Dental crowns contribute to smile health and aesthetics in various ways. In fact, they are one of the most essential restorations in all of dentistry because they can save your smile.

If you need dental crowns in Mt. Pleasant, SC, we will discuss the reasons and provide alternative options when appropriate.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Damaged teeth are at risk for loss due to necessary extractions or crumbling and breakage. A dental crown is a hollow cover that protects the tooth from these bleak possibilities. The tooth crown will look identical to your untreated teeth.

Reasons You Might Need a Dental Crown

You might need a dental crown if you’ve undergone root canal therapy. This is because the infection associated with root canal therapy weakens tooth structure. The crown restores this structure. We also talk to you about dental crowns if you have a deeply decayed or damaged tooth at risk for loss.

Additionally, your prosthodontist in Mt Pleasant, SC can use dental crowns in cosmetic dentistry to conceal the following aesthetic issues:

  • Tooth discoloration and stains
  • Tooth chips and cracks
  • Abnormally shaped tooth
  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Short and worn teeth

Finally, dental crowns support tooth replacement. They crown or cap dental implant posts after healing, and two dental crowns anchor artificial teeth to healthy teeth.

Dental crowns are always custom-made to match your teeth. We also pay close attention to fit and function.
