Damaged teeth that are too weak or worn down to perform normal biting and chewing functions can be restored with dental crowns. A dental crown acts like a protective shell that gives a damaged tooth a strong, new exterior. At Bella Dentistry in Athens, our skilled dentist, Dr. Chanda Bennett, can restore your damaged teeth with custom dental crowns.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are hollow caps that fit over damaged teeth and completely encapsulate them to protect, strengthen, and restore those teeth. Dental crowns look like regular teeth so the appearance of your smile will not be affected. Further, each dental crown is custom created to look as natural as possible and to fit perfectly over its corresponding tooth. At our office in Athens, our dentist can have custom dental crowns created for your damaged teeth.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
There are numerous benefits associated with dental crowns, not the least of which is the restoration of damaged teeth. Once restored, damaged teeth will be strong enough to resume normal biting and chewing functions. Plus, dental crowns protect those teeth from becoming damaged further. The benefits of dental crowns include:
- Strengthening damaged teeth
- Protecting against further damage
- Restoring normal tooth functioning
- They look completely natural
- Each crown is custom made
In addition to strengthening and restoring damaged teeth, dental crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic concerns. Since a dental crown completely encapsulates the problem tooth, any flaws will be hidden. Stains, discolorations, cracks, chips, and other issues can be easily concealed. Not only can damaged teeth be made stronger, but teeth with cosmetic issues can be given a more pleasing appearance.
