Dental crowns are becoming increasingly popular by the day. They can be used after various dental procedures and if you want to preserve most of your natural tooth then this is a great way to get started. If you want to learn more about dental crowns, visit our office at Santa Clarita Advanced Dentistry so our professionals can help you understand how these crowns can benefit you.
One of the major advantages of getting dental crowns is that they look good. Many people hold off from getting dental crowns because they believe that one tooth will have two different shades of white when a crown is placed over it. However, this is not what happens when we place dental crowns. We ensure that the color of the dental crown matches the color of your tooth perfectly so that it looks like one single tooth rather than two pieces put together. These crowns replicate natural teeth and even if you need to replace them over one of your front teeth, you will be able to do so and smile confidently.
One of the major concerns people have when talking to us about dental crowns is if they will be able to chew their food efficiently once the crown has been placed. Since dental crowns are permanent fixtures, they become one with your tooth and manage to fulfill the functionality a natural tooth would. If you were worried about not being able to enjoy your favorite food once you have a dental crown fitted, this is something you don't have to worry about because you will still be able to enjoy all kinds of food without a worry.
One of the major uses of a dental crown is to protect an exposed tooth after a dental procedure. Although some people believe that a small portion of a natural tooth doesn't hold too much value and is of no use, it isn't just about the tooth. You also need to think about the root. If the root of the tooth is strong, then extracting would simply mean weakening the neighboring teeth as well. If you want your teeth to stay strong, it's important to look after the roots and a dental crown manages to do that perfectly.
Dental crowns are one of the most versatile dental fixtures you can get. They can be fixed over almost any tooth in your mouth and they can be shaped and colored based on the shape and color of your tooth.
Easy To Get Used To
Dental crowns are permanent fixtures over your natural tooth and many people believe that it might be difficult to get used to this fitting. The truth however is that dental crowns are easy to get used to and within just a few short days, you won’t even be able to tell you have a crown at all.
