When a tooth is damaged by trauma or disease, it may need protection to continue to function. Cracked, broken or infected teeth often will require a general dentistry procedure to repair the form and function of the tooth. Dental crowns encapsulate the tooth and create a new exterior tooth structure. At Roswell Complete Dentistry, we provide beautiful and durable dental crowns for restoring damaged teeth at our clinic in Roswell, GA.
Dental crowns have been made from many materials over the last several decades, including silver, gold, ceramic and porcelain. At Roswell Complete Dentistry, we recommend porcelain crowns for our patients. Porcelain crowns can be color-matched to your other teeth to create a natural-appearing tooth. The material is very durable, and it can last for up to 15 years or longer with good oral care. Plus, porcelain retains its white color even better than natural tooth enamel.
Dental crowns are designed to fit over the damaged tooth. Some of the tooth material is removed to make room for the crown. A mold is made of the tooth, and a crown is created in our dental lab from quality porcelain. We then bond the crown to the tooth for a lasting restoration.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Trauma is a common reason a tooth may need a dental crown. If you crack or break a tooth, it may not be repairable with fillings, onlays, inlays or bonding. A dental crown can save the tooth and protect it from further damage, decay or infection after tooth trauma.
Severe decay and infection can cause extensive tooth damage. If you need extensive decay removed or a root canal for an infected tooth, a dental crown may be recommended after your treatment. This can protect the weakened tooth and provide the level of function you need for chewing and bite alignment.
If you have a broken or diseased tooth that has been extensively damaged, a dental crown may be the solution for restoration.
