Improve the Health & Appearance of Your Teeth
Our expert restoration dentist and dental team are proud to offer a wide variety of services, including dental crowns in Albemarle, NC, and the Davidson and Ballantyne, NC, areas. Restoration dentistry is generally used to improve the health of your teeth, but it can also improve their appearance in notable ways.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that replaces the natural crown of a tooth. It repairs the functionality and restores the size of a tooth that has suffered damage or decay beyond what can be fixed with a dental filling. Our expert dentists prepare the damaged tooth, take a mold, and place temporary protection for the tooth until the permanent crown is ready. Our philosophy is to always preserve as much of your existing tooth as possible, with the dental crown sealing your restored tooth. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, dental crowns are made from strong porcelain that is virtually invisible.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Our dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have teeth with any of the following dental issues:
- Fix Cracked or Broken Teeth – Cracks or breaks can potentially expose the inside of your tooth to the bacteria in your mouth, leading to infection, abscess, and many other problems. A dental crown will support and protect your tooth against further damage while sealing out any harmful bacteria.
- Protect a Tooth Treated With a Root Canal – After we complete a root canal, we can place a dental crown over the tooth. This gives you a natural-looking tooth that withstands biting forces.
- Repair Extensive Tooth Decay – Tooth decay can ravage a tooth, and even after the decay is gone, there may not be enough tooth left to support a simple dental filling. A dental crown will hold your damaged tooth together and give you back a usable tooth.
- Complete Your Dental Implant – Solid crowns are often used as dental implant restorations. After your implant placement in our office, you can have a sturdy, stable, and reliable tooth back in your smile.
There are plenty of other reasons why you may need a dental crown – contact our office today for more information.
