Dental crowns are prosthetic devices used by The Art of Dentistry’s dentists to cover or cap a damaged or weakened tooth, restoring its shape, strength, and function.
The Art of Dentistry’s dental crowns offer several benefits for individuals with damaged or weakened teeth. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers a tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Here are some of the key benefits of having The Art of Dentistry’s dental crowns:
Restoration of Tooth Function: Crowns are used to repair teeth that have significant decay, fractures, or damage. By covering the tooth, they restore its function, allowing you to chew and bite without discomfort or pain.
Protection: Crowns provide a protective barrier for weakened teeth. They can prevent further damage and fracture by encasing the entire visible portion of the tooth.
Cosmetic Enhancement: Crowns can improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or have other cosmetic issues. They are often used for smile makeovers to create a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing look.
Longevity: Dental crowns are durable and can last for many years, often a decade or more, with proper care. This makes them a long-term solution for dental restoration.
Comfort: Crowns can help alleviate discomfort or sensitivity in damaged teeth by providing a protective covering that shields the underlying nerve from hot or cold stimuli.
Stability: Crowns can be used to anchor dental bridges in place, providing stability and preventing adjacent teeth from shifting out of position.
Support for Large Fillings: When a tooth has a large filling and little natural tooth structure remaining, a crown can help reinforce and support the remaining tooth structure, reducing the risk of further damage.
Natural Appearance: Modern dental crowns are designed to closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth in terms of color, shape, and translucency, making them virtually indistinguishable from surrounding teeth.
Improved Confidence: By restoring your dental health and enhancing your smile, crowns can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Versatility: Crowns can be used on various types of teeth, including molars, premolars, canines, and incisors, making them a versatile solution for a range of dental problems.
Minimally Invasive: In some cases, a crown can be placed with minimal removal of tooth structure, preserving more of your natural tooth compared to other restorative options.
It’s important to note that while dental crowns offer many benefits, they are not suitable for every dental issue. The Art of Dentistry’s dentists will evaluate your specific situation and determine whether a crown is the appropriate treatment or if other options, such as fillings or root canals, are more suitable.
