There are different situations and factors that can lead to the need for a dental crown. At Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta, we offer high-quality yet attractive crowns to protect your smile. But not everyone needs a crown (or “cap”) so it’s important to assess your tooth beforehand to see if a crown is necessary.
3 Benefits of A Dental Crown
A dental crown is a porcelain cover that is custom-made in the shape of your tooth. It is cemented onto your existing tooth structure, and you may need one for different reasons. If you have any of the following 3 issues, it would be good to make an appointment to see our Atlanta dentist about crown treatment:
- If you have a decayed, cracked, or damaged tooth, a crown would prevent any further damage to the tooth from occurring.
- If you’ve had a root canal on a tooth, the tooth tends to be weaker and could possibly crack or fracture. A crown will protect the remaining tooth structure and help you avoid a possible future extraction.
- A crown can also be used for cosmetic reasons. If you have a tooth that is anatomically different from the rest, a crown can be a possible solution when veneers are not appropriate. The crown can be made similar to the other teeth to help enhance your smile.
A crown can restore your smile’s aesthetics while as well as restore the function of your natural teeth. Schedule an appointment with Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta today to find out if a custom dental crown is right for you.
