Many people have dental crowns but are unaware of just how beneficial they are; as well as being amazingly flexible. At Rivercrest Family Dental in New Braunfels, TX we encourage all of our patients to consider the benefits of dental crowns when looking for a long-lasting form of restorative dentistry or even a cosmetic dentistry solution.
As your chosen dentist in New Braunfels, we might recommend the use of dental crowns for many issues, including:
- Teeth that are misshapen
- Discolored teeth unable to be whitened through traditional methods
- Teeth that are broken, cracked or at risk for breaking
- As part of a root canal
- As the final touch in a dental implant procedure
- Teeth with large amounts of decay, and which cannot be remedied with a filling
- Teeth that are having old amalgam (metal fillings) removed
Clearly, their flexibility as a solution to so many issues is one of the key benefits of dental crowns. However, that is not the end of the story. This is because another of the notable benefits of dental crowns is their ease of application. In just two office visits, a patient can have a custom-made crown placed and ready for use.
Of course, that statement points out another of the many benefits of dental crowns, which is that they are made specifically for you. They are not a generic cover for a tooth but are instead made by our dental crowns specialist to be the same color, shape, size and fit for your mouth alone.
Crowns Shield a Tooth
It is also important to look at crowns, and their benefits, in terms of the coverage and support they offer over the long term. When a tooth is damaged or compromised, it is likely to continue to break down over time. This causes pain, makes it difficult to eat and often triggers people to feel very self-conscious. Yet, dental crowns can be used to end all of these issues. They are not rings around a tooth but a durable cap that covers the entire tooth (or what remains of it after treatment). This lets you keep the tooth, which ensures optimal health.
