What Is A Crown?
A crown fits over a tooth like a cap to restore it to its normal shape and size. Often used when a tooth has lost it's strength due to a larger cavity, fracture or excessive fillings that has led the tooth to lose much of its strength and integrity, a crown will protect a tooth from breaking or repair a tooth that’s already broken. A porcelain crown can also cover a dental implant, or cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
You’re missing a tooth. Why should you replace it with a crown?
If a missing tooth is one of the front teeth it definitely mars your smile, but even if the missing tooth doesn’t show there are many health reasons to restore your dental landscape. A missing tooth or teeth may cause your face to alter shape, causing an unsightly effect. You may be putting extra stress on your remaining teeth when you chew, which could cause you problems later in life.
A fixed partial denture “bridges” the gap left by missing teeth and can be made of gold, alloys or materials that match your existing teeth to create a seamless presentation.
