Dental Crowns: The Most Royal of Dental Enhancements | Riverside Dentist

There aren’t many of us that will ever be considered royalty, but that doesn’t mean that our smile can’t. Sure, most of us have something about our smile that we’d like to change. And many of those issues can be fixed by a dental crown. If you are considering a smile fix, you may want to consider the royal treatment.

A dental crown is a custom-made cap that’s placed over a damaged tooth or implant to restore the color, shape, size and strength. The crown covers the entire tooth, from the chewing surface to the gum line. There are several benefits that stem from crowns, include the following:

Placing a crown is often recommended to repair tooth enamel and structure. Patients that are suffering from tooth decay, tooth root infection, or oral trauma, such as a chip or fracture, the tooth may ache or feel sore. Once the dental problem is taken care of, the tooth may still be vulnerable to further damage or discomfort. Having crown placed will alleviate symptoms and protect against further issues.

Some patients mistakenly believe that this restorative procedure is complicated or intensive. In all reality, having a dental crown placed is minimally invasive and relatively straightforward. Once the tooth’s enamel is clean and healthy, your dentist will shape your tooth so that it will securely hold the crown. 

Crowns are custom made just for you. Each dental crown is designed according to your exact specifications in terms of the shape, size and color. Patients can feel confident that the dental crown will blend in seamlessly with their existing teeth. Since crowns can fit over a damaged or discolored tooth, they can instantly correct a myriad of dental problems.
