Why You May Need Dental Crowns – Your Quick and Easy Guide
A dental crown, or cap as they are commonly known, will become necessary when teeth are fractured or badly broken. In fact, as a measure of prevention, crowns are highly recommended. The ability to chew effectively, without causing additional damage, is provided when a crown (cap) is placed upon any damaged or weakened tooth, thus giving it the necessary strength. The crown fits on top of, and completely around the tooth, giving the tooth the needed support.
Since it is simply a cosmetic procedure, a conservative treatment such as bonding or porcelain veneers may be used when a front tooth is cracked or chipped. Injury to the tooth of any kind, or decay is considered severe damage which can weaken the tooth. It could weaken the ability to chew, and cause severe pain, as well as give an unsightly appearance.
Cosmetic Crowns: They can hide any kind of discoloration of any kind, while giving a better appearance to poorly developed teeth. They can also cosmetically straighten teeth and repair any damaged teeth. A crown that is constructed of all ceramic material is not just aesthetic, but is also strong and durable because of the advances provided in porcelain technology.
