We all want to start the new year off with a fresh start. To some, this may be a trip to the dentist for a smile makeover. Some may need a whitening treatment, others may need more cosmetic treatments to improve their grin. A crown is an option that may be presented to the patient to improve upon or completely replace a flawed tooth. A crown is simply a cap placed over a tooth to restore its strength and appearance. Crowns have several uses such as to protect a weak or broken tooth. Also, crowns are used to cover a large filling or help support a bridge. Here are the top ten reasons why your dental professional will present this as a proper way to get the smile you’re looking for:
Natural Looking. Porcelain and composite crowns have the look and feel of natural teeth, making your dental work completely discreet.
Durable. If treated well and oral hygiene is kept up, crowns can last up to fifteen years.
Stain-Resistant. Made from porcelain, so stains cannot penetrate and discolor them.
Cosmetic. Improve the look of broken, cracked or discolored teeth while enhancing your overall appearance.
Non-slipping. Crowns are cemented or anchored in place.
Protection. Crowns protect the tooth from further decay.
Restorative. Restores full function of your damaged tooth.
Comfort. Stable and do not irritate gums like partial dentures.
Speech. Missing teeth and dentures can affect speech. A dentist uses a crown to replace the missing teeth and do not slip around, making speech sound clearer.
Confidence. Damaged, discolored or missing teeth causes confidence issues. Crowns help to make your smile beautiful again.
