Cap a Damaged or Decayed Tooth with a Dental Crown
A dental crown is bonded to a tooth in order to restore your smile, and improve its appearance.
At Reich Dental Center, we often recommend a dental crown to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling or to top off a dental implant. Our easy-going staff can have you back on track with your new dental crown in just one appointment!
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain, that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can be the right choice to recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down the the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Smyrna and Roswell dental teams may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth, weakened from decay, from breaking
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able able to enjoy chewing without pain and be able to smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years. It depends on the wear and tear the dental crown is exposed to and if a patient takes care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing. A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at our [Practice Name] are important!
