Dr. Tayo Ogunsola may recommend a dental crown in Frisco, Texas, to restore a tooth. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over the entire visible portion of a tooth to protect it and to restore its shape, size, and strength.
When is a dental crown needed?
Our dentist may recommend a dental crown to:
– Protect a weak tooth from breaking
– Restore a broken tooth
– Restore a tooth that had extensive decay
– Restore the structure of a tooth that has had root canal therapy
– Improve the appearance of a tooth
– Cover a dental implant
– Anchor a dental bridge
What should I expect during placement?
If there is not much tooth structure remaining, our dentist may first build up a foundation to support the dental crown. The tooth enamel of the crown is then shaped to allow room for the dental crown in your smile. Impressions are made of the tooth and the surrounding teeth so that the dental crown can be custom made. When your dental crown is finished, Dr. Tayo Ogunsola will check the color and fit. After any necessary changes have been made, the dental crown will be permanently bonded in place.
