Is a Dental Crown Better Than Filling?

Dental crowns can be used to cover a broken or decayed tooth when too much of the original tooth is missing to hold a filling. They are also used to protect a weak tooth from breaking, and to cover stained or badly shaped teeth and make it stronger and longer-lasting. In modern dentistry, dental crowns can be made from a variety of modern dental materials that match your natural teeth. Ceramic crowns provide the best aesthetic benefits in modern dentistry, and naturally match or even improve your tooth color, with variable cosmetic properties such as luster, shade, and translucency. This style of crown is a great choice for highly visible areas such as the front teeth. The Bryan Dental in Bryan and College Station area is conveniently located near to the Briarcrest Walmart is a low-cost dental office and is the best Orthodontics near you.

Your dentist will usually prepare the tooth by removing a layer of the outer surface of the tooth. The crown will be the same thickness as the thickness of this removed layer. To make a crown, your dentist takes a mold of your tooth and sends it away to a technician who will prepare the crown. It can often be matched to the color of your teeth, so it will blend in.  When your the  crown is ready, you’ll go back to the dentist and have it fitted using dental cement or adhesive. Dental crowns are a relatively new innovation in the world of cosmetic dentistry Simply put, they are a “cap” made of dental ceramic it also called composite resin that is placed over the top of a prepared tooth. Dental crowns are used to enhance and strengthen irreparably damaged teeth.
