Dental crowns are bonded to your damaged tooth in order to help restore oral health and to help improve the appearance of your smile. At Town Center Dentistry & Orthodontics, we often recommend a porcelain dental crown to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling. We also use dental crowns to top off a dental implant.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain, that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can often be the best choice to recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
A crown will replace the external portion of a tooth down the the gum-line in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Stapleton dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth, weakened from decay, from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able able to enjoy chewing without pain and be able to smile with confidence again.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years. It depends on the wear and tear the dental crown is exposed to and if you take care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing.
A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups with Dr. Brett Kessler at Town Center Dentistry & Orthodontics are important!
