Dental mishaps happen, even when you try your best to take care of your teeth. If you’ve fractured a tooth by biting down on hard food, don’t despair. Chances are Dr. Nima Afzalian can repair your tooth through dental crown treatment. At My Dental and Implants, Glendale, Arizona, we often recommend crowns to treat problems with decayed or damaged teeth. Crowning a damaged tooth restores its health and function to avoid having it removed.
Crowns offer an alternative to extraction when dealing with severely decayed or damaged teeth. When possible, saving a permanent tooth is always the better option, as it spares you the trouble of replacing it later.
A dental crown is a custom-fitted cap or covering that Dr. Afzalian can place over a compromised tooth to protect it from further damage. Crowns can be made from ceramic, porcelain, metal, or composite resin. Most people choose porcelain or ceramic crowns as they closely resemble natural teeth’ color, texture, and sheen.
Crowning a tooth is a process that’s completed in stages:
A crowned tooth will look and function like normal. You can eat, laugh, and smile confidently, knowing your fractured tooth has been restored.
