If your tooth has been damaged or does not look the way that you want it to, a dental crown may be an option for you. At Bayport Dental Care, we specialize in dental crowns for patients that come in every shape and size. A dental crown can be applied by one of our dentists in Bayport.
A crown is a cover for your tooth that improves the way it works and makes it stronger. If you have a cavity that is too large for a normal filling, a crack in your teeth, root canal issues, discoloration, and other dental issues, a crown may be able to help. Teeth that are worn down may also benefit from the application of a crown.
Crowns can be made from several different types of materials. They can be made of metal alloys, porcelain, ceramics, porcelain fused with metal, or composite resin. The material used is matched to the color of your natural teeth so that it blends in with your smile. The goal of Bayport Dental Care is to make sure that your crown looks natural and fits comfortably. One of our skilled dentists will take your specific needs into consideration when choosing which material will be used for your crown. Some of these factors include:
Crowns can break just like natural teeth. Your tooth can also get cavities up under the crown. It is important to take good care of your teeth to prevent cavities as well as damage to your crown. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once a day to avoid leftover food getting trapped that could cause cavities to develop. Use dental products that have been approved by the American Dental Association for their safety as well as their effectiveness.
A Bayport Dental Care professional in Bayport can assess your teeth and apply a crown that fits in perfectly with your real teeth.
