Dental Crowns Will Improve Your Smile | Dumas Dentist

crownsHaving a dental issue is nothing unusual. There are plenty of reasons your tooth can get chipped, cracked or damaged, so it’s comforting to know that there is a fix when something happens. So, when something happens to break your teeth, you need to visit the dentist. Chances are, your dentist is going to suggest applying a crown to the damaged tooth.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength to improve its function and appearance. While typically used for cosmetic reasons, dental crowns may be beneficial in aiding a number of oral care areas, such as:

  • Protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Save a tooth that has been so damaged by decay that it can’t support a filling
  • Protect the teeth of a child at high risk for tooth decay, especially when a child has difficulty keeping up with daily oral hygiene
  • Decrease the frequency of sedation and general anesthesia

Dental crowns are fit to you personally and are customized to ensure they are as authentic as possible, as well as require as few as two dental visits.
