What Are The Benefits Of A Dental Crown?

Cavities or cracks in your teeth can have a number of adverse effects on your oral health. Besides negatively affecting your smile’s appearance, it can cause you to have an unhealthy bite, as well as make you vulnerable to infection. Thankfully, your tooth’s appearance and overall health can be improved with a dental crown. In just one visit, your dentist can replace your damaged natural crown (the visible part of the tooth) with a new, undamaged crown. The benefits of a dental crown are numerous.

No Need To Be Royalty To Wear This Crown

The benefits of a dental crown include:

  1. They strengthen your tooth’s structure. A crack or cavity compromises the structural integrity of the tooth. Each bite you take with a compromised tooth inflicts more damage to the structure of it. A crown can strengthen and reinforce the tooth, preventing it from sustaining more damage and providing you with a healthier bite.
  2. They look natural. Dental crowns can be formed from ceramic, which shares a number of traits with natural teeth. Using this, along with detailed scans of the original tooth, your dentist will craft a prosthetic crown that will blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
  3. They’re quick to apply. Generally, you can have the crown formed and applied within the same visit thanks to advances in dental technology. Using an E4D machine, your dentist can craft a natural-looking crown that is permanent and long-lasting all in one day!
