What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a custom-crafted cap that’s made to fit over your natural tooth to restore its shape, size, and function. It also helps prevent further damage by encasing the entire visible portion of your tooth and shielding it from harmful oral bacteria. They’re typically made from natural-looking dental porcelain that is able to replicate your tooth’s enamel by reflecting light; however, they can also be made from metals, resin, and ceramic.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Dental crowns can be helpful in a number of situations, but typically, patients get them to repair a decaying tooth that’s vulnerable to additional damage. Some other reasons you may need a crown is to:

  • Protect a weak or damaged tooth.
  • Keep a broken or fractured tooth from breaking apart by holding it together.
  • Restore a worn-down tooth.
  • Cover and restore the strength of a tooth with a large filling.
  • Cover severely discolored or misshapen teeth.
  • Be retained by an implant to replace a missing tooth.
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal therapy.

Drs. Nancy Dysinger, Kimberli Crates Best, and Emily Crates Heintzelman are all passionate about providing patients with preventive treatments that keep their natural teeth healthy and happy, which is why they offer restorative solutions that are made from the highest quality of materials.

What is a Dental Bridge?

If you’re suffering from a missing tooth, one of our dentists may recommend closing the gap and replacing it with a dental bridge. This is a replacement tooth, typically crafted out of natural-looking materials such as porcelain, that’s held in place by two crowns. Each crown is placed over your existing teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, with the replacements in between them.

Who is a Good Candidate?

When you’re missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, it can impact your day-to-day life and have negative effects on your oral health. That’s why it’s vital to replace it. A bridge can address those issues by completing your grin, restoring your ability to chew and speak, and maintaining the alignment of your existing teeth. So, if you’re facing tooth-loss and would like a cost-effective and long-lasting solution, one of our dentists may recommend a bridge.

At McComb Family Dental, we’re passionate about providing our patients with quality treatments that restore their overall wellbeing and reduce their risk of developing oral health problems down the road. That’s why we offer a wide variety of restorative dental solutions, so you can get the option that fits best with your lifestyle.
