Webster Cosmetic Dentistry explains the advantages of dental crowns

Your smile may be one of the first things people notice about you. First impressions are important, so it’s best to present a clean, healthy, bright smile. If your teeth aren’t looking as nice as you’d like, ask your dentist for recommendations for improvement.

Dental crowns are one of the best options for restoring a tooth’s shape, size, and strength, all of which can improve its appearance. Crowns can also attach bridges, protect a weakened tooth from breaking, or completely restore one that has already become cracked or broken. Crowns can also cover teeth that are discolored or have a strange shape, and they can be used to cover a dental implant.

The crown itself is a little cap shaped like a tooth that sits over top of the original (or partial) tooth. Once cemented into place, a crown fully covers the portion of the original tooth that is visible at and above the gum line.

There are many reasons why a patient might require a dental crown. A crown can keep a tooth that’s been weakened by decay from breaking apart, or can restore a previously broken tooth. Teeth that have been worn down from grinding benefit from crowns. Cosmetic modifications are possible with crowns.

Even children can have a crown placed on a baby tooth to save it, in the event the weakened tooth may not be able to support a filling. Crowns can protect the teeth of children with a high risk of tooth decay.

Teeth that have crowns aren’t protected from gum disease or tooth decay. A good oral hygiene routine must be followed, including brushing teeth, flossing, and rinsing with an antibacterial mouthwash every day, and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups. Dental crowns can definitely help make your smile healthy and beautiful! For more information, please contact:
