Crowns can be used to address cosmetic issues such as cracks, discoloration, or enamel wear. Crowns are also used to restore teeth when there is not enough tooth structure left after the decay is removed to replace the missing part of the tooth with a filling. Crowns are the best chance of survival for a tooth because they provide comprehensive coverage of the tooth, which can decrease the risk of fracture and they restore the tooth back to full function.
If the doctor determines that a crown is the best option for your tooth, the process will be very smooth for you. With a state-of-the art dental lab to fabricate your crown, and a modern anesthetic system that ensures you will be completely comfortable throughout the treatment, you will be able to save your tooth without any worries.
Crowns can be made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. To maintain a natural look and feel a porcelain finished crown is best, as it can be matched to the shade of your other teeth. This will allow it to blend in and appear just like one of your natural teeth.
Crowns are durable and will usually last about 5-25 years. You should care for it as you would any of your other teeth with regular brushing and flossing. Call us today if you would like to learn more about how crowns can help restore your smile.
