Do You Suffer From These Three Dental Issues? Dental Crowns Can Save The DayDo you love your smile or you are among the majority of people who'd wish to change something about their smile? Having a chipped or broken tooth from an accident or dental stains and discoloration from years of consuming certain beverages and smoking could lead you to search for a remedy that could change these minor dental imperfections.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are caps that look like a tooth and are fitted over natural teeth that have issues such as discoloration, damage, or decay. If a dentist is using crowns to restore damaged teeth, the decayed tissue is first removed before fitting a dental crown. The dentist reduces the tooth size to ensure that it can comfortably support the dental crown.

Crowns can also help finish an implant procedure when replacing a tooth. In this case, a dentist places the dental implant in the jawbone and allows it to heal. The healing process for this procedure is estimated to take roughly 3 to 6 months. The permanent crown then adheres to a special attachment piece that sticks outside the gums. Generally speaking, a crown can be used to bring back:

The Size of Teeth

Crowns adjust the size of your teeth in the event your teeth are mismatched in size, which makes your smile look uneven. Also, they can be put over damaged teeth from decay.

The Shape of Teeth

Damaged teeth due to decay tend to have a compromised shape. Such teeth need to be reshaped to enhance your smile's appearance. Crowns work to reshape the teeth and offer protection against additional damage.

The Color of Teeth

Crowns are used to restore discolored teeth. Often, crowns are customized to have a brighter color than your discolored teeth. When encased over the natural teeth, they hide the imperfections, hence restoring a brighter smile.

If you have these issues with your teeth, you may be thinking about correcting or repairing them. Talk to us to see if dental crowns can work for you.
