CROWNS

 

dental_crowns.jpgWhy a Crown?

When a tooth is heavily broken down, stress fractured, root filled then it will need a crown placed on it. Crowns are designed to give a full coverage to the tooth very much like a thimble covers your finger. The function of the crown is to place an even load over and down the tooth. Teeth naturally do flex and this causes them to stress fracture. If the fracture is not controlled then the tooth may break below the gum level and have to be extracted or root filled. We crown teeth to try to prevent this from happening and to balance out the load over the teeth.
 
Crowns can also be placed selectively for cosmetic reasons but you do have to think very carefully about this, because once teeth are cut you can never go back

 

What is a Crown and why a Crown?

When a tooth is heavily broken down, stress fractured, root filled then it will need a crown placed on it. Crowns are designed to give a full coverage to the tooth very much like a thimble covers your finger

1. Do you have heavily filled teeth
2. Do  your teeth continually break and need fixing?
3. Have you had mutiple root canals? 
 
Reason for fixing teeth with crowns is to strengthen the teeth and prevent further damage
1. Can be done in two visits
2. Prevents continual stress on the nerve and so minimizes root canal problems
3. Gives you good aesthetics or firm posterior support so stops you continually breaking teeth
