Chew over When To Choose Dental Crowns

If you’re not happy with the appearance or function of your teeth, then dental crowns may be the restorative relief you need. See how dental crowns can work wonders for your smile.

Why Dentists Recommend Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover damaged or decayed teeth to restore their beauty, shape, and strength. They are often recommended over other treatments like cosmetic dentistry veneers and cosmetic dentistry bonding because they improve both the form and function of a tooth. Dental crowns have become so popular that they are offered by practically every affordable dentist Capitol Heights. In general, dental crowns are used to:

  • Enhance the appearance of a misshaped, decayed, or discolored tooth
  • Restore a broken or badly-eroded tooth
  • Keep a weak tooth strong
  • Bond together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Hold a dental bridge tightly in place
  • Cover and support a diminishing tooth with a large filling
  • Conceal a dental implant
  • Protect a tooth after a root canal

Dental Crowns Are a Stronger, Longer-Lasting Treatment

According to dental experts, dental crowns tend to last up to 15 years or more. They last much longer than cosmetic dentistry bonding and are much more durable than cosmetic dentistry veneers, which are made out of thin sheets of porcelain. Of course, the life span of dental crowns depends on the wear and tear they take over time, as well as your dental habits and daily care.

The Carefree Care of Dental Crowns

The care demanded by dental crowns is the same as for natural teeth. This means practicing good oral hygiene habits, including twice-daily brushing, flossing every day, being gentle on your teeth, and seeing an affordable dentist Capitol Heights for check-ups and cleanings twice a year.
