You might need a dental crown to restore the look and strength of a cracked tooth when a filling just will not do. Dental crowns look, feel, and function like your natural teeth allowing proper chewing function. Dr. Danielle Wehle can provide you with a dental crown in San Jose, CA.
Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Dr. Wehle might suggest a dental crown is needed if:
- You need a large filling
- You have decay-weakened teeth
- You have severely worn or broken teeth
- Your tooth is discolored or misshapen
- To prevent teeth from breaking (cracked tooth)
- You have had a root canal
- You need a dental bridge
If you have a cracked tooth Dr. Wehle might suggest a dental crown to repair the damage. Dr. Wehle will ensure you are properly numbed for the procedure to provide you with the most comfortable experience possible. The cracked tooth is adjusted and reshaped to receive the new covering that will fit snuggly and securely over your tooth. An impression is taken of your tooth and sent off to a lab where the new dental crown will be made. A temporary dental crown is placed and two to three weeks later the new permanent crown will be cemented in place. The natural looking covering will look, feel, and function like a real tooth.
