If you have a tooth, or teeth, that have been seriously damaged by decay or injury, our dentist may recommend a dental crown for you. A dental crown, also commonly referred to as a cap, is designed to fuse with the tooth and cover any flaws of imperfections. After a crown is attached, it will cover the entire tooth starting at the gum line to restore your smile to its ideal functionality and appearance. If you are suffering from any of the following imperfections, Dr. Thomas E. Wold may suggest a dental crown to restore your smile to its ideal condition:
- A fractured or badly weakened tooth
- A severely stained, discolored, or darkened tooth
- A tooth that has had root canal treatment
- A tooth that is misshapen
- A tooth that has little structural integrity remaining
A dental crown can also be used as an anchor for a dental bridge or to complete an implant. Dental crowns can also be molded to match the shape, size, color, or tone of your natural tooth. Because of the various purposes and materials a crown can be used for, we invite you to contact us at Dr Thomas E. WOLD Dentistry to learn more about their benefits for you. If you have any questions about getting a dental crown in Bend, Oregon, please contact us today. We look forward to giving you the healthy smile you deserve.
