It is possible to restore the strength of your teeth with dental crowns. Teeth that have become worn down and weak can be strengthened by placing a dental crown over the tops of the weakened tooth. Dental crowns can be used to correct several other problems, as well. They can conceal cracks, chips and discolorations. They can even be used to replace missing teeth when placed on top of a dental implant. Dr. George Zatarain of Z Dentistry places dental crowns in Reno, NV.
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are caps that fit over the tops of problem teeth. The crown actually wraps around the entire tooth so that the tooth is entirely encapsulated inside. Dental crowns are often made from porcelain or ceramic, but can also be made from metal or resin. Crowns are custom made for each patient, which allows for a perfect fit. Once placed, dental crowns blend in with the surrounding teeth and look and function just like natural teeth.
Make Your Teeth Strong Again
Dental crowns can make your teeth strong again. Teeth can become weak for several reasons, such as following an injury to the mouth. The normal wear and tear of chewing and biting can potentially weaken teeth over time. The loss of enamel can weaken teeth, as well. Once teeth have become weak, everyday functions such as biting and chewing can be painful. Dental crowns help by providing a protective seal around weak teeth, making them strong again. The crowns are then used to perform biting and chewing functions with no more pain.
Dental crowns can restore the strength of your teeth, allowing you to resume normal biting and chewing functions again. Crowns can also conceal a variety of imperfections, such as discolorations and misshapen teeth.
