The prosthodontists at Dental Solutions of Binghamton have the training and experience needed to restore your smile with natural looking solutions that can last for years to come. Smile solutions can address issues ranging from the complex that require an entire mouth restoration to a more streamlined need such as a single dental implant.
When considering restorative solutions for minor tooth decay or damage, dental crowns are an excellent method to safeguard your teeth from further damage. In addition, they can enhance your smile through cosmetic improvements like restructuring your teeth’s shape and size. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, dental crowns are considered to be the most common restorative procedure. Approximately 2.3 million implant-supported crowns are made annually.
Review the list below to better understand the additional benefits of utilizing dental crowns for simple to complex options in restorative dental care.
1. Protects the Inner Tooth from Harm
A damaged tooth exposes the inner tooth—composed of the dentin and pulp—to various external factors. As a result, bacteria can readily enter and infect the inner tooth, causing pain and irritation. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over your tooth, and act as a protective shield preventing any kind of germs from entering the inner tooth. The damaged inner tooth can also get sensitive to hot and cold items. A dental crown on top can protect from potentially irritable substances.
2. Secures Fractured Tooth
A cracked tooth never heals on its own. It only widens and deepens over time, causing more damage to the tooth’s structure. If a dental filling won’t adequately restore the structural integrity of the tooth, a dental crown can be the answer. Covering a tooth with a dental crown prevents acids in the mouth from getting into the crack and expanding it. A dental crown also secures the tooth, protecting the tooth from falling apart due to the force of a bite caused when chewing.
3. Improves Dental Aesthetics
A dental crown can entirely transform the appearance of your mouth. Dental crowns are often utilized to fix a number of cosmetics problems such as misshapen teeth, uneven teeth, mild overcrowding, gaping, and permanent stains. The team at Dental Solutions of Binghamton will modify the shape, size and color of your dental crowns to deliver the cosmetic result you desire for a beautiful and confident smile.
4. Replace a Missing Tooth when paired with a Dental Implant
A dental crown, when paired with a dental implant, offers a dental restoration that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth. In addition, the dental implant crown works to preserve the health of the bone where the implant is placed by reducing further deterioration of the jawbone surrounding the implant.
