Advanced Dentistry of Morton Grove recommends dental crowns to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a dental filling, or for those who are getting dental implants. Regardless of the diagnosis, our entire dental team is here to ensure that your dental crown process is as comfortable and quick as possible.
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 helps recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The tooth crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down to the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Morton Grove dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Cover a dental implant
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth that has been 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 dental 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 to chew without pain and smile with confidence.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years depending on the wear and tear and on whether 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 Advanced Dentistry are key!
