When we eat too much sugary foods
Cavities from sugary foods can damage more than your smile; they can cause decay within a tooth that can cause severe damage. Therefore, we provide a dental crown procedure to repair any damage done to your teeth. A dental crown does what a filling is not suitable to do such as holding a cracked tooth together, keeping a bridge in place, or cover misshapen or discolored teeth. You will usually need a crown if you needed or just had root canal therapy and after the installment of your dental crown you will need to practice good oral hygiene.
There are several types of dental crowns that are made of different materials. Some materials include:
- 100% ceramic
- 100% metal (gold alloy, palladium, or base-metal alloy)
- Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) or zirconia
