Call Dahle Dental today to schedule your next appointment with one of our dentists and to learn more about our services.A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is a restoration that has multiple indications for use. One of the most common reasons that you may need a dental crown is to restore a tooth that has a large amount of damage or decay. The crown is custom made to fit over the tooth and restore the tooth to its original size and shape. Most dental crowns in our office are made of tooth colored materials called emax or zirconia because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth while providing the necessary strength to help you smile again with confidence. Sometimes we can even replace a tooth that is missing with a bridge which is similar to a crown but attaches to the adjacent teeth.Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:To support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remainTo strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weakenedTo protect a tooth following root canal treatmentTo cover and complete a dental implantTo anchor and attach a dental bridgeTo enhance the beauty of your smileTo improve a misshapen toothPlease give Dahle Dental a call at 903-892-1052 or schedule online today, to find out how we can help you smile as much on the outside as you do on the inside.
