Dental Crown Basics
Dental crowns are sometimes referred to as tooth jewelry or dental caps. Dental crowns are very versatile in cosmetic dentistry elements with capping damaged teeth or a tooth that has had a root canal as well as used in restorative dentistry areas, such as dental implants. They are a cap designed to cover your tooth or to be added to a titanium post in the case of dental implants. Porcelain crowns are designed to fit your smile aesthetically as well as functionally.
Do I Need a Crown after a Root Canal?
A root canal is done in an effort to save a severely decayed tooth and a dental crown is the final stage of this process. Because the root canal has left you with a tooth that is, in essence, a thin shell filled with composite bonding material, a dental crown is a necessity as soon as possible otherwise the biting force of chewing will quickly result in a tooth fracture and the efforts taken to save that tooth will have been for naught.
Dental crowns are designed to seamlessly match your teeth or in some cases, are used to cap discolored teeth, so can result in a brighter and whiter smile. Whether you need dental crowns due to injury, tooth decay, or are interested in them as part of your efforts to improve the look of your smile, our Austin cosmetic dentist can offer you a gorgeous dental crown.
