Dental crowns are bonded to a tooth in order to help restore oral health and to help improve the appearance of your smile. At Boca Smile Center, we often recommend a dental crown from our Boca Raton, FL dentist office to patients whose teeth don’t have enough healthy enamel to support a filling.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” made of porcelain that is placed over a tooth to help restore its shape, strength and size. A dental crown can be the right choice to recreate the appearance and function of a tooth damaged by decay or trauma.
The crown replaces the external portion of the tooth down the the gums in order to help preserve the appearance of the patient’s smile. Our Boca Raton dental team may recommend a crown to:
- Restore a broken or worn tooth
- Protect a tooth, weakened from decay, from breaking
- Cover a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Reinforce a tooth treated using root canal therapy
Is A Dental Crown The Right Choice For Me?
Most people are ideal candidates for a crown. This dental procedure can improve the appearance of a damaged tooth while also restoring the tooth’s natural function. After a dental crown is placed, most patients are able to enjoy chewing without pain and to smile with confidence again.
How Long Will A Crown Last?
Most crowns last between 5 and 15 years. It depends on the wear and tear the dental crown is exposed to and if a patient takes care of the crown with regular brushing and flossing.
A crown should be treated just like your natural teeth, so regular cleanings and checkups at our Boca Smile Center are important!
