Am I a candidate for dental crowns?

Dental Crowns Tacoma WAIf you have a damaged tooth or a large filling that is starting to fail, you might need a dental crown. Dental crowns are a common restoration that can restore the strength, function, and appearance of a damaged tooth. To find out more about dental crowns, contact our Tacoma, WA practice Tranquility Dental Wellness.

Why Crowns Might Be Needed

Dental crowns are used to treat a wide variety of dental issues, including the following:

  • To restore a tooth that has been weakened by a large dental filling. When the filling begins to fail, often too much of the tooth structure has been removed to replace it, so a dental crown is the best way to restore a tooth.
  • After root canal therapy, the tooth structure left behind tends to be brittle because there is no longer living tissue in the tooth root. A dental crown will restore the form and function of the tooth.
  • Dental crowns are placed atop dental implants to restore missing teeth.
  • In cases of severe dental decay, a dental crown might be used to restore the tooth rather than a filling.
  • Dental crowns are used cosmetically to cover up a tooth that might be misshapen or damaged, restoring the look and function of the smile.
