At Mitchell Olson DDS, Dr. Mitchell Olson and our team have helped many patients in the Bloomington, Minnesota area bring back their confident smiles with the help of crowns or ‘caps’. Let’s take a look at some of the following conditions in your smile that might benefit from a dental crown restoration.

Do you have unsightly teeth? If you have unsightly chompers, dental crowns can help! Whether a tooth (or teeth) are misshapen, discolored, or gapped, dental crowns are an attractive fix.

Have you had a root canal? If you have had a root canal, your tooth will be hollow making the rest of the tooth vulnerable to fracture. We use dental crowns to restore the tooth and strengthen it to its full form and function.

 Do you have a large filling? Large fillings which cover half of the width of a tooth make it vulnerable to fracturing because it is now weakened. If you currently have a large filling and it is showing signs of stress, a dental crown can strengthen and support the tooth.

Do you have a broken cusp on a tooth? The cusps on a tooth are vulnerable to breakage due to injury or even from a large filling that weakened the tooth’s structure. The cusps typically handle most of the chewing action making them susceptible to fracture and breakage.

Do you have cracked tooth syndrome? Cracked tooth syndrome arises from a fracture within a tooth that hurts when you chew or bite down a certain way. As you chew, stress is exerted on the fracture lines and that causes pain. Placing a dental crown on the tooth will hold it together so that when you bite and chew the stress is spread out evenly on the tooth.

Do you grind your teeth or have you been told you have bruxism? If you have bruxism, the constant wear and tear on your pearly whites will eventually shorten your teeth. Covering damaged teeth with dental crowns can once again restore their form and function.
