Can Woodstock area patients use a crown for a cracked tooth?
There are many reasons Woodstock area patients may be dealing with a cracked tooth. Perhaps they broke the tooth chewing on ice, or maybe they had a traumatic blow to the mouth that resulted in breakage. No matter what caused the tooth to crack, it is important that patients speak with their dental team to repair it and keep it from becoming more problematic. Broken teeth are weaker and the structure may be more susceptible to further breakage. Broken teeth may also let bacteria in to the structure, which can affect the dental pulp and require root canal therapy or worse, extraction. Taking care of the smile when problems occur is the best way to ensure better oral health as well as a more beautiful smile.
Many dentists will suggest a crown for a cracked tooth. Crowns are porcelain restorations that are custom-made to bond over a natural tooth to offer protection. Dental crowns are the perfect solution because they cover the tooth and provide an extra layer of strength, which can keep teeth from experiencing further damage. They also look completely natural so they provide aesthetic appeal as well. Patients will have their dental crowns custom made for their smile to match the color and shape of the existing teeth to ensure seamless integration.
