What are dental crowns?

Dr. Ramin Mirmooji describes the dental crown as a type of restoration used to cover a damaged or broken tooth. Crowns are also often referred to as caps, as they effectively cap off the top portion of your tooth, and they also help to reinforce teeth that have been weakened by large fillings or root canals.

Do dental crowns look natural within the smile?

Crowns, or tooth caps, are typically made of ceramic material and can be colour-matched perfectly with your natural teeth. They are custom-fit for the patient using precise measurements taken from the patient’s mouth, ensuring that each crown fits in place snugly without causing discomfort or issues with chewing or speaking.

Dental crowns placed after root canals

Dental crowns are a common cosmetic treatment for patients who have recently had root canal therapy performed on one or more teeth. This surgery removes all traces of infection from the inside of your tooth but may leave it looking somewhat unsightly as the root canals are visible from within the tooth. Dental crowns cover up this unsightliness and protect the compromised area of your tooth from further damage.

Why would you need a dental crown?

Crowns are typically used for cosmetic purposes or to improve the stability of a damaged or compromised tooth. This may include teeth that have been cracked or broken, as well as teeth that have extensive decay. If a spotted cavity is left untreated, it can spread deeper into your tooth and affect nerve endings within your pulp. To prevent this issue, it’s important to see Dr. Ramin Mirmooji for regular checkups so he can spot any potential problems before they progress too far.
