5 Reasons to Consider Dental Crowns

Dental crowns cover your teeth completely and give you a pleasing smile. You could consider dental crowns for a variety of reasons, both restorative and cosmetic, but the following are the top five reasons to consider dental crowns.

  1. The first reason to consider dental crowns is to change the way that your tooth looks. This could be because the tooth is so badly stained that it will not respond to whitening treatments, or because the tooth is misshapen. The dental crown covers and conceals the damage so that your tooth looks normal.
  2. The second of our reasons to consider dental crowns is in cases where a patient has had a deep filling, causing the tooth to become fragile. The crown protects the remaining structure of the tooth, allowing you to bite and chew normally.
  3. One of the best reasons to consider dental crowns is to hold cracked teeth together. Crowns go all the way from the top of the tooth to the gum line, so they provide support to the damaged structure. Without the crown, the cracks could get worse, and you could end up with a broken tooth. So it just makes sense to get the crown before that happens.
  4. Another reason to get crowns is in order to support a dental bridge. Usually, the teeth on either side of the gap will receive crowns in order to provide support for the prosthetic tooth or teeth that are created to fill the gap.
  5. Finally, even children can receive crowns to protect damaged teeth and to improve functionality if they are having problems with their bite.

So, there you have five reasons to consider dental crowns. Whatever your reason, you can be assured that having dental crowns installed will improve both the appearance and the functionality of your mouth.
