Dental Crown Treatment to Improve the Appearance and Health of Your Teeth
Your teeth may be the strongest part of your body, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t susceptible to damage. Accidents, tooth decay, and poor habits like tooth clenching may lead to tooth damage, impeding your oral health. Thankfully, you can always turn to Bingham-Lester Dentistry in Crofton, Maryland, to restore your failing teeth with natural-looking dental crowns.
How a dental crown works
Unlike a veneer, a dental crown covers your entire tooth to add resilience to it or improve its shape. Also known as tooth caps, dental crowns restore the functionality and appearance of decayed, cracked, or worn down teeth.
But will I not lose my natural smile? This is usually a concern of many patients when they hear about dental crowns. Dental crowns can be made from numerous materials, including gold and metal. While these materials are durable and strong, we prefer porcelain material because it’s equally durable but is far more natural-looking than its counterparts.
Porcelain crowns can be fabricated to match the natural color of your enamel to eliminate chances of “fake-looking” tooth appliances.
The many functions of a dental crown
A dental crown doesn’t receive the plaudits it deserves. This appliance may be tiny, but it has numerous cosmetic and non-cosmetic functions. Dr. Vickii Bingham-Lester may recommend a dental crown to address several dental challenges. You need a dental crown to:
- Complete a dental implant process
- Aesthetically improve a severely stained tooth
- Anchor a dental bridge in place
- Improve the health and shape of a damaged or decayed tooth
- Protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
After a dental crown treatment, you don’t have to lose your damaged or otherwise failing tooth. We can restore your compromised tooth to its full functionality with strong and natural-looking dental crowns.
