Restore Your Smile Today With Dental Crowns in Wrigleyville
Dental crowns are a type of restoration that may be recommended to you for a variety of reasons. If you have an old, large filling, there may not be enough tooth structure left to replace it with another filling. Old fillings get loose, and dental crowns in Wrigleyville may be the best option in order for you to keep your natural tooth.
You might also need a dental crown if your tooth was badly chipped. Perhaps you experienced an injury to your mouth or face, causing the tooth to break. You may have bitten into a hard piece of food or an ice cube, cracking the tooth. In some cases, unusual weakness or thinning of the enamel may cause part of a tooth to chip off. Covering the tooth with a strong crown allows you to avoid a root canal and keep your natural tooth for as long as possible.
Another reason why you might need a crown is if your tooth cracked. A crack that penetrates the enamel or partly into the dentin may not need a root canal, but it may not be strong enough to bite on. The crown strengthens the tooth so that you can chew.
People who have had a root canal also need to have a crown. The tooth is weakened by the root canal procedure. Getting a crown restores the strength of the tooth and keeps your gum tissue healthy.
