Using Dental Crowns to Repair the Smile and Restore Confidence

 

Dental Crown Houston, TXWhile the teeth are meant to last a lifetime, there are issues that can arise at times that may require the assistance of a quality dental team. In Houston, TX, patients can work with the dentists at Royal Dental to determine the best restoration to repair their smile when breakage or decay develop. One of the most common restorations used in dentistry today is the dental crown.

Dental crowns explained

The dentists at Royal Dental describe dental crowns as custom porcelain “caps” that bond over the top of the exposed area of tooth. The crown is meant to act as another layer of protection that can strengthen a tooth or cover its appearance. Dental crowns may also be used over the abutment of a dental implant to restore a missing tooth and address functionality that may have been lost when a tooth is damaged or extracted.

Why dental crowns?

Dental crowns have several benefits. They are fabricated with the patient in mind. The dentist ensures precision results by instructing the ceramic to make the restoration with the same shape, color, and size as the rest of the teeth in the smile. This allows for proper integration into the smile. Additionally, dental crowns are fabricated from porcelain, which is a material that closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. By using materials such as porcelain, dentists can help patients realize how aesthetic their new restoration will be when bonded in place. Dental crowns are also very strong and durable and are fabricated to withstand natural chewing and biting forces. They can crack, however, so it is important that patients avoid chewing or biting on hard items such as hard candies or ice cubes. This will improve the longevity of restorations as well as the natural teeth.
