Your smile should reflect the renewal of springtime. If you are uncomfortable with smiling, dental crowns are the perfect option for renewing your teeth this season. Crowns can be used for both aesthetic and medical purposes, and are simple caps that cover the tooth from top to bottom. There are many benefits to crowns and how they can improve your smile and your quality of life.

Relief From Discomfort

If there is damage to a tooth's structure or enamel, or if you have an infection in the tooth root, extensive decay, or some type of oral trauma that causes a tooth to break or chip, it is likely that you will feel sore and your teeth will ache. Even with a filling, there may still be some pain and discomfort, so a crown can be used to prevent sensitivity and strengthen the tooth.

Simple Procedure

Unlike many restorative procedures, the crown is easy to place. The process is straightforward and minimally invasive. The enamel is cleaned, and the tooth is shaped by the dentist to the point where it can hold a crown. An impression of the tooth is then taken and sent to a lab that makes the crown. A temporary crown is placed over your tooth until the permanent crown is ready, and then it is placed permanently, and your tooth is stronger.

Custom Made

Dental crowns are often created to match the color of your existing teeth. This makes them appear more natural and enhances your teeth. Crowns can fix stained, crooked, cracked, chipped, fractured, discolored, or misshapen teeth.
