Crowns can be placed over cracked or damaged teeth and used to help improve weak teeth, making it easier for you to chew. This is an easy procedure that can significantly improve the way your smile looks and functions.
Dental By Nature has been using crowns to improve patient’s smiles in the greater Longmont area for over 22 years. Call us today at (303) 776-6021 to see what dental crowns can do for you.
What is a dental crown?
Crowns are made from multiple materials including porcelain, ceramics, and composite resin. We combine these substances to make a cap to place on your tooth. They are carefully crafted to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth.
Why do I need a dental crown?
Crowns are used to strengthen weak teeth, which when left exposed, can jeopardize your surrounding teeth and potentially your overall oral health. They are also used to enhance the look of your smile.
What does a dental crown actually do?
If you have an exposed tooth or very little of your real tooth left, especially after the removal of a cavity or root canal procedure, crowns can help strengthen and protect your tooth.
You can improve the look of your appearance by placing a crown over a misshapen or stained tooth.
Weak teeth are more prone to breaking and tooth decay. Dental crowns can cover a tooth to add support and keep your tooth healthy.
Dental crowns restore the feel, look, and function of weak or damaged teeth.
Dental crowns provide an alternative to a partial denture or dental implants for substituting teeth. Crowns can also help secure a dental bridge.
If you need a dental implant, crowns can be placed over the artificial teeth root, securing and allowing it to function like your other natural teeth.
How do I take care of a dental crown?
You can continue with your same oral routine, just be sure to clean your crown well. It's important to the health of your teeth that you brush twice a day and floss once.
Avoid Hard Foods
We recommend staying away from hard foods that can potentially harm your crown. Also, avoid chewing on objects like pencils.
It’s essential to schedule routine appointments so we can see if your dental crown is working as it should and there are no signs of damage or premature wear.
It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene to protect your crown and other teeth from cavities and harmful bacteria. We suggest using a toothpaste and mouthwash that meet the American Dental Association standards for best results.
A crown might be just what your tooth needs to look and function like normal. To schedule an appointment for a dental crown, call us today at (303) 776-6021. Your trusted Longmont dentistry looks forward to helping you achieve a healthier and better-functioning smile.
