If you have a damaged tooth that needs more protection and reinforcement than a filling can provide, Los Gatos Dentists Dr. HagShenas may recommend a porcelain dental crown restoration to fix the issue. Think of a dental crown as a way to protect a badly damaged tooth, a kind of armor for weakened enamel.
The Purpose of Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns are most often used to restore strength and functionality to a compromised tooth. They are frequently placed on teeth that have been treated with a root canal, or used to finish a dental implant. With that, in the dental bridge procedure, crowns are used to anchor a false tooth to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. A crown may also be used for cosmetic reasons to hide flaws like chips, cracks, or discoloration.
If you have worn or outdated crowns, Los Gatos Dentist Dr. HagShenas will help to improve your appearance and chewing ability by replacing them with a newer version made of the latest composite materials.
No matter what the reason, dental crowns are a great way to improve self-confidence and help you to become proud to show off your smile. With advanced, lifelike dental crown materials, we are able to ensure your dental crown is indistinguishable from your other teeth.
