If you have recently sustained a crack, chip, or cavity in your tooth, the entire structure of that tooth could be compromised. Having a structurally compromised tooth can lead to an unhealthy bite, which can cause even more damage to the compromised tooth, as well as the rest of your mouth. Your dentist can help repair this issue by replacing the ailing tooth with a structurally sound dental crown. Here are just a few of the ways dental crowns can restore your smile.
They Contain Quality Ingredients
Your crown is a versatile prosthetic that is made using ceramic, which is strong and shares similar properties to natural teeth. This helps ensure that your crown will look good and last for years.
They’re Designed Specifically For You
Your dental crown is custom designed for your mouth. Your dentist uses certain techniques to get an accurate model of the damaged tooth. Your dentist then uses this model to craft the crown in office, ensuring the new crown retains the structure and shape of the tooth it is replacing. Thanks to advancements in technology, you can generally have your crown created and placed in one visit.
They Help Restore Your Tooth’s Lost Function And Form
The dental crown your dentist makes will look and behave closely to how your old tooth did by using comprehensive and accurate imaging along with lifelike materials. This will not only ensure that you’ll be able to bite more comfortably, but that you can smile more easily, knowing that your new crown is functional and natural looking.
