Your teeth are designed to last a lifetime, yet often they can become damaged or decayed, making them structurally weak or aesthetically unappealing. A dental crown can cover and protect a tooth giving strength to weakened teeth or offer a beautiful exterior for cosmetic repair. At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we offer beautifully designed dental crowns that look as good, if not better, than your natural teeth for a great smile.
Dental crowns are a general dentistry treatment that is often used to repair teeth that are severely chipped, damaged or cracked or have become weak. They can also be used to protect a tooth that has large or multiple fillings. One of the most common uses for crowns is to protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy; the dental crown covers what is left of the tooth after the nerve root has been removed, keeping the patient’s smile complete and functional. Without dental crowns, many teeth would need to be extracted, leaving holes in otherwise beautiful smiles.
