Sometimes, in order to save your tooth, a dental crown may be recommended. A crown is a “cap” of sorts, made from a material such as porcelain or gold. It’s then placed over your reshaped, natural tooth to protect it from advanced wear.
The dentists at Marco Dental Care recommend crowns when a filling isn’t an option, due to conditions like:
- A large, failed filli
- Extensive tooth decay
- Been treated with a root canal
- Fractured or broken tooth
- Extensive wear
If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms, it’s important to visit our Marco Island office for prompt treatment, before your condition worsens.
Where Art and Science Meet
A dental crown completely covers your tooth, all the way to the gum line. It restores the function, feel and appearance of your natural tooth. Depending on your personal preferences and bite needs, our dentists offer a variety of dental crown options.
Most of our customized crowns are sculpted from luminous porcelain to blend into and enhance your smile. For areas more prone to wear (such as upper back teeth), we also offer high noble crowns. These are crowns made of gold or a gold alloy.
Dental Crown: Full Coverage Protection
Putting off a damaged tooth could lead to needing an extraction. If your discomfort makes chewing, biting or talking painful, we can help. With a custom-designed crown restoration, you can eat and smile as you once did, knowing that your remaining healthy tooth is protected from further harm.
When you’re ready to enjoy a healthier smile, give our Marco Island dentist a call. Financing options are available, making it easier to afford the dental care that you need.
