What is a dental crown?

Dental Crowns Bridgeton MOA dental crown, sometimes known as a “cap,” is a special type of restoration that is designed to fit over, protect, and support a damaged tooth. Today’s crowns are typically made of porcelain or ceramic and can be shaded and designed to look virtually identical to a natural tooth. Once a crown has been placed, in fact, it’s highly unlikely that anyone will be able to tell your capped tooth apart from your other teeth.

The Difference At Our Bridgeton Dental Office

Our office prefers to practice conservative, non-invasive dentistry whenever possible. Often, preserving your natural tooth is preferable to removing it and replacing it (although sometimes extraction is an appropriate solution). We will always discuss all your options with you so that you understand our recommendations. Capping or crowning a tooth does require shaping of the natural tooth structure in order to allow the crown to fit properly and not create pressure on your other teeth, but it is still a less invasive procedure than an extraction.

Once a crown has been placed, it can be cared for just like a natural tooth. Although the crown cannot decay, the tooth beneath it may without proper dental care. Crowns also do not protect against periodontal disease so good home care is a must.
