A dental crown is a restoration that can restore the normal function and appearance of your tooth. With many different dental restorative options available, it can be difficult to determine which one you might need on your own. Here are some instances in which you could benefit from a dental crown:

To Restore a Damaged Tooth

Small cavities can be removed and filled with regular dental filling material; however, when the cavity is large enough, a crown might be needed to cover part or all of the tooth. A crown can also hold together a cracked or badly broken tooth. A crown can protect your remaining tooth structure, and restore your normal chewing function.

To Cover a Discolored Tooth

Crowns aren’t just fintended for functional purposes—they can also enhance the appearance of your smile! If you have a badly discolored tooth, a crown can cover it, and no one will even notice it’s there. Crowns are custom-made to fit comfortably over your tooth and blend in with the surrounding teeth. The crown will even be colored to match your natural tooth color. With a crown, you can feel confident showing your smile again!

To Help Fill a Space Between Teeth

A crown can be used as part of a dental bridge to fill a single gap or multiple gaps between your teeth. A dental bridge requires two crowns to be placed on the teeth on each side of the gap. These hold the filler tooth/teeth in place to restore the appearance and function of your missing tooth/teeth. By filling the gap with a dental bridge, you also prevent surrounding teeth from shifting out of place.

Dr. Schultz can help determine if you could benefit from a dental crown or bridge.  Call to schedule your appointment today!
