Dental Crowns for Damaged Teeth and Post-Operative Needs

CROWN

What is the Use of a Dental Crown

A dental crown is strongly recommended for patients who have undergone a root canal, because it restores function to the treated tooth as well as restoring its original look. Crowns are recommended in the following situations:

  • To repair a broken tooth or to cover a series of teeth, which have a considerable series of fillings
  • To correct the alignment, shape or colour of a tooth
  • To correct the contact between teeth



To successfully install a crown, a sufficient amount of your natural tooth must remain to hold the crown in place. If necessary, your dentist may perform a root canal to install a dental post to help hold it in place.

Protect Your Teeth

Do you have a damaged tooth that’s bothering you? Has someone suggested you should have a root canal or get a filling? If the answer is yes, a dental crown may be the solution for you. Here are some details that can help you.


What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a restoration that is placed on a tooth that needs some protection. When a tooth is too damaged and needs to be repaired with a filling, the dentist must cover the tooth with a dental crown to prevent further damage. Once in place, the crown operates as a protective barrier. The fillings, onlays, and other dental services may sound similar, but they cover and protect only a small part of the tooth in question, leaving the rest of the tooth vulnerable to further deterioration. A dental crown, however, completely covers the tooth and acts as an exterior shell.

How Long Will a Crown Stay in Place?

The longevity of a crown depends on the following factors:

  • The severity of the damage to the tooth
  • The health and quality of the bone and gums
  • The material used to make the crown


The longevity of the crown also depends on the patient’s aesthetic

requirements.
