Dental crowns have always been a staple of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. One of the oldest restorations available, they've been around almost as long as the practice of dentistry itself. However, modern crowns have come a long way in recent years, delivering a natural-appearing and comfortable solution for a number of common dental problems. Dr. Michael Morris, your dentist in Spring and Louetta, TX, offers a range of cosmetic and general dentistry services for the entire family—read on to learn more!
Fix Your Smile and Improve Your Oral Health with Dental Crowns
Crowns restore the functionality and tooth surface that has been lost to decay or physical damage. Crowns are also used to replace a missing tooth with a dental bridge, or to cover a dental implant. The dentist may also recommend a crown to reinforce a weak or fractured tooth in order to protect it from further damage.
One of the most common reasons to get a crown is to cover a cavity that is too large to be filled with a standard dental filling. Crowns are also a great option to fix cosmetic problems that can ruin an otherwise healthy smile. In cases where other cosmetic dentistry options like teeth whitening treatments or veneers are not appropriate, crowns may be the best solution to fix a broken, cracked, stained, discolored, uneven, or unattractive tooth.
After a comprehensive dental exam at our Spring and Louetta office, your dentist will recommend the best treatment and cosmetic dentistry option for your situation. With adequate oral hygiene and follow up dental care (the American Dental Association recommends a check-up and cleaning every six months), the average crown can last between 5 to 15 years or longer.
