If the damage to the dental crown is severe, it may need a replacement. Though minor chips or fractures can be repaired with bonding material or other means, since the aim of the crown is to protect your weakened tooth, it is important to keep the restoration intact and strong. If it needs a replacement, our dentist will remove the damaged crown, treat any underlying dental conditions affecting the tooth, and place a new custom-made restoration. We will also help you to address the issue that caused the dental crown to become damaged if needed. For example, we may recommend night guards for patients who suffer from bruxism to protect their new restorations from harm.
