Dental Crowns in Kenosha, WI

A dental crown, or dental cap, is a protective covering for a damaged tooth. A crown is made by taking an impression of your natural tooth that is going to covered and creating a mold from that to form the new protective crown. Once in place, a dental crown will offer protection for your tooth, making it stronger than it was prior to receiving a dental crown.
How do I know if I need a dental crown?
The tooth is comprised of a hard enamel outside, and soft pulp inside. The pulp is made from sensitive nerves and blood vessels which are prone to infection when exposed to outside elements. When the enamel is damaged, the soft pulp in your tooth is prone to pain, infection and other outside elements. Cracks in the enamel can slightly pull the tooth apart causing a pain and a source for bacteria to enter, which may lead to the need for a root canal. Worn enamel makes cracks more likely and easier for infection to get inside. Worn enamel can make eating very hot or cold foods painful since there is less protection for the sensitive nerves underneath.
A dental crown is helpful when there is significant damage to a tooth, such as a fracture or extensive wear. It will also make your tooth stronger than it was naturally, so it will be better protected against future wear. If you grind your teeth, have acid reflux, bulimia, or you have a high-acid diet, Dental crowns are necessary for preventing future damage.
