The Many Ways a Dental Crown Restores Your Smile

Dental Crowns for Cracked Teeth in Garland TX area

When you come to Kings Dental in Garland, Texas, with a missing or severely decayed/damaged tooth, Dr. Vidya Suri will likely recommend a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap custom-designed to snugly fit over your cracked or otherwise compromised tooth to enhance its function and form. Placing a crown involves removing a bit of the enamel, but you’ll be left with a durable restoration.

The functional and cosmetic uses of a dental crown

Dental crowns are at the center of several treatments in dentistry. Your dentist may recommend a dental crown to resolve the dental issues below.

  • Protecting a weak tooth: We’ll likely recommend a dental crown if your tooth is significantly weakened with decay or damage. A dental crown supports the remaining tooth structure to provide reinforcement for many years to come
  • Covering a dental implant: An implant is a titanium post surgically implanted in the jawbone to act as a tooth root. Once the titanium fixture integrates with the bone, the dentist restores your implant with a natural-looking crown that becomes your tooth’s visible, functional portion
  • Securing a dental bridge: A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth using a set of prosthetic teeth attached to the adjacent teeth using dental crowns. The dental crown secures a dental bridge and helps to distribute bite forces evenly
  • Protecting a tooth after a root canal: The dentist removes the diseased tissue during root canal treatment to eliminate the tooth infection. After a root canal, your tooth will be structurally weakened, so the dentist reinforces it with a dental crown to ensure it offers optimal function for many years
  • Aesthetically enhance your tooth: Dental crowns move beyond restorative dentistry to address several cosmetic issues. Your dentist can use a dental crown to camouflage stubborn discoloration or a misshapen tooth
