What Is a Dental Crown and How Can It Benefit Your Smile?

Posted .

At Barton Oaks Dental Group, we understand that each patient has their own familiarity and level of understanding when it comes to dentistry, and not every patient is aware of each dental term or treatment. We are excited to talk about a popular dental treatment you have probably heard before but may not know much about, and that’s dental crowns.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that restores a damaged tooth to its original size, shape, and color, and is a popular dental treatment for patients of all ages. Dr. Joseph Neeley may recommend that you receive a dental crown for many reasons, such as to:

-Support a tooth that received a large filling but doesn’t have much tooth structure left
-Anchor a dental bridge
-Restore a broken or extremely worn-down tooth
-Cover a discolored or misshapen tooth and improve its appearance
-Improve the appearance of your smile
-Complete a dental implant
-Protect a weakened tooth from breaking
