The Benefits Of Dental Crowns

Posted on 7/10/2023 by Office of Dr. James A. Krippaehne
The Benefits Of Dental CrownsPeople with severely decaying or damaged teeth may benefit from dental crowns, a frequent dental procedure. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap put over a damaged tooth to improve its appearance and restore its size, shape, and strength. Porcelain, metal, and ceramic are just a few materials that can create crowns. Here are the benefits of dental crowns:

Protection And Preservation Of Teeth

With the use of dental crowns, there is protection and preservation of damaged or decayed teeth. Large cavities, root canals, or fractures can weaken teeth to the point that they are susceptible to further harm and may need extraction. A crown can stop the tooth from decaying further and ultimately keep it from the need for extraction.

Additionally, dental crowns help safeguard teeth that have experienced severe enamel erosion. You can get it from acid reflux, teeth grinding, or overindulging in acidic foods and drinks.

Improved Appearance And Self-Esteem

Dental crowns can boost someone's self-esteem by making damaged or discolored teeth look better. Chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth can be ugly and impact how someone smiles. A dental crown can give an injured tooth a natural appearance. The appearance blends in with the neighboring teeth by restoring the tooth's form, size, and color. In addition, dental crowns can fill spaces between teeth and straighten up crooked or malformed teeth.

Long-lasting Results

Dental crowns are strong and resilient. With the proper upkeep and care, a crown can survive for many years, if not a lifetime. They are, therefore, an affordable option for healing damaged teeth.

Additionally, resistant to stains and deterioration, crowns are a solid choice for people looking for a long-term fix for their dental issues. Dental crowns should fit each person's particular dental structure, guaranteeing a snug fit that won't irritate or cause discomfort.
