Tooth Crown - Is This Treatment for You?



A tooth crown is a restoration for your damaged or cracked tooth. It is meant to cover and protect the remaining part of your problem tooth. It is also called cap by some dentists. Crowns or caps help strengthen your existing teeth, making it possible for them to function like your original healthy teeth again. There are certain cases when caps are recommended, while there are situations where other dental solutions would work better.

There are teeth that may have been decaying too much for too long that the remaining structure is not enough for them to have fillings or inlays. In some cases, fractured teeth may also be excessive that bonding also wouldn't be enough.



But there are times that you may need a crown in addition to another dental treatment. You may need to have a cap on top of the filling that was placed to cover the substantial cavity of your damaged tooth. This is to reinforce the protection of your remaining natural tooth.

If you've lost a whole tooth, the dentist usually has to place a titanium root implant where your lost tooth was. To complete the restoration procedure, he has to put a tooth crown on the abutment that was planted. It now replaces your missing tooth. Also, crowns are generally suggested to strengthen your teeth after you've had a root canal treatment.

But before deciding on having crowns placed on your teeth, you need to check carefully with your dentist if this is what you really need. During your initial consultation, let the dentist know your concerns about your teeth so he can really know which solution would be best for you. You might need another procedure that's less invasive, cheaper, and faster. You might not know it, but maybe what you need to have are veneers or fillings alone. As mentioned earlier, a tooth crown is meant to strengthen the existing tooth. If the remaining tooth is still strong enough, there would be no need for a cap or crown.

When done properly on your teeth and maintained well, crowns can last even for up to 15 years. But you need to make sure that you go to an expert so they can be done accurately. It is also very important that you care for them like your natural teeth. Perform proper oral hygiene everyday and avoid habits that can easily damage your teeth.
