If you have a chomper that needs a cap, a dental crown is the way to do it: dental crowns, which are prosthetic dental apparatuses, cover pearly whites for restorative purposes. Crowns are often used when a cavity threatens the health of a tooth, but there are other reasons why our dentist might endorse them. Here are a few of them:
-We can use a crown as an anchor when attaching an oral bridge.
-Using oral crowns is regularly required when installing dental implants.
-Crowns can be advantageous when replacing fillings.
-Protecting (or repairing) your teeth from splitting may require oral crowns.
-Crowns may enhance the look of your pearly whites.
-We may be able to protect sensitive or uncovered chompers with dental crowns.
To crown your tooth or pearly whites, Dr. Amit B. Patel will make an impression of your chompers to form a mold from. The mold will be utilized to develop the dental crown, and (after some preparation) we will cap your tooth with the crown.
