Teeth significantly weakened due to dental work, such as a root canal or extensive decay, can benefit from the protection of a strong, durable dental crown. But did you know that dental crowns also provide benefits to those individuals dealing with cosmetic dental issues as well? When you visit Drs. Kisha Carter and Jaime Kim at BLUSH Dental Studio in East Point, Georgia, with a cosmetic dental concern, a dental crown could be recommended as a viable treatment option.
Because a dental crown completely encapsulates a tooth, it can conceal several cosmetic dental issues, including discoloration, stains, cracks, chips, and more. A dental crown can be custom crafted from porcelain to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth. Dental crowns can discreetly conceal these embarrassing issues, allowing you to smile and show off your teeth without worrying about anybody noticing your dental crown.
Many different cosmetic treatments are available to patients, so why would you choose a dental crown to conceal cosmetic imperfections? Here are some of the benefits which dental crowns offer.
Dental crown procedures may seem intensely complicated. But they are actually minimally invasive and pretty straightforward. Some preparation of your tooth will be required, including cleaning the enamel and removing any damaged tissue.
Impressions will be taken and sent into a laboratory, where the crown will be custom crafted. While you wait, a temporary crown will be placed so you can eat and function as usual. You will then return to the dentist when the permanent crown is ready to be placed. Your temporary crown will be removed, and the permanent one will be placed using dental cement to hold it in place. Some final adjustments may need to be made so that it fits your bite perfectly.
At BLUSH Dental Studio, our team will design your crown to perfectly match your natural tooth’s shape, size, and color. Once your dental crown is placed, you will likely forget you even have it, and people will never be able to tell it is in place.
Dental crowns are thought of as a restorative treatment for weakened teeth. Because a crown completely covers your tooth, it is also perfect for concealing many cosmetic dental issues, including discoloration. Dental crowns can also instantly correct misshapen teeth, fractures, cracks, and more.
The materials used to craft dental crowns are durable and can withstand the constant pressures exerted on your teeth when you eat or bite. As long as you follow a good oral hygiene regimen and don’t have bad habits such as biting hard objects, your crown should last you for years.
