Dental Crowns in Bowling Green, KY

A dental crown is essentially a cap that goes on top of a damaged tooth. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials such as ceramic, metals, porcelain, composite resins, and more. When created and fitted correctly, a crown can be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. A crown can be placed on molars that are rarely seen or placed on your front teeth and crafted to naturally match the surrounding teeth. There are several key factors to consider when choosing a crown. These include cost, durability, strength, and how they will affect your smile. Your dental professional at Westen Dental Group will discuss each of these options with you so that you’re able to make the choice that makes the most sense for your life.

Why Are Dental Crowns Used?

Cosmetically Improve the Aesthetic of a Tooth

Dental Crowns are able to conceal imperfections and either restore or improve the natural appearance of a tooth in circumstances where bonding or veneers would not be sufficient. Crowns are often the best way to restore the beauty of a smile.

Repair a Severely Damaged Tooth

When a tooth is suffering from extensive decay or damage, such as a large cavity or broken tooth, a dental crown can be placed in order to save the natural tooth's function, restore its appearance, and remedy or prevent severe tooth pain.

As Part of a Root Canal Procedure

If an infection spreads to the soft interior of a tooth, a root canal is often performed to remedy the infection and save the natural tooth. Often, once the root canal is completed a dental crown is placed on top of the tooth in order to protect the tooth and provide additional support.

Cosmetically Improve the Aesthetic of a Tooth

When a tooth is missing, a post is embedded into the jaw area where the root of the missing tooth used to be. A crown is then placed atop this post and is indistinguishable from the surrounding natural teeth.

How to Know if You Need a Dental Crown

Broken or Cracked Teeth

Cracked or fractured teeth don’t heal, and solutions like fillings are typically not able to adequately repair the damage. Capping the damaged tooth with a dental crown is often the ideal solution to restore function and relieve pain.

Large Cavities Or Decayed Teeth

When there are large cavities in a tooth, trying to repair the cavity with a filling can place the tooth at significant risk for breaking. By capping the tooth with a crown, the cavity is repaired, and the structural integrity of the tooth is ensured.

Excessive Tooth Wear

When teeth are excessively worn down due to teeth grinding, highly acidic diets, bulimia, or acid reflux the function of the bite may collapse, and the best solution is to cap the tooth with a fully formed dental crown. This restores the function of biting and chewing while also saving the tooth from further damage.

Invisalign®

Straighten your teeth with a clear alternative to metal braces. (For Example: Invisalign®)

Clear aligners are a removable, discreet orthodontic treatment. They consist of a series of trays that you wear for several weeks at a time. As your teeth gently move into position, you start using the next set of trays.

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as esthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long-lasting esthetic and functional result.

Dental Exams And Check-Ups

Maintaining consistent dental appointments that include regular dental exams, professional dental cleanings, and x-rays is essential for good oral health.

Dental Implants

Implants are made of titanium and have special coatings that encourage the fusing of human bone. The top of each implant has an internal screw channel so that crowns, bridges, and or dentures can be screwed in place.
