Protective Dental Crowns in Marion, Iowa
Sometimes, large cavities need more protection than what a filling can offer. Other times, traumatic injuries or teeth clenching can cause severe cracks and chipped enamel. Dental crowns offer the highest level of protection for teeth that require an added level of protection.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are lab-made restorations that protect the entire tooth structure above the gum tissues. Crowns offer additional support to withstand the pressure of biting and chewing when teeth are prone to additional breakage.
Dr. Matthew Sieverding & Dr. Connie Miller recommend crowns when there is little tooth structure left to repair, and a filling is inadequate. We also suggest placing crowns over teeth that have been treated with a root canal.
