Dental Crowns

Dentist Lexington Park, MD

Over time, our teeth begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, and discoloration. A crown is used to renew the appearance and function of a tooth. Crowns are not limited to just replacing the original tooth; they can be designed to create an even better aesthetic appearance.

Other reasons for needing a dental crown include:

  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left.
  • To cover severely discolored teeth.
  • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down.

Also, they are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants or as an anchor for a bridge.
