Do you have teeth that need to be restored, for either functional or cosmetic reasons? If so, you may be a good candidate for dental crowns. Dental crowns are used for several different reasons, including restoring damaged teeth. If you would like to meet with our Randolph dentist at our dental practice, Dr. Edward J. Smith, to see if dental crowns will solve your cosmetic tooth problem, simply make an appointment to see our top-notch Randolph dentist, Dr. Edward J. Smith.
Dental crowns are used for many different reasons. They are used as the top “tooth” portion of dental implants. They are also used to restore teeth after root canal procedures, or to restore teeth that are damaged for other reasons. For example, if a tooth already has several fillings in it, our dentist may recommend that you get a dental crown to keep the tooth from cracking and getting serious infection problems. Dental crowns are also used to restore some teeth that need purely cosmetic fixes. A dental crown covers the tooth on all four sides and will serve to strengthen the tooth as well as improve its looks. A dental crown is made to color-match the adjacent teeth so no one will ever know that you have a dental crown in your mouth. Our cosmetic Randolph dentist will be happy to meet with you and let you know what can be done to fix your particular tooth problem.
Dental crowns are also commonly referred to as dental caps. If your tooth becomes decayed, and there is so much decay that a large part of the tooth needs to be removed during treatment, this may also be a case when a dental crown will be needed to protect the remaining tooth. Dental crowns are also used to attach bridges, which are used to restore missing teeth. Dental crowns can be made of several different materials including porcelain or ceramics. If you have a tooth that needs to be fixed for purely cosmetic reasons, our Randolph dentist may find that you can be successfully treated using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a more cost-effective solution, as they only cover the front portion of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are very thin, however they are permanently attached to your teeth and are meant to last for many years. Our cosmetic dentist will be able to let you know which treatment option will work best for you, once he has a chance to examine your particular tooth situation.
