What is a Tooth Cap?
Posted on 7/15/2019 by Thomas Wold, DMD
Caps are also commonly referred to as crowns. These are one of the most commonly performed dental procedures today. Before you get this procedure done, there are a few things you should know. When Dental Crowns are UsedThere are several important functions that dental crowns perform. One of their most important jobs is to protect any weak teeth you may have in their mouth. However, we also use them to restore a broken tooth or to prevent a cracked tooth from cracking even further. If you have a large filling, we may also consider using a crown to support the tooth that has this filling in it. Regardless of when we use it, there is one thing that each of these situations has in common: The crown is used to either replace or support a tooth that can no longer function by itself. This is because crowns are the best option when you have a tooth that's lost its shape, been broken, gotten cracked, or is otherwise badly damaged. Here a crown can restore the damaged tooth's alignment, shape, and overall appearance because once in place, your crown looks like it's a part of your tooth that belongs there. How Dental Crowns WorkA crown fits over your tooth in a way that's similar to how a thimble fits over your thumb when you're sewing. Once it's cemented in place the crown will protect your tooth so it can't break apart any further. It will allow you to be able to chew with your tooth again without damaging it any further. As you eat, the crown will act as a shield, protecting your tooth from damage. When you have some questions about whether a crown might be the right treatment for you, make sure you give our office a call. We look forward to setting up a time to discuss this treatment option with you....
