3 Instances Where A Dental Crown Can Benefit You

Ideally, your trip to the dentist will not require a dental crown, or any other form of restorative dental care. Unfortunately, issues can arise that demand treatment. Cavities are a common issue, but there are other scenarios that could require the placement of a dental crown. Fortunately, you can look forward to receiving a restoration that mimics your natural tooth structure, so you will not have to worry about how it affects your appearance. You can also take advantage of the convenience of CEREC dental crown technology, which can lead to the production of your crown in a single appointment. 

1. A Crown Can Protect Your Tooth After A Serious Cavity Or Injury

Crowns are often placed when patients need to have a tooth protected after a serious cavity, particularly a cavity that requires a root canal treatment. These restorations are also used to protect teeth that suffer damage after an injury.

2. Your Crown Can Add Needed Support To An Undersized Tooth

There are cases where a crown can be placed on a tooth to address congenital issues. A particularly small tooth might not contribute properly to your biting and chewing functions, leading to potential issues with your jaw, and disproportionate wear and tear on other teeth.

3. A Crown Can Act Like A Prosthetic When Placed On A Dental Implant

Your dentist can provide a custom dental crown that can act as a restoration for a dental implant, and effectively serve as a prosthetic tooth. A life-like dental crown can be counted on in biting and chewing tasks, while also improving your overall appearance.
