Thinking about getting a dental crown? Here are six ways you’ll benefit by capping your tooth.
You can’t properly chew food on the side of your mouth that has a broken or decayed tooth. By getting a crown, your bite will be able to withstand chewing again.
Less Sensitive Teeth
Dental caps protect a tooth from all sides. Granted, your tooth may be a little sensitive in the days right after you first get the crown. But for the most part, your new cover will protect your tooth and help your mouth feel more comfortable overall.
You can make your dental crown any color you want. It doesn’t have to be so bright that it stands out, but it can definitely be whiter than the original tooth. Crowns are a good way to fix up teeth that stubbornly refuse to whiten when you bleach them.
Getting a crown can cover up the fact that your tooth is a bit twisted or even missing a piece. Caps provide a brand-new exterior all around the tooth, enhancing its shape and helping it blend in seamlessly with its neighbors.
Your Crown Can Support a Bridge
Are you missing a tooth next to the one that could use a crown?
Dental crowns can be designed to have a false tooth attached to fill in a nearby gap. This is called a dental bridge. Bridges need support from crowns on both teeth on either side of the gap in order to work.
Smile with Confidence
A dental crown will complete your smile and give you the confidence to show it off.
