Dental crowns are great for so many different reasons; It can be used to address a severely decayed tooth that has recently been repaired with a root canal, a damaged tooth from some type of accident, or if you have a misshaped tooth that you simply want to match your existing teeth. A dental crown can get the job done quickly and inexpensively.
Hopefully, you will never need a dental crown. However, all of us will not be so lucky. There is no need to be worried about a dental crown procedure as it is very common, and widely used today. Crowns are intended to last a very long time with proper dental hygiene. Also, they are made to match your current set of teeth, so it is very likely that your friends and family will not even notice that you have received a dental crown.
Benefits Of Dental Crowns
- Improved Chewing / Eating
- Chewing and eating are often affected when you lose or damage a tooth. Thanks to modern dentistry, the materials that are used to build the dental crown have been made tougher so that you can continue to eat foods that you love with almost zero restrictions.
- A dental crown is designed to cap or cover an existing tooth or a dental implant. It will completely fit over the top and is bonded into place. If you have a tooth that is broken, decayed, or cracked, your new dental crown will provide important protection from bacteria that might cause further damage.
- Depending on your situation, we can use a dental crown to address many types of dental concerns. If you have a tooth that can’t be saved or that has fallen out, a crown can be sued in conjunction with dental implants or to support a dental bridge. A dental crown can also be used to stabilize a tooth after a root canal procedure.
