If your dentist recommends a dental crown to restore your tooth, you can rest assured that you're receiving one of the best restorations for your smile. Today's crowns are crafted from ceramic porcelain, which is not only durable but also provides a more aesthetic appearance than crowns in the past that were fused with metal. Here are some fun facts you might not have known about dental crowns in Doylestown, PA, and how they can improve your smile.

1. Your Dental Crown Is Customized for You

Your dentist will take impressions of your natural tooth and also use a custom shading process to ensure that your dental crown closely matches your natural tooth.

2. A Crown Is a Final Restoration for a Dental Implant

If you are living with a missing tooth, you might be considering a dental implant to restore your smile. You'll be happy to know that for a single tooth replacement, your final restoration is a customized porcelain crown that is designed to blend seamlessly with your smile.

3. Dental Crowns Can Protect Your Tooth from Extraction

If your tooth has sustained damage or had an infection caused by tooth decay, your dentist might recommend root canal therapy for you. Now your tooth will need to be strengthened, and a dental crown is perfect for the job! Rebuilding your tooth with a root canal and a crown helps you preserve your natural root and avoid tooth extraction and replacement.

4. Crowns Also Provide Cosmetic Benefits

If you have a tooth that is broken, decayed, or discolored, a dental crown may be the perfect solution for restoring your tooth and enhancing your smile. Porcelain crowns can be matched to the shade of your teeth, so the crown will blend in perfectly.

5. Dental Crowns Are a Long-Term Solution

Once your dentist cements a dental crown into place, it will not move. This crown will then provide stability and support for eating and chewing. With consistent brushing, flossing, and checkups with your local dentist, it can last for 12 to 15 years in most cases.
