Many individuals experience a crack, fracture, or break in a tooth after a trauma or biting down on something. When this happens, your dentist may suggest getting a partial crown to cover the broken part of the tooth and restore your smile. Partial crowns are the best option if the tooth is not completely broken and does not require a full crown. At Cornerstone Dental Group, your Family Dentists attend to all your questions and needs regarding cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Ron Solomon, Dr. Angela Burleson-Ott, and Dr. Bradley Girdwood serve patients in Cincinnati, OH!
The benefits of partial crowns are numerous. When your dentist places a partial crown on top of the broken tooth, it can serve as a mode of protection to prevent any further damage to the tooth. Cornerstone Dental Group's Family Dentists are ready to look for the best treatment options for you. For example, if the tooth is even more damaged, it may require a full crown instead of a partial crown.
There are other cosmetic dentistry techniques that may be suggested by your dentist if partial crowns are not the best fit. For example, dental crowns or a dental implant may be a good option if your tooth is greatly damaged and requires more care and assistance. If the tooth itself has decayed due to damage, your doctor may also suggest a root canal first. A root canal may be required for very deep cavities as well, and so your dentist may perform one to salvage your tooth and keep it healthy from bacteria.
The main purpose of receiving a partial crown is to restore your tooth's original look, strength, purpose, and integrity. If your tooth is damaged and you would like to consult Dr. Solomon, Dr. Burleson-Ott, and Dr. Girdwood, please contact Cornerstone Dental Group in Cincinnati, OH, at (513) 631-8920 today!
