A large chip or extensive tooth decay may weaken a tooth to the extent that it can no longer be restored by a simple filling. The tooth will need a dental crown. A crown is custom made to fit right over the tooth to protect it from further damage. It will be made to match the shade of your natural teeth so that it will blend in perfectly.

Tooth whitening is as popular as ever but some stains are harder to remove. Anything that comes in contact with our tooth enamel can stain it. Some of the more common stain producers are red wine, dark colored fruits and coffee, to name a few. After time these stains tend to get stubborn and more resistant to whitening. Another kind of stain is intrinsic, meaning that it comes from discoloration of the inner layers of the tooth, deep inside where a tooth whitening solution cannot reach. A dental crown can cover up a multitude of sins.

If you have lost one or more teeth to disease or tooth decay you will want to replace it asap. If you wait too long the bone structure that once supported the tooth no longer has a reason to function and may start to deteriorate. That open gap in your mouth by the way, is an invitation to bacterial growth. A dental crown can be the answer.
