Dental Crowns, A Long-Lasting Solution to Repairing Damaged Teeth

Damaged teeth can be difficult to live with due to painful chewing. Teeth that are chipped or cracked are at risk of infection or further damage. They’re also an eyesore when you smile. These reasons and more should make tooth repair a priority. At Lifestyle Dentistry, Smyrna, Georgia, Dr. Aja Nichols uses dental crowns to repair damaged teeth. Crowning a weak, worn, or damaged tooth repairs the damage, strengthens its structure, and restores its function and appearance.

How Crowns are Used

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that can be placed over compromised teeth for stability and protection. Crowning a tooth gives it extra support to keep it from cracking or crumbling. Dr. Nichols will customize your crown to conform to the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth so that it fits perfectly and has a natural-looking appearance that blends in with your smile.

Dental crowns can be used to: 

  • repair teeth that have suffered severe decay and protect them from future infection
  • strengthen weak, worn, or damaged teeth to keep them from falling apart 
  • restore a compromised tooth’s function and usefulness
  • improve the appearance of flawed, misshapen, or malformed teeth
  • act as a replacement tooth for dental implants
  • support a dental bridge

Benefits of Dental Crown Treatment

Dental crowns provide long-lasting protection and stability for damaged teeth. A porcelain crown, for example, can last over 10 years with proper care. Porcelain crowns are made of durable, stain-resistant porcelain material that strongly resembles the color of natural teeth. A porcelain crown can easily blend in with your smile to enhance its aesthetic appeal.

Crowning a damaged tooth is more practical and cost-effective than having the tooth removed. Dental crowns help preserve your smile and save you the expense of replacing one or more teeth later down the line. Through dental crown treatment, damaged teeth can be restored as new.
