Dental Crowns Will Restore Dental Damage

OK, let’s begin with the basics. A dental crown is a restoration that we can use to protect a tooth. We often place crowns for patients who have encountered extensive tooth decay, or who have fillings that are too big to restore again, or to strengthen a tooth following root canal therapy, or for teeth that are heavily cracked. Dental crowns serve to protect you from further pain, discomfort, or damage by completely covering your damaged tooth. Makes sense, right?

Crowns Won’t Stain Like Teeth Do

Your crowns will be designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. But there is one advantage that crowns have over real teeth. Your pearly whites can stain with daily coffee or tea consumption, use of certain medications, and simply getting older. Our crowns, by contrast, will not.

Crowns Won’t Have To Have Metal

Some dental offices are still using metal in their dental crowns, even though this is not a necessity. It’s true that metal-based crowns are strong, but patients who are stuck with these type of crowns often develop a weird gray-colored line near their gum-line. That’s why we are using tooth-colored porcelain or zirconia for a durable and lifelike solution that you can feel good about.

Crowns Will Last A Long Time

In the modern age of dentistry, we’re able to make strong crowns that can last for many years, perhaps decades. But your crown will not be around forever. A crown can fail on account of poor oral health, sudden trauma, or a crack or break. The good news is that as long as there is enough healthy tooth beneath the crown, we can replace the bad crown with another crown. Even if you are not experiencing any pain at the moment, your damaged or missing teeth could be causing further damage to your smile if not properly protected by something like a dental crown.

Dental Crowns Can Be Used With Implants

Are your damaged or missing teeth making you self-conscious or preventing you from eating the foods you love? A dental implant can fix all that because this type of treatment can be used to replace a missing tooth, or even to stabilize a set of dentures. Implants are among the most effective replacements because they function like real roots, and are almost as strong. And they can be restored with dental crowns so that they look just like your natural teeth.
