Crowns are an effective way to restore your smile and enhance the strength of your teeth. At Grove City Dental we have skills and experience to provide an aesthetic and durable solution when you’ve lost a significant portion of your tooth through trauma or decay.
We use the most effective technologies to make sure that your crown looks great and fits perfectly in your mouth. The materials we use are of the highest quality, so they will last for years and appear indistinguishable from your other, natural teeth
What is a Crown?
A crown is a cover our doctors can put on a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. The purpose of a crown is to make the tooth stronger and/or improve the way it looks. When the crown is cemented into place, it will encompass the entire tooth that is still above the gum line.
A crown is often the recommended solution in cases when we want to preserve as much of the original tooth as we can (whereas dentures and bridges are used to replace teeth that are completely missing).
Why Might You Need a Crown?
You may need a crown if you:
- Have a cavity that is too large for a filling
- Have a toothed that is cracked, worn down or otherwise weakened
- Have had root canal treatment (the crown will protect the restored tooth)
- Want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile
Caring for Your Crowns
The tools and materials we use to create and place your dental crown means that they should not require and special care. Simply brush and floss like you always should and pay close attention to the area around the gums.
