Why do I need a crown?

Dental crown | dentist Chesterfield MOWe may recommend a tooth crown for a number of reasons. In most cases, crowns are used to protect a tooth that has been damaged or weakened. Some of the most common reasons for this include:

  • Extensive decay
  • Injury
  • Root canal therapy
  • Clenching and grinding

Other uses for dental crowns

Crowns can also be used as part of a system to replace missing teeth. For instance, crowns are often used to hold a bridge in place, and a crown may be used to restore a dental implant.

Crowns may also be used as part of a cosmetic treatment plan. Since the crown fits over the entire tooth, this is a great option for camouflaging a tooth with significant discoloration or an unusual shape.

If Dr. Rahm feels that a crown is the most appropriate treatment, he will review this option with you thoroughly, both pros and cons, and also any other possible options so that you can make an informed decision about your dental health. He will take the time to answer your questions and make sure you are feeling comfortable and confident in your decision.
