Caps in Point Pleasant
At our dental practice, we understand that unforeseen tooth damage or decay can occur over time or in an instance. With this in mind, our dentist may recommend dental caps to restore your smile. Caps offer a natural look and feel while strengthening your damaged tooth.
Your dentist will recommend a dental cap to help repair
- A weak or cracked tooth
- A broken or severely worn down tooth
- Need additional coverage after a large filling
The cap is a tooth-like cover made from various materials that envelopes the whole tooth. The complete coverage of the cap restores shape, size, and strength while improving the look of the tooth. Overall, dental caps are an attractive option for repairing severely damaged teeth.
Caps offer several cosmetic and oral health benefits, including:
- Restoring your smile and ability to speak and chew properly
- Strengthening your weak tooth
- Improved shape of a broken or cracked tooth
- Covering a stained tooth
- Protecting a tooth after a procedure such as a filling or a root canal
- Covering a dental implant
By properly caring for your dental caps, you will extend the lifetime of the procedure and your new smile. With daily brushing and flossing, you can protect your natural teeth along with your cap. Routine dental visits will also help to ensure that your caps are functioning correctly and prevent further tooth decay.
