Dental Crowns – Strengthen and Improve Your Teeth!

If your teeth have fallen into disrepair, then it’s time to take action. Whether your teeth are stained, misshapen, cracked, decayed or otherwise damaged then there’s options for you. Some choose veneers, others choose to whiten their teeth, but for many, the options of crowns work best.

What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a sort of topper or cap that can be put on top of a damaged tooth to restore its appearance or function. They can strengthen a tooth and keep it in working order for years to come.

How Are They Placed?

Dental crowns are placed very quickly and without much discomfort. The affected tooth can be cleaned and shaped so that the crown can go on without any problems. Then a crown is created and customized to perfectly fit onto your natural tooth base.

What Are Crowns Made Out Of?

Crowns can be made out of various materials. Some of the most popular are resin, stainless steel, resin, porcelain, and other metallic materials. While these materials vary in appearance, they are all strong and capable of adapting to your teeth perfectly. Those who prefer the look of a natural tooth often choose the porcelain or resin material option.

How Long Can Dental Crowns Last?

Depending on your own personal habits and the level of care you provide your teeth, your crown could last anywhere from five years to a lifetime. It’s important to remember that your crown should be cared for just like your other teeth with brushing and flossing daily.
