Improve the Health of Your Teeth
Our experienced dental team is proud to offer a wide variety of services, including dental crowns in Mobile, AL, and the Semmes, West Mobile, and Theodore, AL, areas. Restoration dentistry is generally used to improve the health of your teeth, but it can also improve their appearance in notable ways.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that replaces the natural crown of a tooth. It repairs the functionality and restores the size of a tooth that has suffered damage or decay beyond what can be fixed with a dental filling. Dr. Whatley prepares the damaged tooth, takes a mold, and places temporary protection for the tooth until the permanent crown is ready.
Our philosophy is to always preserve as much of your existing tooth as possible, with the dental crown sealing your restored tooth. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, dental crowns are made from strong porcelain that is virtually invisible.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Dr. Whatley may recommend a dental crown if you have teeth with any of the following dental issues:
- Severe discoloration
- Decay or damage
- A crack or chip
- A misaligned bite
- Weakness due to root canal therapy
There are plenty of other reasons why you may need a dental crown – contact our office today for more information.
