Dental Crowns: Less Obvious Reasons You May Need One

As you will continue to learn, there are many, many reasons you may require a dental crown. Some are extremely apparent (you break a tooth). Others, however, are not quite so clear. As you accumulate facts, you will begin to have a better ability to make sense of treatment options and how they may help repair your smile. Have you ever considered the fact that a crown might be used primarily to help your smile look better? Consider some instances in which crowns may benefit you that you might not have thought about before!

To Finish Your Root Canal Treatment

If you don’t know much about root canal treatment, then you probably don’t realize this type of restorative treatment usually ends with us placing a dental crown over the tissue that remains of your tooth. Why is this the final step? Well, keep in mind that we will remove the internal tissue from your tooth (the pulp) through a hole that we carefully create. We will then seal and fill your tooth. The goal is for your tooth to become functional, strong, and sealed, as we mentioned, to keep bacteria out. A crown will allow us to accomplish all of these goals!

When Cosmetic Care Can’t Quite Help

Sometimes, an esthetic problem occurs that is very difficult to address with cosmetic care. If veneers cannot quite camouflage an issue like severe discoloration, problems with the surface texture of your tooth, etc., then it may be time to consider a dental crown. Since we offer cosmetically sound crowns through the use of beautiful, natural-looking materials, we can absolutely transform the appearance of a tooth with placement.
