Why Choose a Dental Crown?

Posted by CITY FAMILY DENTAL on Jul 21 2022, 03:58 AM

Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that have been damaged. They are most commonly used for teeth that have been broken, cracked, or severely decayed. A crown essentially acts as a “cap” for the tooth and is cemented into place once it has been custom-made by a dental technician.

What Are the Benefits of a Dental Crown?

Strengthens the Tooth

Dental crowns are like helmets for your teeth. When a tooth is badly damaged or missing, a dental crown will be bonded to the tooth to restore structure and appearance. Dental crowns are also commonly used to cover dental implants.

Restores the Tooth’s Natural Look

A dental crown can restore the natural appearance of a tooth while also protecting it from further damage. A dental crown covers the entire visible portion of the tooth, all the way down to the gum line.

Your dental crown will be custom-made in a dental lab from an impression taken of your tooth. A restoration that perfectly matches the natural look of your teeth is created, so your smile will look natural.

Protects Weak Teeth From Damage

A dental crown offers protection to any tooth that is weak, cracked or has suffered extensive decay. It also acts to protect the tooth from further injury.

A dental crown can also help restore the appearance of a tooth that is misshapen or discolored and can also improve bite function.

Improves Speech

Even one missing tooth can result in problems with speech, chewing, and with your confidence. Dental crowns restore the look of a damaged tooth while also relieving the problems that can result from a missing tooth.

Better Biting and Chewing Ability

A dental crown sometimes referred to as a cap, will cover the entire tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. This can help patients bite and chew normally.

A broken tooth can cause a lot of problems. Chewing can be difficult, and patients run the risk of developing TMJ disorder, a condition that affects the jaw joint. A crown will restore the tooth and allow it to function properly.
