Four Reasons To Get A Dental Crown
Dental crowns are tooth-colored shells that completely cap the visible portion of a tooth. This helps to strengthen and protect the tooth from damage, while also improving the appearance of the tooth. There are several situations where we may recommend a dental crown.
If you have a broken tooth due to an accident or some form of trauma, we can provide a dental crown to restore your tooth to a healthy condition. This should:
- Prevent the situation from getting worse
- Allow you to chew your food like normal again
- Rejuvenate the look of your tooth so no one will know you’ve broken a tooth
In the case of tooth decay penetrating the enamel of a tooth and infecting the nerves and soft tissue (pulp) inside a tooth, we will most likely recommend a root canal to remove the infection. In many cases following a root canal, we will then provide a dental crown to protect your tooth.
We can also use dental crowns to repair a tooth worn-down from large tooth fillings. Much like a broken tooth or a post-root canal dental crown, the goal here is to strengthen the tooth and restore the healthy and beautiful shape of the tooth.
While typically used for restorative purposes, dental crowns can also be recommended for cosmetic repairs. Here are a handful of flaws that dental crowns can conceal:
- Worn-down teeth
- Discolored or stained teeth
For those that need a damaged or missing tooth completely replaced, we can also restore a dental implant with a dental crown. We work with a specialist who will place your dental implant using 3-D imaging technology.
So you can make an informed decision when it comes to repairing or improving your smile, we will do what any good dentist would do and discuss your situation with you and answer any questions you have.
We offer dental crowns made of either zirconia or e.max. Regardless of which option you choose, we will design your dental crown to be strong and replicate the look of the tooth we are treating.
No matter why you get a dental crown at our Winnipeg, MB office, we will explain how to care for it following your procedure. With proper oral hygiene, your dental crown can last for many years.
