Reasons You Might Need A Dental Crown

Do you need a dental crown? Your Perry Hall, MD, family dentists, Dr. Emma Galvan and Dr. Karl Meek of Perry Hall Dental Care in Nottingham, MD, provide dental crowns to maintain your smile.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped dental devices that your dentist places over your tooth to cover up defects. Porcelain and ceramic dental crowns are popular options. They give you a uniform white smile and your Nottingham, MD, family dentist can customize them to match your natural tooth color.

Dental crowns can be used to fix the following imperfections:

  • Tooth Discoloration Food, drinks, or cigarettes could leave your teeth with a stain that won't come off even after brushing. Tooth whitening procedures are typically effective at removing such stains. However, some stains might resist your tooth whitening efforts. Stains penetrating deep under your enamel due to medication or genetics might not respond to teeth whitening. In that case, dental crowns could cover up the stains to brighten your smile
  • Broken Teeth Accidents can occur on and off the field that could cause your tooth to break. Dental crowns help cover up the damage to your tooth to restore beauty and function
  • Chipped Teeth If you spend your time chewing hard foods such as ice, you could cause your tooth to chip. Chipped teeth don't look appealing and you can cover up the damage with dental crowns
  • Cracked Teeth A cracked tooth could lead to further damage if it gets infected. Dental crowns from your dentist help prevent further damage and possible infections
  • Crooked Teeth Misshapen teeth can be improved with dental crowns. Your dentist will shave off some enamel on your defective teeth and place dental crowns to realign your smile. This procedure is a quick way to restore your smile
