Everyone Can Wear a Crown | Snohomish Dentist
When we were kids, there was nothing cooler than the characters in our storybooks wearing a crown. They told people what to do, everyone looked up to them and so when we thought about future career choices, princess and king were always in the mix. Once we grew up we realized it was going to be tough to be royalty. We are, however, still able to wear a crown – a dental crown. Dental crowns are just what you think it is – like a crown the royals wear, a dental crown is basically a cap your dentist uses to restore your damaged tooth’s shape, size and appearance. Any time your tooth is weakened by a root canal, is misshapen or discolored, has a large filling or just worn down, a crown will be suggested to fix it. The process is simple and virtually painless, but what are the benefits of having a dental crown? Here are the top five:
Undergoing a dental crown procedure can improve the look of broken or cracked teeth. If you are suffering from a loss of teeth, dental crowns are the solution to replace any missing teeth.
Receiving dental crowns look extremely natural because the porcelain and composite resin crowns match the exact shade of your natural teeth. With dental crowns, you will not be able to tell the difference from your crowns and natural teeth.
For those of you who are consistent coffee drinkers, dental crowns are perfect because they are stain-resistant. This is because dental crowns are made from porcelain, a material that is not prone to discoloration.
Due to the durable materials used for your dental crowns, crowns can last for many years. With dental crowns, patients can go about their daily routines without constantly worrying about their dental crowns falling out of place.
Dental crowns are restorative and preventive measures that improve missing or damaged teeth. Dental crowns also drastically decrease the amount of bacteria build-up that can lead to the loss of more teeth.
If you are embarrassed of your missing or damaged teeth, dental crowns are the perfect solution to build your confidence!
