If you have a tooth that’s badly cracked, decayed, or worn down, dental crowns might be the solution. If you have a tooth that’s badly stained or misshapen, a crown might be the solution for that too!
Crowns are an extremely adaptable dental tool that can do a little bit of everything, from aesthetic dentistry to restorative dentistry and more. We’re excited to be able to offer our patients traditional dental crowns to give them a healthier bite and a more attractive smile.
What Are Crowns?
Dental crowns are tight-fitting caps that are placed over natural teeth. At Lavender Dental Group, these caps are made of beautiful porcelain or ceramic, and they can restore your tooth (or multiple teeth) back to full functionality.
Your crown can be made to match the color of your natural teeth and blend in perfectly with your smile. Teeth with crowns also don’t require any more maintenance than your standard brushing, flossing, and dentist visits.
What Are the Benefits of Crowns?
Restoration | Dental crowns are great protection for damaged teeth. They’re often used to cover teeth that have experienced severe cavities, because these tight-fitting crowns can keep bacteria out and make sure the damaged tooth doesn’t experience fresh decay.
Protection | Crowns can also protect cracked or worn-down teeth. A crown can hold a tooth in place to keep cracks from getting worse, or can rebuild a tooth that has been ground down. In either of these cases, getting a crown now can prevent much worse dental damage, a misaligned bite, or having to replace the tooth entirely in the future.
Beauty | If you have a tooth that is stained, discolored, or misshapen, a crown can conceal those aesthetic issues and make you feel better about your smile. Whether you need a repair for health reasons or because you want to feel happy with your smile again, consider getting a crown.
