The Advantages Of Dental Crowns

Examining Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a hollow shell that's shaped to slip over a damaged tooth. Crowns are made from different types of durable materials that can withstand the force of chewing and biting, such as ceramic, gold, nickel, and porcelain.

Dr. Perumalla and the team at Fairlawn Family Dentistry offer dental crowns in Topeka, KS for patients who have damaged teeth that can still be restored. Aside from renovating the look of your smile, crowns also offer several other significant benefits.

Reduce Discomfort/Repair Damage

If you undergo restorative treatment for your teeth – like fillings or root canal treatment – your dentist will often use a crown to diminish any sensitivity to changes in pressure or temperature. Also, once the underlying issue is fixed, your dentist will use a crown to repair any structural damage or damage to your tooth's enamel.

Custom-Made for Your Teeth

Your crowns are specifically designed to match the size and shape of your teeth. You'll also see an immediate cosmetic improvement in the appearance of your smile since crowns fit perfectly over your natural teeth. If you have any misshaped, cracked or broken teeth, a crown instantly restores the natural look of your teeth.  

Simple Procedure – Instant Results

Many people think restorative dental treatments are long, complicated procedures. Fortunately, advancements in technology make applying dental crowns relatively easy and straightforward. Since a crown is designed to match the shape and size of your teeth, all your dentist needs to do is clean your teeth and remove any damaged tissue to "cast" your crown.

Once your custom-made crown is ready (you'll receive a temporary crown until your custom crown is ready), your dentist will place the crown over the affected tooth and instantly make it a permanent member of your healthy, natural-looking smile.
