We would all like to walk out of the dentist office with a clean bill of health, but large cavities that require dental crowns can occur. To seal large cavities, our Coral Springs team uses ultra-strong dental crowns. These help restore your oral health and improve the appearance of your smile.
This specialized tooth cap is much larger than a filling and is put into place to repair the entire tooth. At Wisdom Dental, our doctors recommend dental crowns to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling. They are also used to top off a dental implant.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength, and size. A dental crown helps recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The tooth crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down to the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Coral Springs dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth that has been weakened from decay from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a dental crown. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able to chew without pain and smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most tooth crowns last between 5 and 15 years depending on the wear and tear and commitment to care. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at Wisdom Dental are important!
