Basic Information About Dental Crowns
ARE YOU WALKING AROUND WITH ONE OR MORE BROKEN, CRACKED, OR DISCOLORED TEETH? If your self-esteem has been dwindling when you smile, because of an unfortunate accident or a case of advanced tooth decay, you’re probably a prime candidate for dental crowns. Dr. Saleh has a great deal of experience in many cosmetic dentistry procedures—including dental crown placement. Here at Dr. Saleh’s practice we want to assist you in having a smile you’re proud to flash to the world each day.
Dental crowns are often called “caps” that cover your tooth completely. Often used in connection with many cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, dental crowns are a tooth restoration solution used to protect and restore function to damaged, discolored, or decaying teeth. And, they look and function just like natural teeth. Dr. Saleh and team may recommend them if your tooth has so much decay that it would have trouble holding a filling—or if it’s in danger of cracking down near the root.
Curious about the benefits of a dental crown procedure? Here are a few reasons why a dental crown may be the very best option for improving both your appearance AND your health:
- Prevent a weak tooth from decay or breaking.
- Hold together parts of a cracked tooth.
- Restore a tooth that is already broken or severely worn down.
- Cover a dental implant.
- Cover and support a tooth with a large filling—especially if there isn’t a lot of tooth left.
- Hold a dental bridge in place.
- Cover misshaped or severely stained and/or discolored teeth.
Protection And Durability
Dental crowns also protect damaged teeth from intrusive bacteria that is present in saliva—thereby preventing further decay. And they help support the tremendous pressures of chewing. They typically last many, many years if accompanied by good oral hygiene—sometimes for a lifetime. However, it’s good to have them regularly checked by our team to be sure.
