Everyone deserves a smile that is not only strong but also beautiful. Tooth decay and other dental issues can cause even the brightest smile to lose its charm. If you have a tooth with a big cavity, it may need a dental crown and these caps are strong and durable! Our dentist offers comprehensive dental care for all your needs in one location.
Dental crowns are great when you need to fix a tooth and protect it from damage. This thin, tooth-shaped cap will keep your teeth from getting worse. If your teeth have been damaged from decay or injury, crowns can be a long-term solution. A computer-aided design is often used for these crowns because they're cemented to the tooth permanently and can withstand all the wear and tear.
If you're worried about a tooth being damaged or want to protect it from damage in the future, crowns are the way to go. There are two places where crowns can be placed: on the top of a tooth or on the backside of the tooth with a root canal. The options for material depend on placement as well as which side of your mouth the crown will be put on. Regardless of material or placement, a crown will give you your smile back and make you happy.
Dental crowns are designed to withstand normal, day to day, wear and tear but maintaining good oral health is important. They can last between 10 and 15 years and in some cases even longer based on the quality of your oral hygiene. Regular checkups, cleanings, and proper brushing of both your gums and teeth can help extend the life of your dental crown.
If you are prone to grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw, our dentists recommend wearing a night guard while you’re sleep to assist in the longevity of your crown.
