Dental crowns are recommended for a number of reasons – mainly related to tooth restoration. If a tooth has become badly fractured, damaged, or significantly decayed, our dentists may recommend a custom dental crown be fitted over the tooth. In most cases, dental crowns are recommended when a tooth is damaged to the point that a filling will not restore it successfully. Made from porcelain, a dental crown is custom fitted to your smile and caps the entire tooth from the gum up.
At Midlothian Dental Arts, our dentists are experienced in the art of creating beautiful, comfortable smiles with dental crowns. They can be used for restorative or aesthetic reasons, including:
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Improving a misshapen tooth
- Protecting a damaged or decayed tooth
- Anchoring a dental bridge
- Supporting a large filling
- Strengthening a fractured or weakened tooth
- Covering a dental implant
