One of the most frequently used forms of restorative dentistry is dental crowns. They are remarkably effective at protecting a tooth damaged by decay, injury or disease, and our patients at Wheatfield Family Dentistry in North Tonawanda, NY, will receive a dental crown for such issues as:
- Decayed teeth not treatable with a traditional filling
- Teeth that have been fractured or broken and are unable to be fixed with bonding
- Removal of old amalgam fillings
- The completion of a root canal treatment
- Deeply stained teeth unable to be whitened
- The completion of a dental implant
As your preferred dentist in North Tonawanda, we will offer dental crowns when a tooth needs restoration, and it is a process that can be done in just two office visits. Dental crowns are not crowns in the classic sense but more like caps. They are made of durable materials and fit over a restored tooth and enable you to continue or begin using that tooth in the same way as a natural tooth, but without any pain or discomfort. Dental crowns are strong enough to withstand regular wear and tear, much like natural teeth, and even have the appearance of a natural tooth.
When Will a Dental Crowns Specialist Recommend Treatment?
Our restorative dentistry options include dental crowns, and that term restorative is the key. The use of dental crowns means that a tooth has an issue that is reducing its functionality. The crown is recommended as a primary means of restoring it to full use. It is made from impressions taken of your mouth and is strongly bonded to the tooth, enabling you to use it for many years afterward.
