Dental Crowns An Overview
Dr. Lotardo may recommend the use of a dental crown for a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry purposes. A dental crown covers the entire tooth surface like a cap, adding strength, aesthetics and lasting function. Dental crowns can be made from several types of materials, all of which have enjoyed advances in recent years and can provide a lasting result.
Dr. Sal Lotardo will recommend the most appropriate type of dental crown for your dental health and cosmetic needs. In most cases, a porcelain or ceramic crown is suggested for a durable, aesthetic result. Dental crowns can be used to treat:
- Damaged teeth: chipped or cracked teeth
- Severely decayed tooth
- Discolored teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- After a root canal to strengthen a tooth
- To strengthen anchor teeth for a dental bridge or other appliance
