What Exactly Is a Dental Crown Used For?

Posted on 10/11/2021 by Henricksen Family Dental
What Exactly Is a Dental Crown Used For?Dental crowns are covers placed over a damaged tooth. They are used to cover, protect, and restore your teeth' shape in case dental fillings don't fix the problem. These oral appliances can be made out of porcelain, metals, ceramics, and resin. What makes them advantageous is that they don't require special care other than good oral hygiene.

The Use of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed on top of your damaged tooth. These dental appliances help restore your tooth's size, shape, appearance, and strength. They are cemented into position on your teeth, covering the visible parts. Therefore, knowing the roles of dental crowns will help you understand their importance.

Dental crowns can be used to protect a weak tooth damaged by conditions like tooth decay. Crowns help prevent it from breaking by keeping the weakened tooth together. Dental crowns can also be used to restore severely worn down or broken tooth. This is important because broken teeth can be harmful to your health. They can cause cuts that lead to bleeding.

Dental crowns are also used to support teeth with a large dental filling. This helps prevent the dental filling from falling off. Keep in mind that dental fillings are used to fill up holes left by cavities. When the holes are too big, our professionals will use more dental fillings. Given that dental fillings could have stability problems, a dental crown covers them to provide support. As a result, you will have a stable tooth.

As much as dental crowns help restore your smile, they could get damaged by several factors. This is why you need to take good care of them. You should maintain high standards of oral hygiene to prevent the accumulation of bacteria. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on the use of dental crowns.
