Dental crowns are just one of several dental restorations used to restore the smile’s beauty, function, and health. Theseversatile porcelain caps are customized to the patient and can be used in various ways. Dr. Kenneth Poznikoff of Riverside Dental Clinic is committed to providing Drumheller, Alberta, area patients with dental solutions that meet their needs and assist them in achieving healthier teeth and gums.
What is a dental crown?
Dr. Poznikoff describes the crown as a restoration meant to “cap” the natural tooth. It may also be used over dental implants or with false teeth called pontics. There are many situations where Dr. Poznikoff might recommend that patients consider dental crowns.
Dental crowns are used in cases where:
- A tooth has a large area of decay that cannot be treated with a filling alone
- A tooth has undergone a procedure such as root canal therapy or endodontic therapy that leaves the tooth brittle and susceptible to further damage
- A missing tooth is replaced with a pontic and fused to two dental crowns to create a dental bridge
- A dental implant has been placed to replace a missing tooth and is restored over the top using a crown to finish the process and restore the function and appearance of the smile
Do I need a dental crown?
At Riverside Dental Clinic, we encourage patients to only consider treatments that are completely necessary for their smile. We will not make a recommendation if it is not in our patient’s best interests. Dr. Poznikoff will often provide multiple solutions based on a patient’s situation and assist them in making an educated decision for their smile’s unique needs.
