How Ceramic Crowns Restore Vulnerable Teeth

Our teeth are protected by strong outer layers of enamel, but when problems arise, they need lasting support. The impacts of gradual wear and tear, dental injuries, and enamel decay make services that include the placement of permanent restorations necessary. At our Cerritos, CA dental practice, we provide services that address the harm that can affect teeth with dental crowns and other restorations that offer lasting coverage while mimicking the look of healthy enamel. Because we provide ceramic crowns that blend in with your smile, we can take on potentially severe issues without making you sacrifice your smile for the sake of oral health support!

Is Your Tooth In Need Of Protection?

Dental wear and tear, cavities, and injuries all have the potential to do serious harm to your smile and limit your bite function. Fortunately, good oral hygiene efforts and smart diet choices restrict just how much our teeth must endure. While some changes from years of friction can occur, you can generally limit just how much impact it will have on how you look over time with the right behaviors. However, if wear and tear is noticeable, or if you have trouble with an injury or a cavity, restorative dentistry can become a priority. We can provide a review and determine the right way to restore any vulnerable teeth that create issues for you. Because we can do so with crowns made from a lifelike ceramic substance, this work can preserve your smile as well as your appearance!

Using Ceramic Crowns To Restore Unhealthy And Vulnerable Teeth

Custom, smile-friendly dental crowns can effectively restore teeth while also preserving the way you look. These restorations are made only after a careful evaluation takes place. During that review, your dentist will find what shape and size your restoration needs to be to provide the right support, and they will also verify the tint so that it matches the color of its neighbors. The placement of your crown will happen at a subsequent appointment; this placement will occur after we confirm that the restoration received is truly right for protecting your tooth in the long term.

Other Effective Treatment Options For Smile Improvement

Not every person with flawed teeth will require the coverage of crowns. For a more conservative approach, we can instead take care of your smile with porcelain veneers. These thin, durable shells only cover the fronts of teeth, leaving the surrounding structure unchanged. By providing this coverage, they can effectively hide damages, discoloration, and worries about tooth shape while still letting you maintain more of your healthy and natural enamel.
