At the practice of Innovative Dental By Dr. A, our team is dedicated to assisting men, women, and children in maintaining beautiful, healthy smiles. However, there are situations in which restorative treatments are needed. If patients are experiencing problems with a tooth, they may need to talk to their Philadelphia-based dentist about the advantages of using a dental crown.
A dental crown is sometimes referred to as a “cap.” It is made of porcelain, and fabricated to match the color, shape, size, and appearance of the remaining teeth. Dr. A ensures his quality dental crowns blend in with the smile so patients do not have noticeable repairs.
Dental crowns are used in many situations:
For some patients, a dental crown is placed over a tooth that is weak. This tooth may be weakened due to a large cavity that has affected the structure of the tooth. A tooth may also be weak after root canal therapy. If a tooth has been injured, it may be cracked or chipped and can benefit from the placement of this restoration as well.
Dental crowns may also be used over dental implants to act as a false tooth. Patients who have lost a single tooth within the smile may have an implant placed to act as a tooth root. This is restored with a dental crown to give the appearance and function of a natural tooth. Dental implants are often chosen over alternative solutions including partial dentures and dental bridges.
Dr. A and the team at Innovative Dental By Dr. A understand that there are times when the unexpected occurs and patients need treatment to restore their smiles. We recommend calling our practice for appropriate services. Contact the staff today at (215) 624-1935 to schedule a consultation appointment and evaluation to determine if dental crowns or other restorations are right for you!
