Dental Crowns Can Restore A Damaged Smile

A dental crown is a restoration that we can use to protect a tooth. We tend to place crowns for patients who have encountered extensive tooth decay, or who have fillings that are too big to restore again, to strengthen a tooth following root canal therapy, or for teeth that are heavily cracked. In such cases, the crown is placed over the tooth to keep the tooth functional.

Crowns Won’t Become Discolored By Stains

Your crowns will be designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. But there is one advantage that crowns have over real teeth. Whereas teeth can stain with daily coffee intake, smoking, or simply the aging process, our crowns will not.

Crowns No Longer Need To Be Metallic

Some dental offices are primarily using metal in their dental crowns, even though this is completely unnecessary. While metal-based crowns are strong, patients who are stuck with these type of crowns often develop a gray line near their gum-line. This can be a little bit weird, which is why at North Oaks Dental, we use two types of dental crowns: porcelain and zirconia. The choice is yours. Both materials are prized for their natural appearance and durability.

Crowns Can Last A Long Time

We’re now able to make strong crowns that can last for many years, sometimes even decades. But your crown will not last forever. You see, a crown can fail for a lot of reasons including poor oral health, sudden trauma, or a crack or break. The good news is that as long as there is enough healthy tooth beneath the crown, we can replace the bad crown with another crown. If you’re nervous about any of this, you can choose from three kinds of dental sedation to ensure your comfort along the way.

Dental Crowns Can Be Used With Implants

A dental implant can be used to replace a missing tooth, or even to stabilize a set of dentures. Implants are among the most effective replacements because they function like real roots, and are almost as strong. And they can be restored with dental crowns so that they look just like your natural teeth. If you’ve already spoken to another dentist about a restorative service, and you didn’t like what they had to say, you can get a free second opinion from us.
