Although natural teeth are reasonably strong, it’s not hard to crack or break a tooth. A tooth can break from biting into something hard like a popcorn kernel or hard candy or facial trauma due to a slip and fall, auto accident, or sports mishap. Broken teeth can ruin your smile and impair your ability to eat or speak. Fortunately, your Glenview, Illinois, dentist can repair broken teeth with dental crown treatment. Dental crowns offer a practical solution to fixing damaged teeth to restore their function and appearance. At Smile Today Dental, Dr. Evelyn Kidonakis offers quality teeth crowns services to residents of Glenview and neighboring communities.
When teeth crack or break, it weakens the entire tooth structure, making it more susceptible to infection and decay. Left untreated, the damage can spread, causing you to lose natural teeth prematurely. Dental crowns are like restorative caps covering damaged teeth to protect them from infection, decay, and further breakage. The crown covers the entire tooth, down to the gum line, sealing harmful bacteria and keeping the tooth safe.
Dental crowns are composed of durable resin, porcelain, or ceramic materials that provide strength and stability to weak teeth, enabling them to function like normal. A tooth fitted with a crown can continue to be useful for years. At Smile Today Dental, we customize our crown treatments to make your teeth look and feel new again.
In addition to protecting a tooth, a crown can be used as a cosmetic treatment to cover dental flaws that mar a tooth’s appearance. Porcelain crowns are particularly attractive as they blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth. When you smile, you can hardly tell that you have had crown treatment.
Dental crowns offer numerous advantages over other treatments for repairing damaged teeth. Unlike onlays or veneers, which cover only part of your tooth, crowns completely encase your tooth in a protective covering that keeps bacteria and decay at bay.
At Smile Today Dental, we produce the highest quality crowns to give you optimal results from your treatment. Here are some of the benefits you stand to gain by choosing dental crown treatment:
Dental crowns contribute to saving damaged teeth from extraction. Crowns can also be combined with other dental treatments to include bridges, dental implants, veneers, and bonding to improve the quality, health, and appearance of your teeth.
