When a dental filling isn’t enough to repair a tooth damaged by decay or injury, our Westbrook dentist may recommend dental crowns near Old Lyme, CT to restore your tooth’s functionality. Restoration dentistry is generally used to improve the health of your teeth, but it can also improve their appearance in notable ways.
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 and 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 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.
Crowns can be a great option in a number of situations. They can be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is also a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
