The Many Benefits of Wearing a Dental Crown

Dental CrownIn our cosmetic dentist office, we use dental crowns to solve a variety of oral health issues. Whether you are looking to correct a damaged tooth or to improve the appearance of your teeth, dental crowns can do so in a variety of natural-looking ways. In the past, crowns were typically created out of silver amalgam. Now, Lake Ridge Dental Care can have a ceramic-on-metal or all-ceramic crown created so that it can be used on front teeth without appearing like a restoration was ever completed.

Restorations

Perhaps one of the most common reasons for needing to use a crown is to restore a tooth that has become damaged. For example, a tooth that has been chipped, cracked or severely worn down can benefit by having a crown placed on it. A crown is a full cap that surrounds the tooth and by doing so, provides stability to a tooth that was otherwise unable to support daily use. In this scenario, nothing can actually touch the natural tooth, allowing patients to continue biting down with force, regardless of the condition of the tooth.

This solution, while seemingly simple, is one of the reasons that people are able to maintain their natural teeth for longer, rather than extracting them. While there are other means of restoring a tooth like dental veneers and a bonding procedure, we find that crowns provide a unique level of stability and protection that other solutions do not.

Your Appearance

Any patient considering a dental crown to improve the appearance of a tooth or teeth will benefit best from seeking a cosmetic dentist. As a cosmetic dentist, we frequently use dental crowns to change the overall shape or appearance of teeth. For example, if the teeth are too small for a patient's frame, slightly crooked, or there are gaps between them, dental crowns can solve these problems.

Since a crown surrounds the tooth, we simply need to create it in the right size and shape for the patient's needs. This takes a level of expertise in order to know how to shape crowns for the perfect fit and desired effect. Our expertise working with this solution is vast and so is what we can accomplish. There are very few things that we cannot correct by using a crown.

Missing Tooth Replacements

If you have lost a tooth and want a permanent replacement, a dental crown will be an important part of the solution. For example, can create a bridge to replace a tooth without the need for surgery. A crown is critical to this procedure because it works by placing a crown on the two teeth that are surrounding the missing one. These crowns serve to hold the bridge in place, which the new crown (synthetic tooth) attaches to. The intricate system allows us to replace a tooth without the need for an invasive procedure. Simultaneously, the results will look natural and allow you to eat without restriction.
