Dental crowns are effectively used in many dental procedures to restore function and appearance. They provide a durable solution to many restorative and cosmetic concerns. Restorative dental procedures are provided when a tooth has been lost or damaged by decay or trauma. These treatments are designed to restore the health, function, and appearance of teeth. Cosmetic treatments provide visual improvements to teeth, and are usually not considered medically necessary. These services may involve more out-of-pocket costs for patients who are using dental insurance, or may not be covered at all.
To place a dental crown, the dentist will need to prepare the tooth. For a restorative procedure this involves removing damaged areas of the tooth which could cause problems for the patient in the future, or to allow proper placement of the crown. A bridge is one restoration that will require healthy teeth to be adjusted to accept crowns as part of the patient’s bridge. For cosmetic purposes, the dentist will reduce the tooth as necessary to allow the crown to be placed.
Restorative applications for a crown include:
Some of these applications actually overlap and fill both restorative and cosmetic purposes. Regardless of the way one may be used, a crown provides a sturdy, natural-looking covering for a tooth. It is designed and customized for the patient to blend in and enhance oral health and function.
