You know your teeth aren’t perfect, but you don’t see any need for restorative dental treatment right now.
After all, you’re not in pain. You don’t have any problems chewing your food.
And as far as you know, you don’t have any health issues going on inside your mouth.
That’s why your latest dental exam took you by surprise.
You were told you need a dental crown for a tooth that’s too weak or damaged to last much longer on its own.
It’s not a front tooth, but it’s far enough up front that you can easily see it when you speak, smile, and laugh.
Believe it or not, this is no reason to panic about your appearance!
A new dental crown is the closest thing to a cure-all for your smile as you can get in modern dentistry. It can:
*Replace a missing tooth
*Cover up a decayed tooth
*Seal an infected tooth after a root canal
*Protect a weak, damaged tooth
But that’s only the beginning of what these restorations can do at Butte Family Dental!
The Cosmetic Cures Of Dental Crowns
These are just a few of the ways a dental crown can act like a cosmetic cure for your smile!
Most of us can admit that the color of our teeth have changed as we’ve aged.
Years of dark foods and drinks, prescription medications, and other lifestyle choices will leave their mark eventually.
But there are teeth stains that go deeper, far beyond the surface of your tooth enamel that can’t really be fixed with whitening treatment.
For dental discoloration like this, you might benefit from a dental crown because they’re made to match the color of all your surrounding teeth.
This can help your smile look brighter, whiter, and healthier.
You don’t need to wear braces for the next 18 months to “move” your teeth into place.
You can actually rely on the visual trickery of dental crowns!
Capping teeth with dental crowns, no matter the reason, will hide the spaces between your teeth, making it appear as though you just finished up orthodontic treatment!
Throughout your lifetime, your teeth are inevitably going to change.
They can shift, become worn down, and yes, take on tiny surface damage from normal use that can worsen over time.
Not only will dental damage make you more susceptible to bad oral bacteria, but it’s not going to do your smile’s appearance any favors either!
Dental crowns repair teeth with cracks, chips, and other fractures by covering them up and protecting them well into the future so those compromised areas don’t get wider, deeper, or visibly worse.
Unfortunately, healthy teeth don’t guarantee a great-looking smile.
They can be misshapen, rough around the edges, and disproportionate compared to the rest.
Any of these issues make your smile look inconsistent.
Dental crowns, however, cap those sort of stand-out cosmetic problems and give your smile attractive, visual consistency.
