4 Ways You Can Benefit from a Dental Crown

Do you have a broken or cracked tooth? An existing crown in need of replacement? Bite issues? Soft or weak teeth? Staining? Or do you just long to have a more beautiful smile? If so, dental crowns can help. Dental crowns not only fix a multitude of dental problems, but they can restore your smile, giving you more confidence. If you’re considering undergoing a dental crown procedure, here are four ways a dental crown can benefit your smile.  

1. Dental crowns protect damaged teeth.

If you have any teeth that are broken or severely cracked, you are likely a prime candidate to receive a dental crown. By completely encasing the damaged tooth, a dental crown protects your tooth from further damage or trauma. Additionally, dental crowns help shield your natural teeth from the detrimental effects of acid, sugar and discoloration.

2. Dental crowns keep your teeth healthy.

Without the protection of a dental crown, a damaged or cavity-ridden teeth will continue to erode. By fitting a dental crown over a damaged tooth, a dentist can add years or decades to the life of your tooth. The quality of dental crowns continues to increase with time and patients now have a variety of options from which to choose. Take for example, porcelain fused to metal crowns, which are a particularly good option for the back teeth because molars require strength and durability.

3. Dental crowns enhance the appearance of your teeth.

Because a dental crown completely encases your tooth, it will cover any cracks, cavities or other visible imperfections. A porcelain dental crown is prepared to bear a very close resemblance to your natural tooth color and nearly always improves the overall appearance of a damaged tooth.

4. Dental crowns can help you save money.

By protecting your teeth from damage and extending the life of your natural smile, dental crowns help you save money. While there is an initial expense associated with the cost of the dental crown preparation, a dental crown will help you save money by reducing the number of dental visits required for the treatment of that tooth.
