Dental crowns can help restore damaged teeth by making them stronger. Each crown is custom made and fits directly over its corresponding tooth, completely enclosing it inside. The crown gives the tooth a durable new exterior that is strong enough to bite and chew food. At Dr. George Salem and Associates in Braintree, MA, our skilled dentists can have custom crowns created for you.
Dental crowns are hollow caps that look like natural teeth but actually fit over your existing teeth. When placed over a damaged tooth, a crown protects the tooth against being worn down or damaged further. The crown also makes the tooth stronger by giving it a hard, new outer shell. The tooth remains protected inside the crown.
Crowns also restore normal everyday functions, such as chewing food. When a tooth is weak, worn down, or damaged, it can be too painful to use that tooth for biting and chewing. Since the crown gives the tooth a strong, new exterior, biting or chewing food can resume without pain, discomfort, or sensitivity. At our office in Braintree, a dentist can determine if your damaged tooth can be restored with a crown.
Benefits of Crowns
There are many benefits associated with crowns. Not only do they strengthen, protect, and restore damaged teeth, they can also improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic issues. The appearance of teeth with stains, chips, cracks, discolorations, and other concerns can be dramatically improved. Since crowns are placed over teeth, they completely hide any cosmetic flaws. Some of the many exciting benefits of crowns include:
- They blend in with the surrounding teeth and look completely natural
- Teeth that are worn down, weak, or damaged teeth are made stronger
- They protect teeth from further being further worn down or damaged
- They restore the ability to bite and chew food without pain or sensitivity
- They are custom made for the best possible fit
If you have teeth that are damaged, weak, or worn down, crowns can help restore them.
