Appointment Request

Find out when a dental crown is used and how it benefits your smile.

A cracked, chipped or broken tooth can happen to anyone. This dental emergency can often be a cause of concern but take a deep Crowns breath because your Vero Beach dentist Dr. Raymond A. Della Porta is here to help. Find out the purpose of a dental crown and how it can repair a damaged tooth.

Dr. Della Porta may recommend getting a dental crown if:

  • You have significant decay that a dental filling, inlay or onlay won’t properly repair
  • You have a tooth that is severely injured or broken
  • You have a tooth severely weakened by decay or infection (which may also require root canal treatment)
  • The tooth’s pulp has been infected or inflamed and requires root canal treatment
  • A dental filling has failed and requires a more extensive restoration
  • You need to secure a dental bridge in place to replace one or more teeth
  • You are planning to get a dental implant to replace missing teeth

If you are only looking to fix cosmetic issues rather than functional smile issues than you may not need something as extensive as dental crowns. Your Vero Beach dentist also offers dental veneers, thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth to change the color, shape and size of your smile. We can help you decide which treatment is right for you when you come in for your consultation.

Good Candidates for Dental Crowns

If you are dealing with any of the issues above then crowns will most likely be the best option. But you will still need to meet these criteria in order to be right for this restoration:

  • Have good general and oral health. Those who have untreated gum disease may not only deal with dental damage in the future but this chronic infection can also affect the placement of the crown.
  • You have enough healthy tooth left to support a dental crown. While some teeth will need to be filed down to accommodate the crown, those with not enough healthy tooth structure may require their Vero Beach, FL cosmetic dentist to apply dental filling or bonding material to reshape the tooth before placing the crown over it.

If you’re dealing with a damaged tooth then time is of the essence. Call our Vero Beach dental office today. Any dental emergency requires immediate care to preserve your smile.
