Our team of dentists at Oak Family Dental are experts in protective and restorative dentistry. There are a number of reasons a dental crown is used in restoring your smile, including:
Fractured or Cracked Teeth
Dental crowns are ideal for teeth that have suffered cracks or fractures. These issues can cause pain and sensitivity and compromise the tooth’s structural integrity. same-day crowns provide immediate restoration, protecting the broken tooth from further damage and restoring its strength and functionality.
Weakened or Decayed Teeth
Teeth that have been weakened due to extensive decay or large fillings may require additional support to prevent further damage. same-day crowns provide a strong and durable protective layer, allowing you to chew and speak confidently while preserving the natural tooth structure.
Accidents or injuries can result in broken or chipped teeth, affecting your smile aesthetics and oral function. Crowns are designed to match the shape, color, and size of your natural teeth, providing a seamless restoration that blends seamlessly with your smile and restores your ability to bite and chew properly.
The affected tooth becomes more susceptible to fractures and damage after undergoing root canal therapy. Placing a crown over the treated tooth adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring its long-term stability and functionality.
In addition to addressing dental problems, crowns can be used for cosmetic enhancements. If you have a misshapen, discolored, or poorly positioned tooth, a same-day crown can improve its appearance and create a pleasant smile.
