Breaking or chipping a tooth is never part of your plan. Unfortunately, accidents happen. When the unexpected occurs, Star Care Dental in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, offers dental crowns for teeth. Dental crowns cover and protect damaged teeth and restore your smile.
Dental crowns are essentially caps or covers for teeth. When a tooth is broken or badly decayed, a crown is placed over the tooth to protect it from further damage. As part of a cosmetic or restorative treatment plan, crowns are used to protect and restore the following imperfections:
Additionally, crowns are used with other dental restorations after tooth loss. A dental implant topped with a crown may replace a single tooth. Crowns are also used to support or anchor a bridge that replaces one or more missing teeth.
Dental crowns may be stainless steel or metal, all-porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Your dentist can help determine which type of crown is best for your needs, area of the mouth, and budget.
Traditionally, crowns are fabricated at an off-site laboratory using impressions of the patient’s teeth and detailed notes from the dentist. A porcelain tooth crown is made to match the adjacent teeth in size, shape, and color. Since the crown is created off-site, a temporary crown may be placed while you wait. Once the permanent crown is completed, it is cemented into place at a later dental visit.
Crowns are a cost-effective way to preserve your natural teeth. They protect your oral health by helping you avoid the effects of tooth loss. Crowns seal out and prevent damage or decay from spreading. There are additional benefits to using dental crowns.
