Are you coming in to see us for a dental crown soon? If so, you are most certainly well-informed regarding the reason and why this is the best of all choices for your smile. With that said, we realize you may still wonder about crowns. You have heard that they are quite versatile, so you may find yourself curious about the other reasons you may ever find yourself headed to our Cerritos, CA practice for this beautiful, ceramic, fully customized restoration that offers exceptional coverage and protection for your tooth! Ready for a new look at how crowns may fit into your life (and into your smile)? Let’s go!
To Fix A Structurally Damaged Tooth
We remind patients that one of the main reasons we suggest a dental crown is to fix structural damage. Perhaps your tooth becomes damaged due to an accidental trauma, your tooth became weak and cracked, etc. Fortunately, the placement of a beautiful crown gives you full coverage, which means fully restored structural integrity! You’ll have a whole tooth back.
To Improve A (Severely) Esthetically Damaged Tooth
You may assume that if your tooth is damaged esthetically (which means, in terms of its appearance alone) that cosmetic care will only include treatments like teeth whitening or porcelain veneers. However, in some instances, damage is even too significant for the camouflaging brilliance of veneers! The good news is that we may place beautiful ceramic crowns, which offer much more substantial coverage. The result, of course, is that your tooth looks new again and blends with your remaining natural teeth!
To Protect A Highly Vulnerable Tooth
What makes a tooth so vulnerable that it needs the protection of a dental crown, you ask? Well, let’s say your tooth has a large cavity that’s too big for a filling. Maybe your tooth has become weak or has some fractures and is susceptible to breaking. A crown will quickly rescue your tooth, so it doesn’t become further damaged.
To Restore Your Dental Implant
Are you on the path toward completing your dental implant journey to replace your missing tooth? If so, then remember that the final step is restoring your implant. If you have chosen a single implant and crown, then a dental crown is what you will have placed!
