Many people who experience tooth decay and plaque buildup assume that their only option is a tooth extraction. Luckily, that's where crowns come into the picture. Crowns can preserve your natural tooth as their purpose is to cover the affected area and prevent further damage. Some procedures that require dental crowns are as follows:
- Chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This could cause a gap in your smile that requires surface replacement.
- Root canal treatment could also be the cause as it often requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- Crowns are also helpful to save weak and damage-prone teeth that could be at risk of severe damage.
- A crown may also be fitted for cosmetic reasons
Our dentist will be able to help you decide if a crown is the right treatment for your situation.
