If you have teeth that have been severely damaged by trauma, decay, or due to some other reason, you may be a candidate for a dental crown. Here at Monroe Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of services including the fabrication and installation of dental crowns.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a dental construction that is fitted over the top of a tooth. It is similar to a tooth filling in that it is created with a composite material that mimics the look, feel, and operation of your natural tooth. It differs from a filling in that, a filling typically goes in the tooth, a dental crown fits over the top of the tooth.
Why are Dental Crowns Used?
Typically, a dental crown is used to protect a tooth that has been damaged. It is a permanent fixture, meaning you won’t ever take it out. If your tooth has been damaged, a dental crown can prevent the damage from getting worse. Or, if you simply have a tooth that is severely weakened and at risk of being damaged, having a crown in place can help prevent this from happening.
