Dental crowns can do so much for you and your smile, from strengthening weak or damaged teeth to concealing cosmetic flaws. Crowns can even replace missing teeth when placed on top of a dental implant. At Western Slope Dental Center in Grand Junction, CO, Dr. Brandon Berguin, Dr. Kira Funderburk, and Dr. William Berguin are your dentists for dental crowns.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a protective cap placed over a problem tooth to conceal imperfections or to strengthen and restore the tooth. Once in place, a dental crown completely encapsulates the tooth it is concealing or protecting. Each dental crown is custom made for the specific tooth it will cover. The size, shape, and color of the dental crown can be customized for a natural look and a perfect fit. Once in place, a dental crown looks just like a natural tooth. Your dentist in Grand Junction can help you decide if they are right for you.
How Dental Crowns Help
There are many ways in which dental crowns help. They can address several restorative and cosmetic dental concerns. For example, damaged or infected teeth that have been repaired through root canal treatment can be protected against further damage with dental crowns. Dental crowns can also strengthen those same teeth following root canal treatment so the teeth can resume normal biting and chewing functions with no pain or sensitivity. Other ways dental crowns help include:
- Concealing stains and discolorations
- Correcting the shape of oddly shaped teeth
- Repairing cracked or chipped teeth
- Restoring normal biting and chewing functions
- Strengthening weak and damaged teeth
- Protecting teeth from further damage
Another way dental crowns can help is by replacing missing or extracted teeth. When placed over a dental implant, a dental crown serves as an artificial tooth that looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
