Why do I need a dental crown?
Dental enamel is strong, in fact, it’s the hardest substance in the human body. But we depend on our teeth to do a lot of work over the years, and as strong as enamel is, it’s not indestructible.
At Doylestown Dental, we use crowns to restore function and appearance when your teeth start to break down. One example is a tooth that has already had multiple fillings. In this case, a crown is often the best solution to provide support and protection. Also, clenching or grinding your teeth (bruxism) can cause significant wearing and erosion and can damage your teeth before you realize it. Another situation where our doctors might recommend a crown is after a root canal to add strength and protection.
We design esthetic crowns that are made of porcelain and customized to blend seamlessly with your smile. You have the option of choosing a lab-fabricated crown that requires several visits, or our doctors can talk to you about state-of-the-art same-visit crowns that allow you to leave our office after your appointment and get on with your life.
Our all-porcelain dental crowns are made to replicate the appearance of dental enamel so they enhance your appearance as well as protect your oral health. If one of your teeth is damaged and you think a dental crown might be a good solution, please call us to schedule a consultation with Doylestown dentist Dr. Jacko or Dr. Siefker.
