CROWNS

Crowns
GENERAL & COSMETIC DENTISTRY IN SUMMERVILLE, SC
A dental crown completely caps a natural tooth or dental implant, using a dental cement to stay in place. They are both functional and aesthetic, being made from a variety of materials. Permanent crowns are made from a variety of materials, ranging from stainless steel, alloy, porcelain, resin, or ceramic. This option is typically costly, but is the best long term answer. 
Family Dentistry Summerville, SC
Here are some situations where a dental crown would be needed:

1) Protecting a weak tooth from decay or breaking

2) Restoring an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been worn down

3) Covering and supporting a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of natural tooth left

4) Holding a dental bridge in place

5) Covering misshapen or discolored teeth

6) Making a cosmetic modification
Cosmetic Dentist Summerville, SC
Crowns do not require special care. However, remember that basic dental care is still required for the natural tooth beneath. The cap does not fully protect it from decay or gum disease. Brush twice a day and floss daily for best practices. For more information, contact your cosmetic dentist in Summerville, SC!
