Dental Crowns Restore Shape and Strength of Your Tooth

A dental crown or cap can be used to restore your tooth’s strength, size, and shape. Not to mention, a crown will improve the appearance of your tooth.

Even small cracks can allow bacteria into the tooth, causing decay or infection and leading to further destruction.

Repair a Cracked Tooth with a Crown

A crown is a favorable option to restore a cracked tooth. In fact, many people don’t know a tooth is cracked. Cracks can occur in your natural tooth from a dental injury, chewing a hard object, or other method. Also, cracks may occur in a large tooth filling.

A cracked tooth may or may not be sensitive to hot and cold liquids. Additional symptoms include pain when biting or chewing. If your tooth cannot be restored with a tooth colored tooth filling, a dental crown may be appropriate. If cracks in the teeth are not treated, serious consequences for your oral health can happen.

Early diagnosis of a cracked tooth is possible by visiting your dentist two times per year. Our dentist will check for a cracked tooth each time you visit our Vancouver, WA office for a dental exam and cleaning.

Cracked Tooth Consequences

Even small cracks can allow bacteria into the tooth, causing decay or infection and leading to further destruction.

Fix a Cavity with a Crown

A dental crown may be used to repair a cavity that has developed in your mouth. A cavity, also referred to as dental caries or tooth decay is a breakdown of the tooth structure from acids. Acids can dissolve the hard tissues of your tooth. Consequently, the vulnerable softer tissues in your tooth are exposed to further decay.

For that reason, your tooth may need to be rebuilt with a crown or other dental restoration. Most important, progression of decay will spread quicker once it reaches softer tissue of the tooth below the enamel.

Filling vs Crown

A white tooth filling is a great option when repairing a small area of decay in the tooth. A dental filling can usually be completed in one appointment.

Alternatively, a dental crown is the best option when a tooth is weakened by extensive decay or injury. Your tooth may need a crown if a large filling has deteriorated. Fortunately, a dental crown can also be completed in one visit to Cascade Dental in Vancouver, WA.

Dr. Wilson and the Cascade Dental Staff Recommended

I received an improperly fitted and designed crown several years ago, I have suffered with continuous particles being forced into a gap that caused deterioration to a good tooth and gumline at the bad crown. Cascade dental and Dr. Wilson were able to not only diagnosis the issue but correct it as well. The methods were current, efficient, affordable and comfortable. Dr Wilson is a great dentist and I recommend him and the staff at Cascade dental wholeheartedly.
