Dental crowns Sarasota FloridaA dental crown is basically a restorative cap that is placed over the cracked, broken or decayed tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Teeth crowns used to be made of gold, but today they are made by using strong porcelain composite that looks like just like your real tooth.  A dental crown is hollow on the inside and fits over an existing tooth or a dental implant.  Old dental work that has become damaged or loose , can be removed and a crown can be fitted over the existing tooth.

Permanent crowns as a reparative tool

Apart from being used to strengthen teeth that have become damaged, loose or cracked, dental crowns  are also used to repair conditions such as a large filling, inadequate oral hygiene, ageing teeth, as well as excessive grinding of teeth or an improper bite.  While additional care is not required once the dental crown is placed, it is important for a patient to understand that the underlying tooth is still susceptible to decay or gum disease, therefore patients are still encouraged to follow good oral hygiene practices after the dental crowns are placed.
