Dental Crowns in Marshville, NC
Restorative Dental Care for an Improved Smile
There are different reasons why a patient will require a dental crown. It could arise from a broken or fractured tooth, severe tooth decay, a tooth that just had a root canal, poor oral hygiene, or a large filling.
Sometimes, a tooth gets so damaged that a dental filling procedure can’t restore it; a crown is often used for this type of issue. A crown is a tooth-shaped dental restoration that covers a damaged tooth and restores it to its original shape, size, strength, or improves its appearance. At Marshville Family Dentistry, we offer dental crowns in Marshville, NC, that blend perfectly with your natural teeth.
Porcelain crowns are designed to mimic the natural appearance of your teeth. They are of different types: the all-ceramic and all-porcelain crown and the porcelain fused to metal (PFM). Both ceramic and porcelain crowns can be utilized for posterior and front teeth and offer a safe solution for those allergic to metal crowns.
Porcelain crowns provide strength to the surrounding teeth, especially when the tooth is too weak.
While an alternative treatment such as filling may cover your teeth, it will not support the tooth structure for a long time and will eventually wear down. Dr. Andrew Tran encourages patients to think long-term regarding the type of oral care they receive.
