Some Ways A Dental Crown Saves Your Smile
A dental crown is a natural-looking restoration that looks and functions like a real tooth. It’s used to cover teeth that need a little help. Here are a few reasons we might suggest you get a dental crown:
Strengthen Weak, Damaged Teeth
Teeth grinding, biting your nails, leaving a cavity untreated can all lead to damage on your enamel that can weaken the structure of your tooth. Weak teeth are more vulnerable to further, more serious damage, so we can cover and protect them with a crown so they remain strong.
Orthodontics, medications, dark foods and drinks, or any damage to a tooth can discolor it, making it stand out against your surrounding teeth. Since crowns are designed to look natural, we can use them to cover up stained or discolored teeth for a brighter, more evenly colored smile.
Replace A Tooth
Crowns can be bonded together to create a dental bridge that fills the gap a lost tooth leaves behind. You can also use a single crown that’s attached to a dental implant to replace a tooth so that your surrounding healthy teeth don’t have to be filed down to fit a bridge.
Fill A Large Cavity
In most cases, you can treat a cavity in its earliest stage with a standard filling. But given enough time, a cavity can get bigger, damaging too much of your tooth’s structure for a regular filling. Covering it with a crown after we remove the decayed portion can help keep the tooth intact.
