If you have a cracked or decayed tooth, our dentist may recommend a dental crown to restore and protect it from further damage. Crowns are specially designed to restore the shape, function, strength and appearance of your tooth. They are custom made to match your natural teeth, as well. Call Parkside Dental Care at (334) 271-9916 to schedule your consultation with Dr. David Loveless and learn more about dental crowns in Montgomery, Alabama.
A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of dental purposes. One of the most common reasons we use a dental crown is to restore a tooth that has been significantly damaged or decayed. Starting at the gumline, the crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crown materials include gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain crowns are most popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentist will be happy to help determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.
If a filling will not provide a successful restoration because it is too badly damaged or decayed, your smile may benefit from a crown. This dental treatment can also be used for a variety of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
- Protection of a tooth following root canal treatment
- To anchor and attach a dental bridge
- Cover and complete a dental implant
- Enhances the look of your smile
- Improves a the shape of a tooth
- Strengthens a tooth that is fractured or weak
- Supports a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
