The Basics of Dental Crowns

Posted .

Are you in need of a smile restoration? If so, you are not alone. Accidents, cavities, and other things could leave you in need of a dental crown. Here at Niles Dental in Woodbridge, Virginia, our team cares about your oral health and is happy to help you understand more about dental crowns.

In a nutshell, a dental crown is a cap that goes over a tooth and can be used to restore a tooth for a variety of reasons. If your tooth suffers from a deep cavity that a filling alone cannot fix, a dental crown may be used to protect the tooth. A dental crown can also be used to correct your smile if you have damaged teeth, to cover a dental implant, and for other reasons your dentist, Dr. Raymond R. Niles can discuss with you.

When it comes to restoring smiles, a dental crown can be an excellent choice. Dental crowns are unique and custom-made, and can blend in with your surrounding teeth. That makes them virtually unnoticeable to others. That is just one reason why crowns are such a popular choice when it comes to cosmetic restoration.
