Dental Crowns and Your Smile

Posted .

Do you know what the benefits are for dental crowns and your smile? The advantages of dental crowns include an aesthetic upgrade for your teeth against irregularities and abnormalities, as well as protection for your teeth from future wear and tear and oral health disorders such as bruxism and cavities. In addition, dental crowns can restore a tooth’s functionality and allow it to be helpful for chewing and eating once again.

Dental crowns can even be used to cover and conceal badly stained or discolored teeth. Even if a tooth is in good physical shape, but lacking the proper shade, dental crowns can improve its look in the event that normal teeth whitening treatments fail. Dental crowns are easy to place and customized for comfort and durability. A single dental crown can endure the wear and tear of chewing and eating for many decades, up to a lifetime of use.

Dental crowns are usually designed to form a tooth impression which is sent out to a lab to be customized. There are some forms of dental crowns that can be made in the office the same day and worn immediately, thus removing the need for any temporary crowns to be used. Dental crowns can even be used to guard other services such as dental fillings, root canals, and dental implants.
