Here’s what you should know about getting dental crowns.

It’s important that you have a dentist that you can turn to not just for routine checkups but also to provide restorations and treatments if or when the need arises. At some point during your lifetime, you may require a dental crown and our Marion, AR, family dentist Dr. Wayne Cook can provide you with the crown, filling or restorative dentistry you need for a strong, healthy smile. Have questions about dental crowns? Here’s what you should know,

A dental crown protects teeth

If you have a tooth that has been damaged by infection, decay or trauma, it’s important that you have something to strengthen and protect what’s left of the tooth. If you leave a weak tooth unprotected, you can imagine that over time the tooth will just get weaker.

Instead, a dental crown is placed over the tooth to reinforce it and to provide a protective barrier around it. Just as you’d put a cast around a broken bone, our Marion, AR, family dentist will place a crown over the tooth to help the tooth chew and bite comfortably without issues.

A dental crown can improve your smile’s appearance

While crowns are considered restorative dentistry, this tooth-shaped cap can also enhance the appearance of your smile. A crown can improve,

  • A tooth that has a pitted, uneven texture
  • Misshapen or malformed teeth
  • Discolored or severely stained teeth

Our crowns are custom-made to provide you with a perfectly fitted and natural-looking restoration. Our tooth-colored crowns are made from porcelain, making it easy to choose a shade that will blend right in with the rest of your smile. No one will know that you once had a misshapen or discolored tooth once we place a crown over it.

A dental crown can help replace missing teeth

That’s right! A dental crown can also play a vital role in replacing missing teeth. Whether you choose to get a dental implant or a dental bridge, you will also need a dental crown. A crown is cemented over an implant to replace one or more missing teeth and two crowns are also to anchor a dental bridge into place to fill gaps in your smile with natural-looking false teeth.

If you are wondering whether your smile could benefit from dental crowns, then call our Marion, AR, family dentist today at (870) 739-8799 to schedule a consultation with our team.
