Dental Health & Tooth Restorations

Tooth restoration is not only to improve appearance it is primarily to improve dental health. If you chip a tooth, have a root canal or your tooth is seriously decayed a cap can help you to save part of the tooth. In other cases, when the tooth cannot be saved and an implant must be placed a crown also must be used.

What does a cap/crown have to do with good oral health?

  • When you lose a tooth to decay or trauma the rest of your teeth a shift causing gaps and other problems. A crown can act as a place holder and keep the teeth from shifting.
  • In some cases, to place a bridge the dentist may have to place a crown on "anchor teeth".
  • If your teeth are discolored or cracked, chipped and broken caps can be the best solution to improve the look and shape of your teeth.
