A decayed or damaged tooth can be painful and make it difficult to eat and speak properly.
A dental crown covers a tooth following treatment for damage or decay and provides support, restoring function to your bite once more.
Learn how the dentists at Berger Dental Group in Columbia, SC, can help improve your oral health and function with a dental crown.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is often used for a damaged tooth that cannot be repaired with an inlay, onlay, or filling. This not only restores the appearance of the tooth but also provides strength to the tooth structure.
If you are missing a tooth or require an extraction, a dental crown supported by a dental implant may be a great option for you. Not only does it replace the missing tooth structure but the implant acts as a prosthetic tooth root, providing the jawbone the stimulation it needs to prevent bone degeneration that occurs with missing teeth.
A root canal is used to address tooth decay that reaches the tooth roots. A dental crown is then placed over the remaining natural tooth following root canal therapy to provide the tooth with additional strength and protection.

What Are Dental Crowns Made Of?
Crowns are made of materials such as porcelain, gold, and other metals. Porcelain is frequently used as it is durable and provides other benefits. Porcelain is natural-looking and can be shade-matched to your natural teeth, providing cosmetic benefits. Finally, porcelain is often used for patients with metal allergies and sensitivities. With proper care, your dental crown can last for years.

Dr. Berger and his entire team from the receptionist, dental hygienist to the Big Man himself are AMAZING! I’ve been under Dr. Berger’s care for a few years now. I was your typical “traumatized” patient; afraid of dental work. This family is just that; kind and gentle, thorough and masterfully skilled. There’s got to be more than 100 years of combined experience in this group! (smile). I had some major work done recently and the care i received was amazing! You won’t find a better dental group in SC! Their stuck with me! Don’t delay, make your appointment today! #drbdidnotpaymetosaythisView on Google
