How are dental crowns used?

Dental crowns are a vital part of modern dentistry because they have multiple uses and are always dependable.

A dental crown fits over your tooth, and it is designed to look like neighboring teeth.

Your dentist in Pikesville, MD relies on quality dental crowns to restore smiles and so much more!

Let’s look at how dentists use dental crowns to enhance and strengthen teeth.

Common Uses for Dental Crowns in Pikesville

If you’ve had a root canal or tooth trauma, your dentist may have used a tooth crown to stabilize that tooth following treatment. The tooth crown creates a cushion between your bite and your weak tooth so that you can bite down without fear of fracture.

We also use dental crowns to conceal tooth flaws like stubborn stains, chips, small gaps, and more.

And when it comes to restoring teeth, a dental crown works as your new tooth following dental implant placement. The crown caps your implant and looks like a natural tooth.

Dental crowns also secure a dental bridge to neighboring teeth to complete your smile when teeth are missing.
