A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the visible portion of a damaged tooth (the tooth enamel). This restoration is also known as a tooth-shaped cap, and it can help you restore the health, function, and appearance of your tooth. To tell you a little more about dental crowns, our dentist, Dr. Kevin Oakes, is happy to share some dental crown facts with you. Those are:
-A dental crown can be used to protect a weak tooth, restore a broken tooth, repair a severely decayed tooth, enhance the appearance of a tooth, help a severely worn-down tooth, and more.
-A dental crown can help children if the tooth is at high risk of tooth decay and they have poor oral hygiene. It can also help children if a tooth has been severely decayed and it can’t support a dental filling.
-There are many different types of dental crowns available, like porcelain, metal, stainless steel, and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
-Dental crowns are custom made for your specific smile, and they are typically crafted in a dental laboratory.
