SIGN YOU MAY NEED A DENTAL CROWN

By: Smileway Dental

Crown is a permanent prosthetics or caps that designed to improve the shape, alignment or overall appearances of the tooth. Crown also able to strengthen a damaged tooth. Here’s a closer look at some of the top signs a crown may be necessary. 

• Improve the appearance of a tooth

Tooth that are too small, damaged, and discoloration can be cover with crown to improve the appearance of the tooth. A crown can also be used for disguise an old or unattractive filling.

• Tooth Discolouration

Tooth discolouration is another sign that you need a dental crown. Discolouration can be result of severe tooth decay. If your tooth appears grey, it could be dead and would need to be removed. But if your tooth has only slight discoloration or staining, a filling or dental crown can help save the tooth from further damage and can cover up the discoloration to restore the natural colour of your tooth.

• Root canal treatment

Root canal treated tooth is essentially a dead tooth. So, over time, the tooth will lose some of its strength and have an increased chance of fracturing. Therefore, it is generally recommended all root canal treated be crown to provide long-term protection for the underlying tooth.

• Large fillings

If a large portion of your tooth requires a filling, going with a crown might be the better option. This is because crowns tend to give full-tooth protection, rather than just partial tooth protection like a filling.

• Decayed teeth

Decayed teeth can lead to many problems, including gum disease. If you are experiencing tooth decay, your dentist may recommend using a dental crown instead of a filling to help solve the problem.
