Teeth that have suffered extensive damage or are too badly stained or discolored for teeth whitening may need a dental crown to become fully restored. Dr. Cynthia E. Sherwood may recommend a dental crown if you are looking to make your damaged tooth look like new.

Essentially, dental crowns are protective caps that are placed over weakened or misshapen teeth to provide protection and a more aesthetic appearance. Dr. Cindi will customize your dental crown to fit the needs of its intended tooth. We can tailor the crown to your preferences of curvature, color, shape, and size.

If a broken tooth has begun to come apart, you may need a dental crown to contain the broken pieces and hold them together to restore the functionality of the tooth. Similarly, a dental crown can cover a tooth with a large dental filling if there is not enough remaining tooth structure. Dental crowns are often the ideal solution when a tooth or the surrounding jaw structure has too much damage to be repaired by other restorative services.

We encourage you to come visit Cynthia E. Sherwood DDS and be seen by our dentist before it’s too late to save a tooth with a dental crown. Call (620) 331.4499 today to schedule your appointment and ask any questions you may have about receiving a dental crown in Independence, Kansas.
