If you have a problem with your smile, then it might be time to ask about getting a dental crown.
Crowns are easily one of the most useful services in modern dentistry. As you’ll see below, they can be used for a wide range of restorative and cosmetic purposes.
And you can get one for yourself at Van Buskirk & Krischke DDS in Crown Point, IN. Our zirconia crowns look natural and have the durability to last for decades of daily use.
To get one, call 219-641-3422 to make an appointment.
Restore Your Teeth
Unfortunately, accidents happen, and some of them take a toll on your teeth. Broken teeth are something we treat on a regular basis at our office. A dental crown is typically the best solution for this situation.
Getting a crown is a fairly straightforward process as well. Your tooth is reshaped by removing the parts that make be weaker due to the damage it has received. What’s left acts as an abutment, which provides support for your crown.
You may wear a temporary crown for a short time while your permanent zirconia crown is being crafted. When it’s ready, your new crown will be bonded to your tooth. That restores your tooth’s function as well as its natural appearance.
This same process can be used to correct other issues as well, including chipped teeth, cracked teeth, decayed teeth, and worn down teeth.
For an infected tooth, you may get a crown after you receive a root canal treatment. The process is a little different than what is described above, but the final result is the same — a tooth that looks and feels natural.
Upgrade Your Smile
From a cosmetic standpoint, you could use the same procedure to improve the appearance of your tooth.
Crowns can be used to build up a tooth that looks small relative to the rest of your smile. Crowns have also been used to change misshapen teeth so they stand out less.
And if you have an individual tooth that is a noticeably different color than the rest of your teeth, a crown can help it blend in better.
These may seem like small changes, but our experience has shown us that they can make a big difference in how people feel about their teeth.
Replace What You’ve Lost
Crowns also can be joined to a dental implant to replace a tooth that has fallen out, been knocked out of its socket, or been removed. The implant takes the place of the root of the missing tooth, and it provides support, security, and stability for your new crown.
This reduces your risk of changes in your bite and of further tooth loss as well.
