Do you have a tooth that’s chipped or cracked? Does it hurt sometimes when you chew? Those aren’t your only problems. Until you get it treated, such problems will only get worse. You could even lose your tooth.
That’s why you need to call our Racine, WI dental office today at 262-417-7326 for dental crowns. Dr. Reesman is highly trained in using restorative dentistry to repair and beautify your smile.
What Are Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are also known as caps. That’s because they fit snugly over the visible part of your tooth. Each dental crown is made specifically for the tooth it will cover, matching it’s shape but using a bright, healthy shade of white.
Thanks to Dr. Reesman’s training, the dental crown procedure is routine and easy. First, he will carefully remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth. This is so your dental crown will sit flush with your other teeth and look more natural. Then the crown is gently bonded to that tooth, coving up any damage or imperfections.
The Many Hats Of Dental Crowns
When it comes to the roles played by dental crowns, they wear many hats. That’s because they’re one of the most effective and versatile dental restorations you can get. Here are four ways dental crowns can help your smile.
1. Strengthen a tooth weakened by cavities or teeth grinding.
Your teeth are covered by tough, durable enamel. However, that’s not the same thing as impervious. Enamel can be weakened by having cavities (which are holes in your enamel), especially big ones. In fact, a cavity can grow so large that a dental filling won’t work anymore. You can also wear down your enamel by grinding your teeth a lot.
Call North Bay Dental today at 262-417-7326 and schedule your appointment for dental crowns. These add a layer of protection to your teeth, making them strong again despite worn spots or cavities.
2. Repair a tooth damaged by an accident or injury.
If you stay active, you know your teeth can be at risk. A tough tackle, taking a puck to the mouth, or just falling hard while biking can damage your teeth. Chips and cracks not only look bad, but they make your tooth weaker and more prone to additional damage.
By calling our Racine, WI dental office today, you can set up a visit to get dental crowns on damaged teeth. It prevents damage like chips and cracks from getting worse, and it makes your tooth stronger.
3. Replace a lost tooth with a dental bridge or dental implant.
Believe it or not, dental crowns can even replace missing teeth. In a dental bridge, the crown is used as a replacement tooth. It’s even held firmly in that gap by two other dental crowns, one on each tooth next to the gap. A dental implant also uses a dental crown as the replacement.
That’s why you need to call North Bay Dental today. A missing tooth makes your whole smile look worse, and it can lead to dental health problems. Thankfully, Dr. Reesman can put a dental crown atop a dental implant or use a dental bridge. Either way, you’ll finally have a complete smile again.
4. Hide stains or cosmetic problems.
A lot of the damage that you can collect on your teeth is not just a dental health risk — it looks painful. Chips and cracks are definitely included. But you can also have stained teeth or ones that are irregularly shaped just by some quirk of genetics. You can even have some edges worn down by all those years of chewing.
You can get help by calling us today and making an appointment for dental crowns. Because it covers the visible part of your tooth, it will hide all these cosmetic problems. All people will see is a bright, healthy-looking tooth.
