Dental crowns are placed over a tooth to protect it against damage or decay. Burke Family Dentist Dr. Pamela Marzban may recommend dental crowns to shield teeth that have been:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken
- Weakened by severe decay
- Compromised following infection removal with a root canal
Crowns are also used to secure dental bridges and provide seamless restorations for dental implants.
Dr. Marzban offers different types of dental crowns, but each is sized, shaped, and colored to complement your smile. This enables your dental crowns to produce both aesthetic and functional benefits. The type of dental crown used in your treatment will depend on factors including the tooth’s location and function, along with how significant the damage. This is something that can be discussed in greater detail during your next appointment.
Dental crowns are easy to care for and should not require any adjustments to your daily oral health routine. Simply brushing and flossing like normal is generally enough to keep crowns looking and feeling like new for years to come.
