Have you begun experiencing discomfort when trying to enjoy meals, due to heightened sensitivity caused by severe tooth decay? Did you suffer an injury to your mouth, and now you are embarrassed by a chip or a crack in part of your smile? There are a number of potential situations that could create the need for restorative dentistry. Fortunately, porcelain dental crowns provide a wonderful way to address many of these issues, in a way that can improve both a patient’s comfort and the esthetics of the smile.
When Are Dental Crowns the Right Form of Restoration?
In many cases, dental cavities can often be treated through a minimally invasive form or restoration, such as a dental filling. This is especially true if the cavity is detected early. Routine preventive checkups are one of the best ways to detect cavities early on, when a filling is sufficient.
That said, more extensive cavities are just one example of the many issues that can be corrected through a dental crown. Crowns are one of the most versatile forms of restorative dentistry, because they can provide both cosmetic benefits and comfort. Porcelain crowns, for instance, are one nearly seamless way to restore the smile, because crowns can be made to closely match natural teeth. This can allow a patient to smile confidently even after restorative work has been completed.
Chips, cracks, and other types of trauma, can also be addressed through dental crowns. These help to seal the damage tooth against infection, and also prevent worsening of the chip or crack with wear.
If you have suffered trauma, or require treatment for an extensive cavity, consider the benefits of choosing a crown as a form of restoration.
