Dental Crown Excellence For Hampton Roads
Also called a “cap“, a dental crown is a long-lasting artificial cover for a tooth. It can be made of gold or other metals, porcelain or ceramic, or a combination of metal and porcelain. A ceramic or porcelain crown can be made to look like a perfectly natural tooth! At Port Warwick Dental Arts, our preferred choice for a crown is porcelain, due to its beauty, strength, and biocompatibility.
A dental crown may be the only preferred option available when a tooth has become severely damaged or decayed, or has had root canal therapy. Preparation for a dental crown does require that the tooth be slightly reshaped so that the crown can be fitted and cemented onto the tooth. Dental crowns can last for many years if properly cared for.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Some of the reasons that a dental crown might be right for you include:
- Durability | Crowns have been shown in studies to last longer than any other type of dental restoration, including all types of fillings and implants.
- Protection | Dental crowns offer excellent protection for teeth that have been severely cracked or broken, damaged by tooth decay, or worn down. When bonded, they can often restore a tooth to its original strength.
- Aesthetics | Stained or misshapen teeth can be aesthetically improved using crowns.
- Function | Crowns can restore length and improve discrepancies in the bite, which may otherwise lead to tooth fractures.
