Tooth-Colored Restorations

dental crowns in urbandale A dental crown is an excellent solution for a tooth that's been compromised with decay that is more extensive than a filling can fix. Tooth crowns are also ideal for replacing an old filling that's broken down or strengthening a tooth that's had root canal treatment. Dental crowns in Urbandale can also be used to correct cosmetic flaws like discoloration or broken teeth.

How a Dental Crowns Protects Your Tooth

A crown fits over your remaining tooth structure like a cap and closely mimics your natural tooth size, shape, and shade. It provides you with all the same functions for eating and chewing that you had before, and it's also easy to brush and floss.

According to the American Dental Association and your Johnston area dentist, you should have checkups and teeth cleanings every six months.

However, if you do notice a cavity, it may look like a spot or tiny hole in your tooth, and it can change color over time.

Dental Fillings in Urbandale

If you do have a cavity, it’s essential to treat it before it spreads, causing a toothache or the need for a root canal. Untreated tooth decay can even cause tooth loss.

A dental filling means your dentist clears the decay from your tooth under general anesthesia. Then we close it with a tooth-colored filling to prevent further decay or bacteria from entering your tooth.
