Dental Crown and Other Replacement

A dental crown or a tooth cap is a type of dental restoration that fixes multiple teeth issues. It’s quite accurate at resembling a real tooth in size, shape, and appearance. Most crown materials are durable and could sustain from the chewing forces in the mouth. It may last up to 15 years or more with proper maintenance.

The common reasons why Oshawa dentist would recommend for dental caps may include the following:

  • The tooth needs protection from being severely damaged that’s probably caused by trauma, decay or simply being worn down without proper care.
  • There’s a need for support for a tooth with most of its structure already replaced by large fillings.   
  • To hold or support a dental bridge.
  • A dental crown is also needed to cover up a badly discolored tooth that’s beyond any cosmetic treatment.
  • To place on top of a dental implant as a replacement for a lost tooth.  

There are many helpful ways that come up from using tooth caps. It doesn’t only restore functions but as well as aesthetics. Its performance might also depend on which type of crown material is used.
