What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are restorations designed to cover portions of teeth that have become damaged. They can and have been made from many different materials over the years, including silver amalgam and ceramics. If you want to keep your smile looking as natural as possible, it’s recommended that you opt for porcelain crowns which mimic teeth much more effectively than silver ones.
Every crown our office provides is custom-made to fit over damaged teeth exactly. This gives the tooth new life and protection that it needs to remain functional. With proper care, your crown should last 10 years or more and be capable of withstanding daily biting forces.
Do I Need a Dental Crown?
If you’ve been told recently that you need a dental crown, it’s likely because your tooth is too damaged to receive a dental filling and remain effectively protected. You could need one because you just had a root canal therapy performed and the tooth needs to be covered after the pulp has been irrigated. Perhaps you have cosmetic imperfections that more minor treatments cannot hide. You could also need a crown if you intend on replacing teeth with dental bridges or dental implants. The versatility of dental crowns is quite extraordinary, and that’s largely why they are so commonly utilized.
The Benefits of Dental Crowns
When a tooth is damaged, it cannot heal itself or get better on its own. It is not like a common cold or a cut or bruise that eventually heals over time. Once tooth enamel is gone, it’s gone for good. That’s why dental crowns are so beneficial to your oral health. A crown will stop a tooth from fracturing further, which is guaranteed to happen after enough use. A dental crown stops this fracturing and makes it possible to chew food with confidence and show off your smile, especially if you choose a porcelain crown to restore your tooth.
How to Take Care of Your New Crown
While dental crowns cannot technically develop decay since they are made from ceramics, you’ll still need to make sure the tooth underneath the crown is getting enough attention during your brushing and flossing routine. Furthermore, you’ll need to maintain routine visits with our office so we can confirm the crown is still protecting the damaged tooth as needed. If we believe that the crown needs to be replaced, we’ll recommend it as to avoid a potential dental emergency of the crown coming off. With regular at-home maintenance, your custom crown should last many years of chewing, grinding and of course, smiling!
