Why have teeth crowned? - Here are 4 reasons a Dental crown is an option to consider
For cosmetic reasons -
To protect a tooth. Teeth with large fillings are structurally weak. Bits of tooth or filling can break off during chewing. Crowning a tooth stops this happening. Read our blog on how teeth are weakened & fail because of old dental amalgam fillings.
To improve the health of your gums & prevent decay. Large fillings are sometimes pourly shaped & can create areas where food collects (foodtraps). This continuous collecting of food debris creates 2 problems ~ gum infection (periodontal disease) & tooth decay. With gum infection the bone that holds your teeth in is destroyed creating a bigger gap between your teeth. This results in more food trapping (a vicious circle). The food that is trapped is “eaten” by bacteria that live in your mouth. These bacteria excrete acids. This acid starts the decay process. Crowning teeth restores the natural shape of the tooth thus reducing food trapping.
To improve the way your teeth bite together, thus improving your ability to chew & enjoy eating.
