Dental Crowns

Over time, our teeth can begin to weaken and become more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth.

Dental crowns can:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Hold a cracked tooth together
  • Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
  • Cover a severely discolored tooth
  • Restore a broken or severely worn tooth

Also, dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants or as an anchor for a bridge.

Crowns are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown last many years.

For more information or to request an appointment, contact James L. Rutledge DDS.

Is Undiagnosed TMD Causing You Neck And Shoulder Pain?

September 9, 2020

Do you have frequent headaches or migraines, earaches or tinnitus, tender jaw muscles, or a dull aching facial pain? Do you often have neck and shoulder pain? Does your jaw lock or stray to one side when you open your mouth? These aches and pains may be related to the jaw joint, called the temporomandibular joint or “TMJ,” and the muscles that work to move the joint. These painful conditions are often called “TMD” for temporomandibular disorders.
