It is important that everyone visit their dentist on a regular basis. There are so many different things that your dentist can do for you and your overall dental health. Aside from routine procedures or services like dental fillings or other treatments, there are several cosmetic services that your dentist can offer you also. Here at South Jersey Family Dental, our cosmetic dentist in Glassboro, Dr. Baqir Jaffery, can provide you with dental crowns too, which can actually be used for medical or cosmetic purposes.
Most commonly, dental crowns are used after someone has undergone root canal therapy. When a root canal becomes infected, the decayed portions of the tooth need to be removed and the remaining cavity needs to be filled in. Sometimes, the tooth itself has lost a significant amount of tooth mass and needs to be fully restored, otherwise food and plaque will continue to accumulate in the area left behind. A dental crown can help fill in what is missing. It will both restore the tooth’s function as well as its appearance. A dental crown can be applied for a variety of other reasons as well. Dental crowns can be applied and molded to teeth that have been broken, chipped, cracked, or are otherwise uneven or misshapen. A dental crown is composed of a tooth-colored resin that is applied and shaped onto the tooth in order to complete any areas that are missing, to even out appearances, and to fill in any gaps. A dental crown can even be used for purely cosmetic reasons. If you have an incomplete or uneven tooth, a dental crown can be applied here at South Jersey Family Dental to make it look whole. A dental crown can also be applied by our cosmetic dentist in Glassboro to cover up stained or discolored tooth roots, leaving behind a white looking root instead.
