The Benefits Of Having A Crown

When your teeth are weak and prey to breaking or cracking there are restorative treatments available to stop the problems getting any worse. If you have a tooth which is weakened, and prone to breaking or infection it may be worth having a dental crown. Your dentist will tell you if they believe a crown would benefit you and explain the process to you.A crown is a restorative treatment for damaged or weak back teeth. It is normally made from porcelain and are like caps fitted over the entire tooth to protect it and shield it from further damage. Crown are also used when having a dental bridge. The crowns are attached either side of the false tooth. They are them attached to the healthy teeth either side of the missing teeth to hold it in place. Crown treatment can stop further complications occurring. If you tooth is damaged and weak it can get infected, large parts could break off and you could end up needing an extraction. A crown will give your weak tooth the ability to function like a strong durable normal molar, leaving your bite intact. This means that you will be able to eat whatever hard foods you choose again, without worrying about how it will affect your tooth. As crowns are made from porcelain we can make sure that it blends in with the colour of the rest of your teeth. During the process we would prepare the tooth ready for the crown, fit the crown in place and shape it ready for everyday wear and tear.
