How dental crowns can protect and repair natural teeth

Restoring your smile, especially the teeth near the front of the smile is critical to ensuring not only a beautiful smile but a healthy one. When tooth damage becomes more advanced and compromises the integrity of a tooth, a crown is often indicated to restore the form and function. Teeth damaged by decay, disease, or trauma need to be restored as soon as possible to avoid more severe damage or even the loss of a tooth. Our team at Leah Zils, DDS, provides metal-free crown solutions to renew the smile.

What Is A Dental Crown?

Dental crowns are a restoration used to fix any natural teeth damaged due to decay or trauma. They are custom-made prosthetics that fit over the entire tooth, encasing it in porcelain to support the structural integrity of the tooth. This gives the tooth strength and durability and improves its appearance by mimicking the look of natural tooth enamel.  

When Might I Need A Dental Crown?

Our team may suggest fabricating and placing a dental crown in various situations. These include:

  • A tooth that is broken or cracked due to trauma or decay, and an ordinary filling is not strong enough to repair it.
  • A severely decayed tooth cannot be saved with a filling and needs complete coverage with a dental crown to restore its overall function and appearance.
  • Age or wear, especially when a tooth becomes worn down, discolored, or misshapen, as a crown can help to rejuvenate the tooth’s appearance.
  • After root canal treatment, these procedures leave the teeth more brittle and needing reinforcement with dental crowns.

In addition to these situations, patients may also opt for dental crowns as part of cosmetic dentistry procedures. This could include improving the size, shape, or alignment of teeth for an improved aesthetic outcome.
