Dental Crown (Affordable Tooth Cap)

Dental Crown (Affordable Tooth Cap)

When a tooth is crooked, badly stained or broken, your Queens dentist may recommend that you get a dental crown. Also referred to as a dental cap or tooth cap, a crown is an ideal solution that improves your damaged tooth’s shape, appearance and functionality.

Missing or damaged teeth can lead to self-conscious feelings, leaving you with a lower self-image and lack of self-confidence. A tooth cap placed on a tooth restores it to its natural size and shape, all while improving your appearance.

Teeth Crowns and Implants

Implants serve a variety of purposes. They stabilize your jaw after losing teeth. They encourage jaw bone regeneration and securely hold teeth replacements. After the surgical procedure of placing the implant is complete, your cosmetic dentist, who also serves as your family dentist attaches the dental crown over the implant.

According to the Mayo Clinic: “A dental implant is a metal post that replaces the root portion of a missing tooth. An artificial tooth (crown) is placed on an extension of the post (abutment) on the dental implant, giving you the look of a real tooth.”

Dental Caps: Ideal Tooth Replacements

There are a number of reasons why your cosmetic dentist may recommend a dental cap. The most common reasons include:

  • Holding a decayed or cracked tooth together
  • Restoring a broken or worn-down tooth
  • Correcting unattractive, misshaped or discolored teeth
  • Covering an implanted post
  • Attaching a tooth bridge
  • Preventing additional decay after you have a root canal

Your pediatric dentist also might recommend teeth crowns for children to protect their baby teeth from further decay or for teeth that can’t be saved by fillings. When you get a tooth cap, you end up with a tooth that looks better and is much stronger.
