Find out why your dentist may have recommended that you get a dental crowns

Dental crowns are a rather popular restoration, so perhaps you already know a little bit about them and their purpose. Perhaps our Franklin, WI, dentist, Dr. John Olsen, just told you that you could benefit from getting a dental crown and you’ve come here to learn more about it. Whatever the case might be, finding out more about the dental services we offer may come in handy in the future should you need restorative dentistry.

Here are some reasons why someone may need to get a dental crown:

To Restore a Tooth

Whether your tooth was fractured during a sports injury or decay has caused your tooth to weaken, there are many situations in which a dental crown will be used to revive the tooth and improve its strength. A damaged tooth is weak and prone to further damage if left untreated. By getting a dental crown from your Franklin general dentist, you can ensure that the tooth is strong and remains stable.

Also, if you undergo root canal therapy (an endodontic procedure in which we remove an infected or irritated dental pulp), most of the time we will also want to place a dental crown over the treated tooth to preserve it.

To Enhance Your Appearance

A tooth-colored crown is designed to look just like a real tooth, so it should come as no surprise that some people may choose to get these tooth-shaped caps in order to improve their appearance. Maybe you were born with a malformed tooth or unsightly internal discolorations have made your otherwise beautiful smile look unattractive. If this is the case, a dental crown can be placed over the tooth to alter and enhance the tooth’s shape, length or color.

To Replace Missing Teeth

If you are missing a tooth or a couple teeth in a row then you may be considering a dental bridge or a dental implant to restore your smile. If this is the case then you’ll also need to get a dental crown. Not only are crowns used to cover a dental implant but they are also placed over teeth to support a dental bridge.

Whether you have questions about getting dental crowns in Franklin, WI, or you just need to schedule your routine appointment, don’t hesitate to call Franklin Dental today. We are here to meet all of your needs.
