Address Dental Damage With Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a dental restoration that we can use to protect a tooth. We often place crowns for patients who have had a deep level of 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 majorly cracked. Dental crowns can protect you from further pain, discomfort, or damage by completely covering your damaged tooth.
Keep Your Smile Looking Bright
In the modern era of dentistry, crowns can be created to look and function just like your natural teeth. And there is one added benefit that crowns have over real teeth. Your actual teeth can be stained by richly-colored foods, use of certain medicines, and just getting older. Our crowns, it turns out, will not become discolred like that.
Avoid Having A Metal Mouth
There are dental offices out there that are still using metal in their dental crowns. While metal-based crowns are strong, patients who get this type of crowns often develop a strange 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 be proud of.
Create A Lasting Solution
We can make crowns that last a long, long time. That said, a crown can fail eventually due to poor oral hygiene, sudden trauma, or a crack or break. As long as there is enough healthy tooth beneath the crown, though, we can always swap out the bad crown for a fresh one.
Use Crowns With Implants
Living with the aftermath of tooth loss as an adult can be challenging to say the least. It will adversely impact your looks, your health, and your quality of life. 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. Plus, they can be restored with dental crowns so that they look just like your natural teeth.
