If you have been searching for an answer about what to do with an old tooth crown, then search no more. Our highly trained cosmetic dentists have a wide variety of different techniques and options to replace your old teeth crowns.
The worst thing you can do is nothing. New decay underneath old crowns can further damage teeth, which can affect your bite and cause many other cosmetic and neuromuscular dental problems. Unstable crowns can also lead to the infection of neighboring teeth, cause the need for root canals, and may lead to gum disease.
Today's technology offers more choices and better results. Once your evaluation is complete, our doctor will discuss the best options for you based on your budget and the results you are looking for. Some of these options may be to replace your old crowns with a new porcelain crown, a new crown and bridge, or other possibilities such as partial dentures or dental implants.
If you are experiencing any discomfort with old teeth crowns, call or email our restorative dentistry office today, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Kwan or Dr. Hsu. They will offer their knowledge and expertise so that you can make the decision that is right for you.
