When You Would Need the Relief of Dental Crowns

Are you unhappy with how your teeth look or function? See why dental crowns may be the smile solution you’ve been seeking.

The Demand for Dental Crowns

Basically, dental crowns are tiny caps that are used to cover teeth to repair and restore their appearance, strength, and shape. They are frequently recommended over other procedures like cosmetic dentistry veneers and cosmetic dentistry bonding because they improve both the form and function of a tooth. There is such great demand for dental crowns that they are widely available from any affordable dentist Falls Church. In general, dental crowns are used to:

  • Enhance the look of a damaged, discolored, or decayed tooth
  • Fix a broken or eroded tooth
  • Hold together pieces of a cracked tooth
  • Prevent a weak tooth from breaking
  • Keep a dental bridge securely in place
  • Conceal and support a diminishing tooth with a large filling
  • Cover up a dental implant
  • Protect a tooth after a root canal

The Durability of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns last an average of five to 15 years. They last much longer than cosmetic dentistry bonding and are much more durable than cosmetic dentistry veneers, which are made out of thin sheets of porcelain. Of course, the life span of dental crowns depends on the wear and tear they take over time, as well as your dental habits and daily care.

The Daily Care of Dental Crowns

Surprisingly, dental crowns require the exact same maintenance as natural teeth to remain attractive and strong. This translates to practicing good oral hygiene, including brushing at least twice a day, daily flossing, being gentle on your teeth, and seeing an affordable dentist Falls Church for check-ups and cleanings twice a year.
