If you have a damaged or missing tooth, your dental professional will likely suggest a dental crown. No, it isn’t a sparkly hat, but it will make you feel like royalty when your smile is good as new. Dental crowns are custom made caps placed over a damaged tooth or dental implant to restore the color, look, shape and size of the damaged or missing tooth. There are many benefits that stem from dental crowns, the following list consists of the top benefits of dental crowns:
Natural-looking. Composite resin and porcelain crowns resemble natural teeth because they blend in with your natural teeth, creating the illusion of a healthy, bright smile.
Durable. Dental crowns typically last between 15-30 years, so practice proper oral hygiene and avoid bad habits to ensure that your dental crowns lasts.
Don’t slip. Unlike dentures, crowns stay in place because they are either cemented over a tooth or implant, or anchored in place.
Comfort. Unlike dentures or dental bridges, which can cause pain or discomfort because they sit on top of your gums and jawbone, dental crowns are stable and will not irritate your gums or cause discomfort.
Increases confidence. Having damaged or missing teeth can make some people feel less confident and self-conscious about their smile. Restoring teeth with dental crowns can help increase a patient’s overall confidence.
Improved speech. Having missing teeth or dentures that don’t fit just right can affect your speech, and missing teeth can cause jaw bone deterioration. Restoring your damaged or missing teeth with dental crowns can help you speak more confidently.
