Sometimes it is tempting not to fix your tooth if you are having a problem. Perhaps you do not want to go through the expense as long as there is no pain. Perhaps you don’t want to go through the pain of having a tooth fixed. However, rather than lose a tooth you should opt to fix it. It is always better to keep as much of the original healthy tooth as possible. Placing a dental crown is not painful. It is easy and can restore your tooth health and your ability to chew a variety of healthy foods. Don’t fool around, get a crown.
Why A Crown?
Dental crowns are often the treatment of choice for a variety of issues. Some of those issues include:
- A broken tooth
- To reinforce a tooth with a large filling
- To reinforce a tooth after root canal therapy
- To cover a stained, misshapen, cracked, or fractured tooth
- To cover an implant post
What Crowns Do
Crowns reinforce the strength of a weak tooth; they restore your bite, they restore your smile and, most importantly, they can save your teeth from extraction. It is always best to keep as much of the original healthy tooth structure as you can when a tooth is damaged. Extraction should be the last choice. Crowns are bonded over the remaining healthy tooth structure of the original tooth. They are fabricated according to the shape of the original tooth and are made to blend with the surrounding dentition. Therefore, your dental crown will look and perform just like your original tooth.
