When a dental filling isn’t sufficient to repair a damaged, decayed, or injured tooth, your Westbrook dentist may recommend dental crowns near Guilford, CT to restore your tooth’s functionality. Restoration dentistry is used to not only improve the health of your teeth, but also improve the appearance of your teeth.
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that replaces the natural crown of a tooth. As the name suggests, it covers the top of your tooth, increasing your tooth’s durability while keeping out food particles and bacteria. 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 an impression of it, and place temporary protection for the tooth until the permanent crown is ready. Our goal is to always preserve as much of your existing tooth as possible, with the dental crown sealing your restored tooth, as this makes for a stronger restoration. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, dental crowns are made from strong porcelain that is virtually invisible.
Crowns are a great option in a number of situations. They are used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore a tooth that is already broken. A crown is also a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
