Dental Crowns Can Protect & Strengthen Your Smile
At South Point Dental in Airdrie, we know that dental crowns are an extremely popular way for patients to protect a tooth that's been seriously damaged or weakened by decay, cover a dental implant, and improve the look of their smile. If you’re looking to protect or strengthen your smile, a dental crown may be able to help!
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are caps that are placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, and strength. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these materials.
What are the benefits of dental crowns?
Dental crowns offer many benefits, including:
Protection for a compromised tooth: Dental crowns can protect a tooth that has been cracked, chipped, broken, or significantly weakened by decay.
They can improve the look of your smile: If you're not happy with the way your teeth look, dental crowns can help. Crowns can be used to cover stained or discolored teeth, and they can also be used to close gaps between teeth.
Support for a dental bridge: A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. The dental crowns on either side of the bridge serve as anchors to hold the bridge in place.
Covering a dental implant: A dental implant is a metal post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for a missing tooth. Once the implant has healed, a dental crown is placed on top of it, restoring function to a patient’s smile.
- Covering a tooth that's received root canal therapy: After a tooth has been treated with root canal therapy, a dental crown is generally placed over the tooth to protect it from further damage.
How should a dental crown be cared for?
With proper care, a dental crown can last for many years. To keep yours in good condition, practice good oral hygiene by brushing twice and flossing once a day. It's also important to see us for regular cleanings and checkups.
