Why do I need a dental crown? I just want a filling.
Our skilled dentist in the Tumwater, WA area sometimes recommends a dental crown instead of a filling if your tooth is weak or vulnerable to breakage.
Past root canals and large cavities weaken your tooth’s structure. In some cases, a filling is simply not strong enough to keep your tooth viable. In addition, some types of dental trauma or prolonged infections can weaken your tooth, which makes it vulnerable to chipping and infection.
Dental crown placement at Tranquility Dental Wellness is painless and noninvasive.
Benefits of placing a dental crown
- Hiding discoloration
- Concealing damage
- Covering small chips
- Closing small gaps
- Providing a seamless smile
Following tooth preparation, a dental crown is placed over your tooth. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover designed to match your smile and keep your tooth strong and viable. With proper care, this crown can last for a long time, too.
