Dental Crown Leesburg
All-Ceramic Dental Crown
Dental restoration is necessary to maintain a healthy smile. As a result, a weak or damaged tooth may need a dental crown to restore its appearance and function. A dental crown is a tooth-like cap that is placed over a tooth. Crowns are custom-made to assure a proper fit and natural appearance. In addition, dental crowns can be used on a single tooth or in conjunction with dental implants and bridges.
What is an all-ceramic dental crown?
Dental crowns are available in different materials. However, we highly recommend all-ceramic dental crowns. This material is very durable and offers the most natural appearance. In fact, our patients are always very happy with the final results. All-ceramic allows the crown to appear flawless and improve chewing. Also, they are known to last up to 15 years or longer.
When is a crown recommended?
Teeth can be weakened or damaged due to decay or injury. A patient can also experience tooth loss. These circumstances likely result in needing a crown to restore the tooth. Of course, every patient is unique and will need an exam and consultation to narrow the best option to correct an affected tooth. For example, severe decay may result in a root canal treatment that includes a crown.
Does a dental crown require special maintenance?
A dental crown requires good dental hygiene. Brush your teeth twice a day and flossing daily. In addition, maintain your dental exams and cleanings. Patients may eat normally but need to avoid biting on hard food and candy.
