Crowns Repair Damaged or Decayed Teeth
Who Needs a Dental Crown?
When you have a broken or missing tooth, it can affect your self-confidence along with your physical and mental health. Dental crowns are a primary treatment option of restorative dentistry at our practice in Hollywood. We often use them to cover a discolored or damaged tooth and ultimately restore damaged teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile.
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are often referred to as caps that cover or cap a broken, damaged, or unhealthy tooth. Unlike a partial crown or an overlay, a dental crown encases the entire tooth after tailoring it to fit, rebuilding its function and durability.
Custom-made dental crowns fit perfectly over your tooth and will mix in flawlessly with your surrounding teeth after we shape and color match it to your natural teeth, so it looks like a natural tooth.
Most often, crowns are used to cover a tooth after a root canal treatment, repair a cracked or damaged tooth, replace missing teeth or attach to dental implants and dental bridges. Dr. Giraldo also uses dental crowns for cosmetic reasons to restore the look of a tooth that has become greyed out or discolored due to oral trauma.
What Are Dental Crowns Made From?
Dental crowns are made from many materials, including metal alloy, gold, porcelain, and zirconia. Porcelain and zirconia crowns are the most common choice for front-facing teeth as they look the most like real teeth. Zirconia crowns are the strongest crowns available, and Dr. Giraldo will help you decide which material is best for you.
How Do I Care For My Crown?
Crowns are exactly like your regular teeth, and they don’t require any modifications to your daily oral hygiene. You should continue to brush after meals at least twice a day, floss, and maintain regular dental check-ups. When you take care of your crowns, they can last many years.
