Royal Oak and Birmingham, MI
Do you have a gap in your smile or a tooth or teeth that have some problems? Maybe your tooth is misshapen, too small, has a large cavity or a lot of dental work that has made it more susceptible to getting a cavity. Or perhaps your tooth is cracked, chipped or broken. You may have a toothache and not sure what to do.
At Hartrick Dentistry, Dr. Hartrick is happy to help you with all your dental issues and we recommend dental crowns for many of those dental issues.
What are Dental Crowns?
A tooth crown is a crown for teeth made from porcelain or composite resin. Though porcelain sounds fragile and like it would not stand up to the wear and tear of normal eating, porcelain dental crowns are very sturdy and durable. A tooth crown is a cap for teeth and is placed over your original tooth or as a restoration for dental implants.
Why are Dental Crowns an advantageous choice?
- Dental crowns are custom fit for your mouth. The dentist will make an impression for your teeth and then send it to the lab. A tooth crown will be made to fit into your smile.
- A cap for teeth tooth crown is custom matched to your smile so you can laugh and smile and get your photo taken with confidence. The cap for teeth will not look like the odd tooth out or a false tooth.
- A tooth crown can be used to fix a myriad of dental issues, such as a broken, chipped, cracked, misshapen or discolored tooth or a tooth that has a large cavity or a lot of dental work and is therefore more susceptible to a cavity.
- Dental crowns can be used to anchor a dental bridge or, with dental implants, dentures.
- A cap for teeth can repair teeth that are damaged from aging or grinding of teeth or an improper bite pattern.
