Why We Use Dental Crowns
A dental crowns is placed over a tooth when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth, or it has become badly damaged or decayed. The dental crown, also known as a cap, is a tooth-shaped cover placed directly over a tooth. Crowns have many purposes, but the main purpose of dental crowns is to help restore a tooth’s functionality and appearance. If a tooth is weak from decay, a crown is commonly placed on top of the tooth to protect it from breaking. In cases where a tooth is already cracked, the dental crown holds the pieces together. The another purpose of dental crowns is also to help repair the broken tooth. In cases where there is not a lot of tooth left, but there is a lot of filling, the crown can be used to cover and support it. They’re also used to hold a dental bridge in place, to cover severely discolored teeth, and to cover a dental implant.
