Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps cemented over treated teeth. They are always customized to match your smile and look just like your untreated teeth. In addition, dental crowns provide stability and more.
Here’s how your prosthodontist in Doylestown uses dental crowns:
#1 Following Root Canal Treatment or Tooth Trauma
If a tooth is deeply infected, Dr. Lindo may recommend a root canal treatment to ease your pain and prevent the need for extraction. The final step in the root canal process is typically dental crown placement. The crown protects your treated tooth against future damage.
A dental crown may also be necessary if you have deep decay in the tooth or if it has suffered a trauma.
#2 As Part of Cosmetic Dentistry in Doylestown
A dental crown can conceal many tooth flaws, including:
You can opt to crown a single tooth or several based on your preference.
#3 As Part of Tooth Replacement
A dental crown is the final step in dental implant treatment. It is the crown that acts as your new tooth following implant to jaw integration.
For a dental bridge, dental crowns anchor replacement teeth to healthy adjoining teeth.
