Have you started noticing some wear and tear or erosion on your teeth? In many cases, our teeth can suffer quite a bit for various reasons, but what can we do to remedy and restore them? Depending on your situation, our team of dentists at Mount Waverley Smiles can place a dental crown on a ‘problem tooth’ and restore functionality and comfort for you and your smile.

What Is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns act as a cover that protects an existing tooth and may provide an alternative to tooth extractions or other procedures. Some existing teeth with compromised structures may benefit from a dental crown. A custom-milled dental crown sits on top of an existing tooth, restores its appearance, and blends with natural teeth.

When Might I Need a Dental Crown?

In some instances, patients can benefit from dental crowns to save damaged or partially compromised teeth. Patients in the following dental situations may benefit from a dental crown:

  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Severe decay in a tooth
  • A situation where a tooth is structurally compromised
  • After root canal therapy

What Are The Benefits of Dental Crowns?

Patients eligible for a dental crown procedure can benefit in several ways:

  • Improved function while eating and speaking
  • Dental crowns protect damaged teeth and can avoid an unwanted extraction procedure.
  • Dental crowns blend in with natural teeth.
  • Alleviation of pain or sensitivity brought on by rotting or broken teeth
  • Improved self-esteem in social situations or during photographs
  • Dental crowns generally consist of porcelain, composite resin, or other long-lasting materials
