Crowns are also used after a tooth has become so extremely decayed that large parts of it must be removed. In this state, crowns effectively restore the tooth. Due to their restorative appeal, crowns can often been used by dentists to recondition discolored or stained teeth. Crowns can also be used in order to prevent a cracked tooth from undergoing further cracking, to cover implants, or more frequently to attach bridges.
Our ceramic crowns at Dr. Runne’s dental practice are ideal for individuals who have small teeth, less space in their mouth or those preferring a crown with a more natural and seamless look. Also, perhaps most importantly, Dr. Runne prefers ceramic crowns since they hold no risk of an allergic reaction nor do they increase your sensitivity to cold or hot foods. They are, quite literally, as close to teeth as you can get!
