How crowns can help you smile
If you have a cracked, chipped, worn-down or cavity-stricken tooth, a dental crown may help you smile again. Dental crowns literally put a cap on your tooth’s problem areas. In fact, they can be designed to look like your original tooth and even to blend in naturally with surrounding teeth. At Personal Choice Dental in Old Bridge, N.J., a family dentist can help you decide whether a dental crown is the best restoration choice for you.
Family Dentists Choose the Perfect Crown for You
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that replace decaying or weak teeth above the gum line. They can restore the most worn down and decayed tooth to its original shape, size, appearance and, even, strength. The family dentists at Personal Choice Dental’s Old Bridge office want to create a crown that both looks and feels good in your mouth. They have the knowledge to choose the material that works best for each patient’s situation.
Your Tooth Will Look and Feel Good Again
Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including metal alloys, porcelain, ceramics, composite resin or combinations of these materials. When a patient has front teeth in need of being capped, Personal Choice Dental’s family dentists can choose the material that will blend best with the shade and shape of existing teeth so that nobody will even notice the cap. Moreover, patients with new crowns don’t have to worry about replacing them anytime soon because they tend to last longer than other cosmetic dental restorations.
Crowns Cover a Variety of Problems
Dental crowns can address a variety of issues that may be causing your teeth and your smile to be less vibrant. Sometimes they are used to strengthen and cover a tooth consumed by fillings, especially when there isn’t enough of the natural tooth left to hold the filling. They also provide a solution for a discolored or misshapen tooth, covering up trouble spots with a shiny new replacement. In addition, crowns are used to attach bridges, prevent weak teeth from cracking, rebuild already-broken teeth and conceal dental implants.
