Best reasons to see your dentist in Mississauga for a tooth-colored crown

Smiling woman

Today more than ever, we find it important to repair teeth in such a way that the smile’s natural appearance is preserved. A crown is a customized restoration that is designed to replicate the size and shape of a tooth. Though it is possible for a crown to be made from gold or other types of metal, the most commonly used material for dental crowns is porcelain. This material, whether used on its own or as a covering for a metal substructure, best resembles natural enamel for results that patients love.

Your dentist in Mississauga may use a dental crown for a number of reasons:

  • Extensive damage from decay. In some cases when a cavity has caused extensive damage that has affected the overall structural integrity of the tooth, the best way to restore full function is by covering the entire structure with a beautiful crown. Crowns are also used to replace old, cracked amalgams.
  • A fracture or break in a tooth minimizes functionality and also invites bacteria into small crevices, where decay can set in. A crown covers the broken tooth, cushioning chewing force and keeping bacteria out.
  • Worn enamel can cause sensitivity as the softer inner tissues and nerves are less protected by natural enamel. A beautiful porcelain crown provides protection and prevents further wear.
  • Infection in a tooth may require root canal therapy, leaving the tooth brittle. Further damage can be prevented with a crown.
  • Missing teeth can be replaced with bridgework, dentures, or dental implants, all of which include a crown or crowns for support or function and beauty.
  • Cosmetic issues such as poor shape or proportions or internal discoloration may all be disguised beneath a custom designed, tooth-colored crown.
