After getting your decayed, broken, or otherwise damaged teeth repaired, you’ll likely need dental crowns to complete the restoration. As your trusted dental team in Fort Collins, Colorado, we’ll let you know when dental crowns are recommended, and then complete the work from beginning to end. You can rest assured that our dental crowns will restore the natural look and feel of your teeth, allowing you to go about your day without worry about breakage or other issues.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are custom-made caps that fit over your repaired teeth to fully restore their strength and shape, including the full biting surface. The crowns mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth, fitting into your smile perfectly from day one.
Depending on their location in your mouth, we can make the dental crowns out of a variety of materials, including:
Beyond the material, there are different crown sizes to consider as well. Although full dental crowns are most commonly used, we can also fit ¾ crowns and onlays as needed to protect your fully repaired teeth.
In order to find the perfect fit for your needs, we’ll fully assess your dental health before providing our recommendations. We’ll always take your preferences into account while creating your treatment plan, so you get the desired results from each visit to our dental clinic.
When to Get Crowns for Your Teeth
As your dentist, we will only recommend dental crowns when they’re needed to complete your tooth restoration. In most cases, we fit crowns over teeth after performing root canals to save the natural structure.
Other times you may need a dental crown fitted to include:
After large cracks or decayed areas weaken the enamel
When wear and damage destroy the biting surface
Upon placing a large filling that leaves the tooth unstable
If you’re looking to replace missing teeth with dental bridges or implants, then you’ll likely get at least one crown as a part of that treatment process. For dental bridges, one to two crowns help hold the prosthetic teeth in place, while implants use crowns as the replacement tooth.
