A crown isn’t just something that you wear on your head. A dental crown is something that can benefit your mouth!
Dental crowns, also known as caps, cover and restore compromised teeth. Dr. Gordon Bell at The Center for Dental Excellence offers patients custom dental crowns made of porcelain.
If you have been wondering about dental crowns, then this article is for you. Read on as Dr. Bell explains the oral health and cosmetic benefits of dental crowns.
Alleviate Teeth Discomfort
We all know that regular dental exams are important to our overall oral health. Unfortunately, many of us put off dental appointments until we are in pain. Cracked or otherwise damaged teeth can cause discomfort, pain and increased sensitivity. Over time, this can actually lead to other health issues. Dental crowns can protect damaged teeth and alleviate associated discomfort and pain.
During the dental crown placement procedure, the doctor removes the damaged portions of the tooth. The dental crown is then placed over the tooth to create a strong and healthy structure. This same-day procedure offers immediate tooth restoration and pain relief for patients.
Maintain Existing Teeth
As mentioned above, cracked and damaged teeth can actually lead to other health issues. If damaged teeth are left untreated, patients risk further damage to the teeth and even tooth loss.
Dental crowns restore damaged teeth. If dental crowns are an option, then the patient is able to keep and maintain their existing teeth.
Improve the Appearance of Your Teeth
In addition to the health benefits, dental crowns also offer cosmetic benefits. Over time it is natural for teeth to change in appearance. Changes can include discoloration, altered shape, altered size, and the cracks and damage discussed above. When dental crowns are placed over teeth, they instantly conceal existing cosmetic issues, thus improving the tooth’s appearance.
Boost Your Confidence
It is easy to understand how cracked, misshapen and damaged teeth can impact our oral health. Even the slightest issue can turn into a big problem.
However, we often forget that damaged teeth can also damage our self-esteem. Dental concerns can impact our willingness to smile, openly laugh and speak in front of people. Dental crowns can help to restore and even improve the appearance of teeth. An improved appearance can help to boost confidence that was lost due to teeth concerns.
