What Is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are caps that restore the shape and size of teeth after they have been damaged and offer protection from further damage. Dental crowns are a great option for restoring and protecting damaged teeth, and are a standard procedure offered at Atlantic Coast Dentistry.
Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Are you currently dealing with a damaged tooth, but have been putting off seeking dental treatment? You may be a great candidate for a dental crown to restore your smile!
Common Reasons You May Need a Dental Crown
When a tooth is damaged, there is always hope that it can heal on its own. Unfortunately, teeth do not heal or restore damaged enamel on their surface. However, we can help to protect and restore a tooth with a dental crown. While dental crowns can top dental implants to replace missing teeth, they can also cover:
• Broken or chipped teeth
• Misshapen teeth
• Non-uniform teeth
• Teeth with large fillings to provide strength and protection
• Teeth that are worn-down or weak
Dental crowns are a versatile treatment which can protect a weak tooth from infection, restore a damaged tooth, cover a dental implant, hold a dental bridge in place and provide a great, natural appearance.
If you have a damaged or weak tooth, then strengthen and enhance that tooth by scheduling an appointment with us for a dental crown. Our team can examine your smile and determine which treatment path best fits your needs.
We look forward to hearing from you!
