What is a dental crown?

Dr. Scott Bridges may recommend a dental crown if your tooth is broken or decayed.

You may have heard of dental crowns, but understanding exactly how it helps may not be immediately apparent. 

As with all dental treatments, we are always more than happy to sit down with our patients to go over each part of a dental procedure. Bring a list of questions if you want!

Understanding Dental Crowns

A dental crown covers all sides of your tooth down to the gum line. If your tooth has a crack or damage to its structure, the dental crown keeps the entire tooth protected and stabilized, allowing patients to enjoy eating and biting down without fear of damaging their tooth.

Dental crowns mimic tooth enamel's natural translucency, so no one will ever know you have had restorative work done. Some patients may even be interested in dental crowns to cover stained or misshapen teeth. 

Dental crowns are often used alongside other dental procedures, like dental bridges, root canals, or dental implants. They are truly versatile!

Dental Crowns Stabilize Weakened Teeth

If you want to restore the crowning glory that is your smile, a dental crown can restore it to its normal shape, size, and shade. 

A damaged tooth is never the end of the world; we can work with it. Together, we can keep your teeth healthy and safe without worrying about unnecessary dental extractions. 

Let Us Know if You Are Interested

During your dental crown appointment with Dr. Bridges, we will go over your oral health and needs to determine if this is the right procedure for you.
