Dental crowns protect fragile and damaged teeth, keeping your smile strong. Dr. Raymond A. Della Porta, your Vero Beach, FL dentist, dental crownsshares information about the benefits of dental crowns.

Crowns are versatile

Dental crowns slide over teeth and are constructed of durable materials that can withstand the forces of biting and chewing, such as porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, gold, nickel, ceramic or resin. Dentist use crowns for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Strengthening Weak Teeth: Crowns protect teeth weakened by crack or chips. If you don't receive a crown, the tooth may be more likely to break when you bite into a piece of food.
  • Providing Stability After Dental Treatments: Crowns are also recommended if a tooth requires a large filling, or you have undergone root canal therapy. Both of these treatments can weaken your teeth and make them more likely to crack or break without protection.
  • Repairing Broken Teeth: Placing a crown over a broken tooth not only protects it from further damage but also restores it to its full height and shape.
  • Hiding Cosmetic Issues: Crowns are an excellent choice if you're concerned about a tooth that is discolored, too short or oddly shaped.

You can receive a crown in just two visits

During the first visit, your Vero Beach dentist will reduce the size of your tooth slightly. This step is necessary to ensure that your new dental crown slips over your tooth easily. An impression of your mouth will also be made and sent to the dental laboratory that will create your custom-made crown. Your dentist will make a temporary crown for you, which you'll wear for about two weeks until your new crown is ready. When your permanent crown is finished, you'll return to your dentist's office. He'll check the fit of the new crown and make any necessary adjustments before permanently attaching it to your tooth with dental cement.

Dental crowns offer a simple way to keep your teeth strong. Call Dr. Raymond A. Della Porta, your Vero Beach, FL dentist, at (772) 567-1025 to schedule an appointment to learn if crowns are a good option for you. Improve your smile with dental crowns!
