Dental crowns have been around a long time, and continue to play an important role in cosmetic dentistry at Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville.
A dental crown, often called a cap, covers the visible part of the tooth. They are used for many common dental issues:
- An old crown that is damaged or ill-fitting
- A broken tooth
- A tooth with extreme decay
- A tooth that has had a root canal
- A tooth that is too small or misshapen
- A tooth that prevents a proper bite
A dental crown serves both structural and aesthetic purposes. It protects a natural tooth from additional decay and damage while permitting normal function. A crown can save a tooth from extraction and the subsequent bone loss that often occurs.
Crowns need daily cleaning and flossing, just like natural teeth. The remaining tooth structure around the gumline could still become decayed, and gum disease is still possible.
