Tooth damage can occur suddenly from dental trauma or gradually due to age-related wear and tear or decay. If your tooth can be saved, your Burlington, Ontario dentist, Dr. Sam Gupta, may recommend a dental crown restoration to repair your tooth and restore its usefulness. Crowning a compromised tooth restores its original shape and appearance and keeps it from further breakage. At Mount Royal Dental, we offer dental crown treatment to our patients in Burlington and surrounding communities.
Crowns can be used for restorative or cosmetic purposes or both. In the case of a damaged or decayed tooth, Dr. Gupta will evaluate your condition to determine if a crown can restore your tooth to save it from extraction. Repairing a compromised tooth with a dental crown will preserve your smile, which is always preferred, if possible, over having a tooth pulled. Crowning your tooth saves you the expense of having it replaced later down the line.
Dr. Gupta may recommend a dental crown restoration for:
Cosmetically, crowns can be used to conceal chipped, stained or cracked teeth to improve your smile’s esthetics. We can also crown misshapen or oddly-sized teeth to make your smile appear more uniform. Dr. Gupta can have crowns custom-designed to look just like your natural teeth, matching their size, colour and shape seamlessly so no one can tell the difference.
Once dental crowns are cemented in place, they become a permanent part of your smile. With proper hygiene and care, they can last 15 or more years, offering protective and cosmetic benefits to compromised teeth. Crowning damaged teeth restores their beauty, health and function so you can keep your smile intact long-term.
