Crowns and Bridges
Often times, a tooth requires full coverage for protection. Teeth that are missing significant tooth structure due to decay or fracture, teeth with large restorations that are beginning to break down, teeth prone to fracture as a result of previous root canal therapy, or teeth that are showing signs of cracking or breaking may require a crown. Teeth that are compromised are prone to catastrophic fracture that could lead to tooth loss if a crown is not placed to protect the tooth.
Understanding Dental Crowns
Dental crowns have a variety of applications in dentistry. In some cases, crowns may be used to anchor a bridge to replace a missing tooth or to improve the cosmetic appearance of the tooth.
