Benefits of a Tooth Cap

Tooth CapWhen you have an extensively damaged tooth or if you had root canal treatment or dental implants, then it is likely that you will need a tooth cap. A tooth cap or a tooth crown is a “cap” placed over the tooth or dental implant.

It can be made from either porcelain, zirconia, or gold or porcelain fused to metal.

Among these materials, porcelain is the most commonly used because it can perfectly mimic the appearance of natural teeth. It is also durable and can withstand heavy forces such as when you chew and eat.

If you are getting a dental cap, here are some of the benefits you can enjoy!

  1. Preserves the natural tooth – when you have a badly damaged tooth, the first treatment people often think of is tooth extraction. This is not always the case. Your Sydney dentists will always try their best to save your natural tooth. With a tooth cap, we simply remove all decayed parts, reshape the tooth, and then place a tooth cap over it.

  2. Maintains bone height and enhances the facial profile – when you remove a tooth thinking it is the only way for treatment, the bone decreases, and your face sags against the space. Avoid this and maintain a youthful look by keeping your natural tooth and treating it with crowns Sydney.

  3. Protects the damaged or root-canal restored tooth – a tooth that has been badly damaged can be extremely fragile, the same goes with a root canal treated tooth. To protect the tooth and prevent it from further damage, consult with your dentist Sydney CBD about tooth caps or dental crowns.

  4. Rejuvenates the beauty and function of your tooth – dental crowns in Sydney made from porcelain looks so beautifully natural that it doesn’t even look like you are wearing any false teeth. This can come in handy when you have a badly damaged front tooth.  

  5. Covers a dental implant – a missing tooth treated with a dental implant in Sydney will have a metal pole that keeps it permanently embedded in the jawbone. Tooth caps are used to cover this metal pole to complete your smile.
