It’s inevitable, teeth weaken and break down over time. Tooth decay, physical trauma, grinding or clenching, and simple aging can affect the functionality and appearance of your smile. A dental crown can restore an old tooth’s strength, function, and beauty to like-new!

A tooth crown, dental crown, or cap, as it’s sometimes called, is a permanent prosthesis that is crafted to fit your uniquely affected tooth and then affixed to cover and protect it. Alternatively, if a tooth is entirely gone, Flushing porcelain crowns dentist Dr. Salha can place the crown onto a surgical implant that replaces the tooth’s root. Either way, the crown looks and acts just like a tooth, so it will feel natural.

Some patients may even choose a full mouth of crowns over other teeth replacement options such as dentures or All-on-6. Crowns are absolutely the most natural, tooth-like replacement. Book a consultation today with Dr. Salha to discuss your options!


Is a Dental Crown Necessary?

There are a number of reasons why a dental crown might be necessary. Flushing porcelain crowns dentists at Parsons Smile Center may recommend a crown under any of the following circumstances:

  • You have a tooth with a large filling or many smaller fillings, and there isn’t much natural tooth remaining.
  • Your tooth has broken or cracked and is beyond repair with bonding or a filling.
  • You have a large cavity or have received a root canal, and a simple filling won’t do because the tooth structure is damaged.
  • You have an implant replacing the root of a tooth that was missing or needed to be extracted.
  • You require a dental bridge. In this case, two crowns will provide anchor for the bridge.
  • And finally, there may be a cosmetic application for discolored or misshapen teeth.
