Healthy teeth are essential for biting, chewing, talking, smiling, and many other daily activities. Damage to one or more teeth can impact your lifestyle and even lower your quality of life. Porcelain crowns offer a practical solution for repairing compromised teeth to restore their function and beauty. At Gentle Dentistry of Newnan PC, Dr. Ria Sahara offers porcelain crown treatment to residents of Newnan, Georgia, and surrounding communities. A visit to our dental clinic can determine if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.
If you’ve ever heard someone talking about “capping” their teeth, they’re referring to dental crowns. A dental crown is a custom-made “cap” or covering that fits over a weak or damaged tooth to protect it from further damage. Capping a compromised tooth strengthens its structure so it can continue to be used for biting and chewing. It also gives your damaged tooth a better appearance to enhance your smile.
Crowns serve multiple purposes in protecting and preserving your teeth. They can be used to:
Ultimately, dental crowns restore the health, function, and usefulness of damaged teeth that may otherwise have to be extracted due to their compromised state.
Crowns come in different materials like porcelain, gold, zirconia,stainless steel, or a combination of these. If you’re crowning a visible tooth, Dr. Sahara may recommend a porcelain or zirconia crown for its natural-looking tooth-colored appearance. Porcelain crowns can be color-matched with the rest of your teeth so that they’re practically indistinguishable when you smile.
Porcelain crowns are also quite durable, so they can be used anywhere in your mouth, including on back teeth, which are mainly used for chewing. Crowning a damaged molar will restore your chewing power so you can continue to enjoy your favorite foods.
No one should have to put up with the pain and discomfort of damaged teeth. Dental crowns can make damaged teeth look new again. Knowing your teeth have been fully restored, you can eat, talk, laugh, and smile with confidence.
Moreover, porcelain crowns don’t require special care to keep them looking their best or functioning as they should. You care for crowns just like you care for natural teeth by brushing and flossing daily and keeping up with routine dental cleanings. Quality, high-tech crowns can last 15 years or more, giving you long-term protection for weak, worn, or compromised teeth.
