You have a cavity, and you’ve been putting off getting it treated.

Your teenage son broke his tooth when he missed a ball that was thrown his way during baseball practice.

And your daughter cracked one of her teeth when she bit down — hard — onto a pit she did not realize was still in an olive.

The good news is you can all get all of your family members’ teeth fixed with a dental crown at our office in Butte, MT. Our zirconium and e.max ceramic dental crowns can repair your smiles and restore the function of your teeth.

To make an appointment to get your own crown, call 406-565-4458 to reach Butte Family Dental.

Easy Care for Your Crowns

One of the best things about dental crowns is that they don’t require special care.

Your crown will look like a natural tooth, feel like a real tooth, and you’ll be able to clean it the same way you clean your remaining teeth as well.

You don’t need any special tools. You just need to remember to brush and floss like you should be doing for the rest of your teeth. (Many patients have told us that getting a crown inspired them to improve their daily oral care.)

Crowns are a versatile solution for a number of problems you may have. To give you some idea, crowns can be used to fix all of these things:

  • Broken and chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Decayed teeth

We know you may be thinking that you would get a filling rather than a crown. That’s true if you seek help before the cavity gets too big. If too much of your tooth has been damaged by decay or by repeated filling replacements, then a dental crown may be a better long-term solution.

Save the Rest of Your Smile

Getting a dental crown isn’t just good for your damaged tooth. It also can help save the rest of your smile.

If you lose a tooth, it can set the stage for additional tooth loss. Your remaining teeth can shift into the open space, and you can lose bone mass in your jaw. That combination can lead to more teeth coming loose or falling out.

You can prevent this from happening by combining crowns together to form a bridge, which will be attached to nearby teeth and fill the empty space in your smile.

Another option that we often recommended is getting a dental implant to replace the root of your lost tooth. The implant is embedded directly in your jawbone. This can help fight the bone loss that may occur when you lose a tooth.

Then, we can attach a crown to your implant to fill the vacant space in your smile and prevent the rest of your teeth from shifting.
