Dental Crowns An Overview
Dental crowns are one of the most widely used dental treatments because of the many applications they can have for both restoring and enhancing your smile. Dr. Welinsky places dental crowns for a wide range of reasons and uses advanced digital technology to evaluate your needs and create a personalized treatment plan.
There are several benefits of a dental crown. First, a crown restores the size, shape, and color of your tooth which has been altered by damage or decay. Second, a crown covers the entire surface of the tooth, strengthening it and supporting long-term health and stability. This cannot be done with a filling alone.
Crowns can also be used for cosmetic concerns such as closing spaces between teeth and correcting minor rotations and the shape of the teeth.
Common uses for a dental crown:
- strengthening teeth
- restoring teeth to their natural shape and size
- covering a dental implant
- protecting a weak tooth from breaking or restoring a broken tooth
- addressing discolored teeth
- attaching bridges
- holding a filling
- enhancing appearance
Towson, MD dentist Dr. Welinsky places custom dental crowns at Welinsky Dental Center to solve a wide range of cosmetic and restorative concerns. Based on your needs, we can design and place a custom dental crown that is color-matched and shaped to blend effortlessly with your existing smile.
Crowns: The Preferred Choice
A dental crown often provides a more secure restoration than a regular filling, serving to prevent further fracture of the areas of the tooth weakened by decay, extensive fillings or a cusp fracture. A dental crown is often essential to preserve a tooth following root canal treatment.
