Dental Crowns

Dental CrownsWhile dental crowns may not have the luster of the crowns of royalty, they can have a powerful effect on saving your smile. Often when we don’t take proper care of our teeth, they can wear away and lose their strength and shape. There are a number of things that can contribute to tooth decay including skipping regular dental visits, eating hard candy and the obvious: not brushing one’s teeth.

When our teeth wear away, break off, or deteriorate due to cavities, we can place a crown to cover, protect or restore the broken or decayed teeth. Dental crowns can even be used cosmetically to cover up other implants or discolored teeth.

The material that your crown is made of is dependent on many factors, such as severity of tooth decay or location of the tooth in your mouth, but generally, crowns are made up of the following:

  • Porcelain, usually more esthetically pleasing
  • A durable plastic
  • Metal: gold, nickel or chromium

Dental crowns can generally be placed in a couple of visits. And if properly taken care of, can last for years without being replaced.

Call our office to see if your mouth deserves a crown.
