A cracked or damaged tooth is never fun. Luckily, the dentist Ross Township residents trust for their cosmetic dentistry, and crowns and bridges is just a phone call away. We provide our patients with the experience and expert knowledge to safely restore their tooth and smile so that they can quickly get back to their normal routine. So, what is a crown, and how can our procedure help your smile?
When would I need a dental crown?
When a tooth is damaged in any way; broken, cracked, or missing, a dental crown is a great way to restore your smile. A crown acts like a cap over the existing tooth and is used, in most cases, to save the tooth. If the root is damaged or if you need a root canal, a crown adds support and strength to the tooth. It is designed to look natural, blending naturally into your smile.
Am I a candidate for a dental crown?
Listed below are a few instances in which a crown from our Ross Township dentist may be a solution:
- A fractured tooth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discolored tooth or teeth
The dentist places the crown over the tooth. It is designed to look exactly like your natural tooth so that your smile isn’t altered. The result is a great smile and your tooth stays protected from future damage. In addition to the reasons above, a dental crown is utilized for dental bridgework, root canal procedures, and dental implants. The crown, in these cases, keeps the dental work in place and provides added support to the teeth.

While every crown procedure is as unique as your smile, you can generally expect our Ross Township dentist and staff to:
