Why Should You Get a Crown?
When it comes to your smile, the greatest concern that Dr. Chen and our team have is for your overall health. We will spend the time necessary to help you understand your options and may even suggest an option that you may not have considered. Also sometimes called a “cap,” a crown completely covers your tooth all the way down to the gumline to protect and preserve it. Dr. Chen will remove the tooth enamel and take an impression of your tooth in order to create a crown that will fit your smile perfectly.
Crowns are extremely versatile and can be used to address not just restorative problems but also cosmetic issues and can help preserve the health of your smile. You may be surprised at the number of uses for a dental crown, and they may include:
- Protecting a tooth that has had a root canal treatment
- Supporting a severely damaged tooth or a tooth with a very large filling
- Protecting a dental implant
- Holding a dental bridge in place
- Improving the appearance of a severely discolored tooth
