How Will A Crown Protect My Tooth?

What will it take to keep your tooth safe after it is injured, or after you experience problems with serious tooth decay? Dental fillings are often effective against cavities, but they are limited in the amount of harm they can address. Fortunately, there is something that your dentist can offer that will provide long-term protection as well as coverage that benefits your smile. Dental crowns made from the right materials can provide the functional support you need as well as coverage that lets you bite and chew like normal. Sunny Smiles can provide a restoration that can be relied on to remain secure and supportive, and we can also talk to you about more conservative forms of care that you may qualify for that preserve more of your tooth structure.

Why Some Oral Health Issues Require Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are needed when teeth require serious protection. They may need this support due to advanced dental decay, or it can become necessary because there are issues with physical trauma that must be addressed. You can find out what sort of support you need during an evaluation. If you do find that you need a dental crown to restore your tooth, know that we can provide one that is ready to keep it safe, take on bite pressure on its behalf, and even serve to fit in with your smile and preserve how you look!

Using A Custom Crown To Take Care Of Your Appearance

A custom crown that is made from porcelain or zirconia will offer the kind of look that makes you comfortable with your appearance after restorative dental work. These materials are both capable of providing cosmetic benefits as well as functional support, though zirconia can offer greater protection. Your restoration will be carefully made to make sure that it fits over your tooth and avoids causing problems with its neighbors. To ensure this, we will take detailed measurements during a preliminary appointment.

A Cosmetic Treatment Can Take On Some Problems With Dental Damage

Dental injuries can sometimes be addressed through cosmetic dentistry. If you qualify for care with a porcelain veneer instead of a crown, you can go through less preparatory work, and you can still see the improvements that you want to your appearance. Veneers are thin, durable shells that make improvements while only covering the front surfaces of teeth.
