A dental crown in Sarasota, Florida, is a standard piece of dental work that completely replaces the tooth enamel layer of a decayed, damaged or cosmetically unappealing tooth. The material a crown is made out of will be largely influenced by the tooth’s primary function and its appearance in your smile.
Gold and base metal crowns are very durable, so they are often needed to replace the tooth enamel of a molar or premolar. Porcelain and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are more often called for to restore a tooth that is visible in your smile.
A crown is routinely called for to address significant tooth decay issues. A crown could also be used to help a tooth that has been compromised by a crack or fracture.
At the same time, a crown can be used for the cosmetic enhancement of a tooth. This is especially helpful for a tooth that is visible in your smile that lacks the sufficient enamel to mount a dental veneer.
If you have a tooth that needs a dental crown, you should call Sterling Dental at 941-926-9888 and schedule an appointment with your dentist, Dr. Gregory J. Brandau.
