If you've had a root canal or another restorative procedure, your tooth may need to be covered up. One of the best ways to cover up teeth that have undergone restorative procedures is using crowns, and your dentists in East Ellijay, GA, Dr. David Settel, Dr. Cindy Hall, Dr. Ron Reid, and Dr. Wesley Burke, offer crowns and can tell you about their benefits.
More About Dental Crowns
Crowns look like caps and are made of porcelain. Your East Ellijay dentist takes an impression of your teeth and sends them to a lab where custom crowns are made just for you. In the meantime though, you're given a temporary crown.
During restorative procedures, such as root canals, a significant amount of natural tooth is removed. This leaves the tooth exposed to decay and susceptible to breakage, which is why a dental crown is placed over the tooth. The dental crown reinforces the tooth and allows it to withstand various degrees of pressure, meaning you can enjoy eating without the worry of ruining your tooth.
