How do dental crowns help your dental health?

It's important to consult with your dentist to determine if a dental crown is the appropriate treatment option for your specific dental condition. They will evaluate your oral health and discuss the most suitable material and design for your crown to ensure optimal results.

  • Restoring tooth structure

    Dental crowns are used to restore the shape, size, and strength of a tooth that has been significantly damaged due to decay, trauma, or wear. They provide a protective covering that helps to prevent further deterioration and potential tooth loss.

  • Enhancing aesthetics

    Dental crowns can improve the appearance of a tooth by enhancing its color, shape, and alignment. They are designed to match the natural color and contour of your existing teeth, resulting in a seamless and aesthetically pleasing smile.

  • Providing durability and longevity

    Crowns are typically made from durable materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys. These materials are strong and resistant to wear, allowing the crown to withstand the forces of biting and chewing. With proper care and maintenance, dental crowns can last for many years, providing long-term functional and aesthetic benefits.

  • Protecting weak or cracked teeth

    Teeth that are weakened or have large fillings are more susceptible to fractures or further damage. Dental crowns provide reinforcement and support to these weakened teeth, preventing them from breaking or fracturing. By protecting the underlying tooth structure, crowns help to preserve the natural tooth and avoid the need for more extensive treatments like extraction.

  • Improving bite and chewing function

    Damaged or misshapen teeth can affect your ability to bite and chew properly. Dental crowns restore the natural shape and function of the tooth, allowing for improved bite alignment and more efficient chewing. This can enhance your overall oral health by promoting proper digestion and reducing strain on other teeth.

  • Supporting dental bridges and implants

    Dental crowns are commonly used to anchor dental bridges, which replace missing teeth. They provide stability and support to the bridge, ensuring a secure and functional replacement for the missing tooth or teeth. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to create a natural-looking and fully functional tooth replacement option.

  • Minimally invasive procedure

    In many cases, dental crowns can be placed with minimal removal of tooth structure. This means that a significant portion of the natural tooth can be preserved while still achieving the desired restoration. The minimally invasive nature of crown placement helps to maintain the overall strength and integrity of the tooth.
