Crowns, sometimes referred to as “caps,” are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. If you are experiencing pain or sensitivity when biting or chewing, it is possible that you may have a cracked tooth and require a crown.
Decayed parts of a tooth can often be treated with a filling, but sometimes, a tooth may decay or crack beyond what a filling can repair. If this is the case, a crown may be the first step in saving the tooth, allowing you to keep most of your natural tooth structure. The objective of a crown is to preserve and protect your tooth for as long as possible, holding together the remaining tooth structure and preventing further decay. At Real Life Dental, we use ceramic or metal-free crowns to provide a longer-lasting, more natural-looking tooth structure that will help you continue to feel confident in your smile.
