Crowns for Damaged, Decayed or Broken Teeth

Our teeth can become damaged by physical trauma, lack of hygiene and even our overall physical health. When a tooth becomes too damaged or decayed to be restored by fillings, crowns are usually prescribed.

Unlike veneers, which only cover the visible portion of a tooth, crowns are used to cover (or, in some instances, replace) an entire tooth. Most people who have had root canals will need a crown for the affected tooth. Others who may need crowns are people who have badly chipped or broken teeth due to physical trauma, or people who have neglected their dental hygiene to the point where they are losing their teeth.

Fortunately, crowns can greatly improve the health and appearance of a person's smile - but they do require care and upkeep. We'll go over everything you need to know about your dental crowns, but it is up to you to continue with proper care.
