Need a dental crown? A dental crown is a cap that replaces the exterior portion of a tooth to re-establish its original shape and function. Dental crowns are used to restore damaged teeth. Dr. Moutaz Abdeen of Alexandria Smiles Dentistry in Alexandria, VA, offers high-quality dental crowns to his patients. Here are four ways that dental crowns can improve your smile.
#1- Restore Damaged Teeth
If your tooth is damaged, see your dentist immediately. Otherwise, your tooth could be damaged further. Dental crowns are used to restore broken, chipped, badly decayed and cracked teeth. Dental crowns are also used to protect teeth following root canal therapy and as a part of a dental bridge.
#2- Strengthen Weak Teeth
When teeth are severely damaged by an infection, decay or trauma, the teeth become weaker. This leaves them prone to further damage unless your Alexandria dentist does something to preserve them. Dental crowns can strengthen your weakened tooth and prevent further damage.
#3- Beautify Your Smile
All-porcelain dental crowns are beautiful and provide the best natural color of all the crowns. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are also very strong and can produce pleasing aesthetics. Your dentist can choose from several shades and give you a crown that is better matched to the shade of your natural teeth.
#4- Improve Oral Function
It's difficult to eat when you have a damaged tooth. Damaged teeth can make eating painful, interfering with oral function. A crown will give you the ability chew all your favorite foods again. Crowns restore the structure of the teeth so you can eat in comfort and with confidence.
