Teeth are susceptible to disease, decay, and damage. When this happens, it is common for your damaged tooth or teeth to need restorative treatment. Restorative dental treatments help to support and cover damaged teeth while at the same time protecting them from further damage and decay.
Your teeth are exposed to a great deal of potential damage and injury each day—even when they are simply being used as they were intended. That’s why restorative dentistry exists: to help fix or protect teeth that are in need.
When you have a tooth in need of protection, come see us for a restorative dental crown placement.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns, or dental caps as they are also known, are dental restorative devices that cover or go over the top of a damaged tooth crown; the tooth crown is the visible white part of the tooth that we see above the gum line.
Benefits of Dental Crowns with Lakeview Pointe Dentistry
Dental crowns serve to protect weak teeth that could be susceptible to decay, or hold teeth together that are cracked, broken, or otherwise damaged. They are bonded to the tooth they will protect through the use of dental cement.
A permanent dental crown that looks beautiful and blends in naturally with your smile takes time and expertise to create. That is why when you make an appointment to come see us at Lakeview Pointe Dentistry for a crown placement, we’ll provide you with a same-day temporary crown that you will wear until your permanent crown has been created and is ready to be set.
When Would I Need a Dental Crown?
Your first step should be to schedule an appointment with us to get your teeth looked at. Once we check out your teeth, we’ll be able to determine if you are in need of any dental crowns. As mentioned above, dental crowns are a great restorative option if you have a tooth that has been badly damaged by serious cavities, other forms of decay, or cracking and breaking.
