Crowns Better Than Dental Filling?


Posted on 5/23/2022 by Evan Admin
Crowns Better Than Dental Filling?If you have a damaged tooth or teeth, the dentist will suggest crowns or dental fillings to prevent further damage. A crown is a cap made of porcelain or ceramic that is used to cover a damaged tooth for protection. A dental filling is a procedure whereby the tooth cavity is filled using materials made from metal, porcelain, plastic and other materials.

Factors to Consider


There are several things you need to consider before choosing to go for crowns or dental fillings as stated below. Size of the cavity. If a tooth cavity is detected early, a dental filling will be the best option. The cavity gets wider and deeper if not treated. This weakens the tooth further and a dental crown will be the best choice.

If a tooth is filled severally, it becomes weak and prone to root infection. Such a tooth will have a crown placed.

It would make no sense to fill a cracked tooth. The best thing will be offering protection to prevent further damage. Therefore, a crown will be the most suitable procedure.

After a root canal treatment, the tooth remains hollow and weak. A dental crown can be used to cover it.

Benefits of Crowns


Crowns prevent additional damage to the tooth by covering the whole tooth. They are more versatile and are used even in cases where only a fraction of the tooth is remaining. They last for a long time and do not require repairs if placed by a professional. Also, they work like your own natural teeth when eating.

Discuss with the dentist before making a choice on which procedure is best for you. Visit our clinic for dental crowns or call us to book an appointment.
