Dentists use dental crowns for a variety of dental treatments. Typically used to give damaged teeth extra support or to conceal dental flaws like crooked teeth, crowns offer a number of different benefits to your oral health and appearance. Here at North Main Dental Inc in Dayton, OH, your dentists, Drs. James Shepler and Jamie Shepler, use these restorations for the following reasons:

  • Dental crowns can instantly straighten and whiten your teeth because they can effectively cover any cosmetic flaws.
  • Dental crowns can offer symmetry and balance to your misshapen smile, particularly if you have severely damaged teeth.
  • Implant-supported dental bridges and crowns can provide a better appearance over more traditional tooth replacement options. This is because they function like natural teeth and are less likely to move since they’re joined to synthetic roots.
  • When combined with other relevant dental procedures, dental crowns can help alleviate the symptoms of damaged teeth, including pain, sensitivity, halitosis or bad breath, inflammation, abscess, and fever.
  • If your damaged tooth has enough remaining healthy structure that can serve as a solid foundation, a dental crown will suffice so you won’t need to have your tooth extracted. Your dentist in Dayton, OH, can reshape your damaged tooth or get rid of the decayed parts so that it can support a dental crown.
  • Having crooked teeth could interfere with your bite, causing TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorder. This condition usually causes headaches, premature tooth wear, and general discomfort/pain. Dental crowns could help your lower and upper teeth meet properly, resulting in a perfect bite.
  • Implant-supported dental crowns could likewise help in preventing jawbone loss by exercising your jawbone through the synthetic titanium or ceramic tooth root.
