A dental crown is a cosmetic dentistry service that involves a covering that sits over the top of the tooth, creating a strong tooth surface with the ability to cover, protect, and strengthen your tooth and improve your oral health. At Burnhamthorpe Dental in Etobicoke, we use crowns crowns in many different scenarios and often it allows us to save a tooth rather than turning to implants.
Dental Crowns can help with...
Large fillings that have broken down or decayed may need a crown to save the tooth.
A cracked tooth may need a crown to hold it together. Be careful not to wait too long as an untreated cracked tooth can become sensitive or eventually break.
Senstive Teeth caused by "wear" or from receded gums may require crowns to seal and protect teeth from temperature sensitivity.
Broken teeth may be too weak to hold a filling. A crown will hold the tooth together and prevent it from breaking again. If the fracture is too deep, Root Canal Therapy may be required before the tooth is crowned.
A tooth that has undergone Root Canal Therapy will need a crown to properly seal and protect the tooth.
A dental crown may be the solution to saving your tooth and can help with your overall oral health. At our Etobicoke dental office we can evaluate your needs depending on your oral health and the condition of your teeth.
