Your smile matters and having it in the best shape you can is as important as brushing and flossing every day. But if you have a broken or cracked tooth, a crown may be the best option. Dr. JudyStrutz recommends this restorative measure if you have a tooth that can be saved. Here are 4 reasons why a crown may be best option.
1. To save the life of a tooth instead of having to replace the tooth with either an implant, or a fixed or removable bridge.
2. Having a cracked or broken tooth can cause pain and long hours of suffering. Too often broken teeth mean the pulp of the tooth has been impacted. Getting help early can sometimes mean no root canal treatment is necessary.
3. A crown can be done where it looks like your other teeth and improve the overall look of your smile. Missing or broken teeth can impact a person’s self-confidence.
4. A crown can allow you to consume foods that you enjoy. If you have a cracked tooth it may be causing pain when you consume certain foods, especially those that are either hot or cold. By getting a crown it can allow you to consume the food you love without the pain of a cracked tooth.
