What are the Benefits of Dental Crowns?

They bring numerous significant benefits to your oral health. With the help of a crown, a natural tooth can often be saved from extraction, preserving its integrity. Dental crowns restore your smile to a state of health, functionality, and beauty. The following are the advantages of dental crowns:

Restore Teeth Appearance

Dental crowns offer cosmetic advantages. By fitting over your natural tooth, crowns swiftly address discoloration, chips, fractures, and misshapen teeth. This ability to instantly enhance the appearance of teeth makes dental crowns a popular choice for achieving cosmetic dental goals.

Relieve Dental Discomfort

Dental crowns play a crucial role in restorative treatments. They help to repair damaged enamel or structural issues in teeth. These problems can lead to tooth sensitivity when exposed to temperature or pressure. After addressing the underlying issue, such as through a root canal or filling, it becomes essential to safeguard the remaining portion of the tooth. A dental crown serves as a protective barrier, preventing the tooth from further damage and reducing sensitivity.

Reinforce a Bridge

Losing a tooth can be a frustrating experience for adults. Whether it occurred during an adventurous moment or if a permanent tooth failed to grow after the baby tooth fell out. A dental bridge provides an ideal solution in such situations. It anchors and connects to the adjacent teeth, creating a bridge supporting the replacement tooth. This enables you to restore your smile without the need for dentures, as the bridge provides a secure and natural-looking replacement.

Dental Crowns are Durable

Dental crowns are crafted from durable materials specifically designed to withstand the rigors of grinding, biting, and chewing food. With proper oral hygiene practices and regular dental examinations, crowns can last for an extended period. Most crowns can surpass 30 years of longevity.
