Dental crowns in Newmarket are excellent options whether you are looking to restore a damaged tooth or improve its appearance. Crowns are one of the most common dental solutions, as they solve a wide range of problems.
A crown can repair even the most damaged tooth. It can fill a crack left by broken filling, fix a chip caused by an accident or sports injury, and hold parts together when a tooth is split in half.
Crowns on the front teeth are made from porcelain in a shade that matches your natural tooth. They can fix issues including severe discoloration and poor shape.
Dental crowns can strengthen weakened back tooth due to decay or a breakage. In these cases, the crown will typically be made from a metal, like stainless steel or gold. For a tooth nearer the front of your mouth, your dentist may recommend metal fused to porcelain for a better appearance.
If you suffer from bruxism (grinding or clenching of the teeth) and you fail to seek treatment in time, your teeth could wear down. A crown can repair your teeth in this situation.
If you have a missing tooth, your dentist can fill the gap with an implant, a bridge, or dentures. The first two options are more common and both require crowns. In the case of an implant, the crown is attached to the abutment that is inserted into your jawbone. For a bridge, crowns sit on teeth on either side of the gap to hold the bridge in place.
