How Dental Crowns Strengthen Damaged Teeth
This tooth-shaped restoration can support and bolster weak and injured teeth.
Naturally, your goal should be to protect and preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. Unfortunately, accidents happen and you may just find yourself dealing with a cracked, broken or infected tooth. When this happens it’s good to know that you have a team of dentists in Framingham, MA, that are ready to restore your smile in no time.
About Dental Crowns
Most of the time a damaged tooth can benefit from getting a dental crown, a hollow tooth-shaped cap that fits directly over the tooth where it is cemented into place at the gumline. The crown covers the tooth completely, becoming its new outer layer. The crown is made from a durable material such as porcelain, which allows it to protect the damaged tooth from further damage while also making it possible to chew, speak and bite without issues.
Reasons for Dental Crowns
Many people end up needing a dental crown at some point during their lifetime. In fact, chances are good that you already know someone who has a dental crown. Our Framingham, MA, family dentists pride themselves on creating lifelike, strong and dependable crowns that match the color, shape and size of your smile, so they blend right in.
You may benefit from a dental crown if,
- You need to get root canal treatment
- You have an infected, weak or worn tooth
- Your tooth is cracked, fractured or broken
- You have a severely discolored or disfigured tooth
- You are getting a dental implant to replace a single missing tooth
- You are getting a dental bridge to fill gaps in your smile
A dental crown can be used to restore a damaged tooth, while also providing cosmetic benefits. A traumatic injury doesn’t just affect the integrity of the tooth, it can also affect the tooth’s appearance. By getting a crown we can restore both the structure’s resiliency while also hiding discolorations and cosmetic damage caused by trauma.
