Teeth are subjected to a lot of wear and tear over the years due to their extensive use. They’re also prone to decay and injury, which may result in a cracked or broken tooth. Broken teeth not only look bad, but they’re also less functional when it comes to biting and chewing. At Cannon Dental in Salt Lake City, Utah, we can restore the appearance and functionality of damaged teeth through dental crown treatment.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are tooth caps that cover damaged teeth to restore appearance, resilience, and functionality. Crowns can be made from porcelain, acrylic, metal, or a combination of materials for greater strength and stability. They have a natural-looking appearance and can be color-matched to your teeth so that they blend in well with the rest of your smile. Crowns are also easy to care for — your daily oral care routine, which includes regular brushing and flossing, is more than enough to maintain them.
Uses of dental crowns
Crowns are a versatile treatment capable of correcting numerous cosmetic issues, including:
- Stains or discoloration
- Chips or cracks
- Broken teeth
- Misshapen teeth
In addition to improving aesthetics, dental crowns help support and safeguard weak, broken, or decayed teeth or teeth that have undergone root canal treatment, providing protection from further damage. This enables you to eat your favorite foods without worry, as your protected teeth will sustain the pressure of biting and chewing. Dental crowns are also sturdy and capable of providing you with years of quality use.
At our practice, Dr. David Cannon will custom-fit your crowns for comfort and a pleasing appearance so that when you smile, all others will see are beautiful, natural-looking teeth.
