Your quiet lunch away from the office took a quick turn for the worst when you felt that telltale crack while biting into your sandwich. Now you have a broken tooth, and it’s starting to feel sensitive. You’re going to have to call your dentist for some relief.
Your dentist in Amherst is likely going to recommend a dental crown to repair your tooth, and here’s why that’s a good thing.
#1: A Dental Crown Maintains Your Natural Tooth Structure
Keeping your natural teeth for as long as possible is always your dentist’s goal, and a tooth crown helps you maintain your natural tooth structure because it fits over it like a cap. This helps rebuild and strengthen a broken tooth or ensures that a tooth severely damaged by decay maintains its integrity. A tooth crown is also necessary for rebuilding a tooth that has been treated with a root canal.
#2: A Tooth Crown Blends Seamlessly With Your Smile
Today’s all-ceramic tooth crowns can be customized to blend perfectly with your smile so that no one will notice your dental work. A porcelain dental crown is an excellent choice for restoring beauty to your smile.
#3: A Dental Crown Protects Your Tooth Root
Choosing a dental crown to restore your tooth allows your tooth root to stay intact, which protects the health of your jawbone that supports your surrounding teeth.
