Dental Crowns | Tyngsboro Dentist

A dental crown is a dental restoration that is used to replace an old filling or broken tooth to improve the function of your teeth.

Dental crowns are the solution to enhancing and improving your oral hygiene. If you are suffering for cracked or chipped teeth, there is a very high possibility that you need to receive dental crowns.

Two main signals that indicate an individual needs a dental crown:

  • Cracks in the teeth are main indicators that one needs a dental crown. Deep cracks in teeth allow for plaque and bacteria to build up inside the tooth which can lead to infection and permanent tooth loss.
  • Chipped tooth- Chips are a major sign of weak and decayed teeth that should be examine immediately. If the chip was not caused by some kind of accident, the chip is most likely due to some damage that can only be fixed with a dental crown.

A Dental Crown is a cap placed over a tooth to restore its strength and appearance. Dental Crowns have several uses such as to protect a weak or broken tooth. Also, Dental Crowns are used to cover a large filling or help support a dental bridge.
