What are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a cap-like prosthetic that is placed over the top of a damaged tooth to allow the patient to enjoy the benefits of a working tooth.

What Are Dental Crowns Used For?

Dental crowns can be used to address the following concerns:

  • To cover the root of the tooth following a root canal.
  • To cover an implant
  • To fix a broken or damaged tooth
  • To protect a weakened tooth from breaking, sometimes by holding separate pieces of a broken tooth together
  • To support a tooth with a large filling
  • To cover discolored or unsightly teeth
  • To protect a tooth that has a high risk for decay (particularly in children)

Think You Might Need a Dental Crown? Don’t Wait!

One of the most common reasons patients need dental crowns is because one or more of their teeth has been severely damaged from tooth decay and may require immediate treatment. Allowing teeth to further decay is not unlike allowing a serious skin wound to go untreated. Over time, the area of concern can begin to fester, leading to serious infections that are likely to require medical attention. At this point, tooth decay may become a threat to your overall health, as well as your smile.

The best thing to do when suffering from dental pain or any dental matter is to visit a skilled and experienced dentist like Dr. Mirhamid Salek. Don’t wait to seek treatment; the earlier you act the better your odds. Very often you can prevent a relatively minor issue from turning into something more serious.
