If you have a weak or damaged tooth, then your smile is more susceptible to tooth decay and infection. However, our dentist and team can renew the structure of a lost tooth and protect its soft, inner tissues when we place a dental crown. This restoration surrounds the visible surface of the tooth, preventing harmful bacteria and other substances from attacking it. Call Dr. Kenneth Lewis if you would like to learn more about a dental crown in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Dental crowns, which are also known as dental caps, are a type of dental restoration designed to completely enclose a tooth. Dental crowns can be used to protect a tooth and restore its structure and function. At our dental practice, our crowns are made of porcelain and other tooth-colored materials to ensure that your crown is a beautiful, aesthetic addition. When you visit our dental office, Dr. Kenneth Lewis may recommend a dental crown in order to:
- Follow up root canal therapy
- Complete a dental implant
- Protect a tooth that is weakened or cracked
- Support a dental bridge
- Restore a broken or severely worn tooth
A dental crown can enhance the beauty of your smile. To schedule your consultation with our dentist, Dr. Kenneth Lewis, we invite you to call our dental office today!
