It can be a real inconvenience to lose a tooth. However, you have nothing to fear. Dental crowns are available, and there are some great advantages associated with them.
Smile Looks Good as New
Dental crowns are constructed to look just like natural teeth, so your smile will look brand new once the crown is in place. You will not have to deal with any unattractive gaps in your smile with a crown.
Resistant Against Stains
Most crowns are made out of porcelain. This material does not develop stains, so your restoration will look amazing for quite a while.
A Durable Solution
As long as you take care of your teeth, you can expect your crown to last up to 15 years. If you have a tendency to grind your teeth, talk to your dentist about getting a mouth guard to protect your crown.
Renewed Speaking and Eating Capabilities
Your teeth play an important role in how you talk. Losing a tooth affects that, but a crown restores your speech to normal. A crown also makes it easier to eat, whereas a gap would make it difficult to chew certain foods.
