Dental Crowns (Normal)
If you have just completed a root canal procedure and are hoping to restore the compromised tooth, a dental crown is one of the most effective options available today. They offer a long-lasting solution that matches existing teeth and allows patients to live their lives normally and pain-free. If you are searching for a good quality dental crown, consider visiting our office at Henricksen Family Dental to speak with our professionals.
After a root canal procedure, your tooth is left with a lot of enamel loss and is prone to various infections if left unattended. As soon as the resulting gum inflammation heals, we highly recommend getting an orthodontic device fitted over your tooth. Dental crowns are an ideal solution because they are non-invasive, effective, and durable. These versatile fixtures can be used on almost any tooth in your mouth, including your back molars, due to their strength and functionality.
There are several different types of crowns available and some of them are made from material that is not a good match for current teeth, like gold. These are generally placed on back molars where they are not obvious. With that said, dental crowns can match the natural color of your teeth perfectly. Even replacing half of your tooth with a dental crown can result in something that looks like one tooth rather than two separate pieces. You get to decide what material is used for your crowns and thus how they integrate with your current teeth.
One concern that many patients express is whether the sensation of a dental crown will impact their daily lives or cause discomfort. Once a crown is placed, it will quickly feel like a natural part of the tooth in question. That means that patients will rarely notice it and it will not interfere with their eating, drinking, or speaking. In fact, crowns actually promote healthy, pain free teeth. Placing them over sensitive teeth, for example, can help reduce the sensitivity and associated pain and offer patients an improved quality of life.
A crown can be placed over a natural tooth or a dental implant. Because of their simplicity and versatility, dental crowns are a good option for many people in a variety of different situations. They are an affordable option, too. Once you have a dental crown placed, you will not need to worry about replacing them for a long time. It can last you up to 15 years when maintained well. Additionally, because crowns are not affixed to your gum, changes to your facial structure will not affect the crown in any way or necessitate a replacement.
Today’s dental crowns are comfortable and both look and feel like natural teeth. If you would like to learn more about dental crowns, an experienced dentist is the best resource available.
