Dental crowns are one of the most commonly used dental devices. They’re placed directly on top of teeth that are weakened or damaged, and they strengthen them and improve their appearance.
At 101st Adult Dentistry, we strongly believe in the benefits of crowns, and we install crowns on the teeth of many of our patients every month. If you’ve been told you need a crown or multiple crowns, here are some of the benefits you’ll enjoy if you have them installed.
Crowns Reduce and Eliminate Pain
When teeth are weakened and damaged, they become extremely sensitive. That’s because there’s less separating the nerves that connect teeth to the gums from sugars, acids, and extreme temperatures in food and drinks. When crowns are placed on top of teeth, they seal off the nerves, protecting them from irritants the same way that natural, healthy teeth do.
Crowns Are Easy to Install
Getting a crown installed over a single tooth or multiple teeth is an easy and straightforward procedure. It involves cleaning the teeth, removing damaged parts, shaping them in preparation for the crown, and placing a temporary crown for around two weeks. After two weeks, the permanent crown is ready to be placed.
Crowns Are Custom Made to Match Surrounding Teeth
You may worry that your crown will look out of place in your mouth next to your natural teeth. Have no fear—crowns are custom made to match existing teeth as closely as possible in both size, shape, and color. The type of crown work we provide is completely unnoticeable, and unless pointed out, no one will know your crown even exists.
Crowns Restore Smiles
Teeth can take a lot of abuse over time. They can become stained, chipped, cracked, or broken. Smiles look best when they are uniform, and even a single out of place tooth can ruin an otherwise beautiful smile. Getting a crown installed is a simple and highly effective way to instantly make your stained or damaged tooth match the rest of your healthy teeth.
Crowns Are Designed to Last
When you go in for a dental procedure, you want the results to last a long time. That’s exactly what you get with a dental crown. When dental crowns are well cared for via regular brushing, flossing, and dental checkups, they can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years or beyond. In addition, because dental crowns are made of synthetic material, they’re not susceptible to cavities and decay like normal teeth are.
