so in the case of a large cavity and filling, we may recommend a dental crown. This can protect the remaining tooth from damage due to new bacteria.
Save Your Tooth after Fracture or Cracks
A deep fracture or crack to the tooth requires treatment to prevent further damage. A dental crown can help, as it will protect the tooth and can also decrease pain and sensitivity. A dental crown will hold the crack together and will distribute biting stress evenly onto the tooth so that no further damage is done.
