Learn about dental crowns from your Clifton dentist.
Damaged tooth? A dental crown will give your damaged tooth a second chance. A dental crown is a "cap" that replaces the exterior portion of a tooth to re-establish its original shape and function. Dr. Toan Bui at Transcendental in Clifton, NJ, offers a complete range of dental services, including crowns. Here are some reasons not to delay getting a crown.
1. Restore Your Tooth
Dental crowns are used to restore broken, chipped, cracked, decayed, and damaged teeth. A tooth that has been damaged can be saved by covering it with a dental crown. When a tooth is severely damaged, the tooth become weaker. This leaves it prone to further damage unless your dentist does something to preserve it.
2. Improve Your Smile
Dental crowns can improve the appearance of your teeth and create a natural appearance. They can instantly correct tooth discoloration. Porcelain dental crowns are beautiful and provide the best natural color of all the crowns. Nothing gives the same translucency, depth, and luster like porcelain crowns.
3. Strengthen Your Tooth
If your tooth has been severely damaged by decay, a filling can't replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A dental crown will make the damaged tooth stronger. All-metal crowns are made using gold or silver-colored dental alloys. Because this type of dental crown is made of metal, it will not break. Porcelain crowns and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are also very strong and can produce pleasing aesthetics.
4. Improve Oral Function
A tooth with decay or a broken tooth can make eating painful, interfering with oral function. A dental crown can restore the structure of the tooth so you can eat in comfort and with confidence. With a dental crown, you will experience a dramatic improvement in chewing ability and comfort.
5. Reduce Tooth Sensitivity
Tooth sensitivity is a common problem. Possible causes of tooth sensitivity include tooth decay, fractured teeth, worn tooth enamel, gum disease, worn fillings, and exposed tooth roots. Placing a dental crown can relieve uncomfortable symptoms of tooth damage, such as a sensitivity, toothache, and inflammation.
