What Dental Crowns Can Do For Your Smile

Do you want a beautiful smile but are dealing with severe stains, misshapen teeth, and crooked teeth? At Apex Dental, Dr. Jeffrey Rafalski and Dr. Chris DeMeyer of Lemon Grove, and Spring Valley, CA, can provide you with dental crowns to perfect your smile.

About Dental Implants

Dental implants are cap-like oral appliances that fit over teeth. They are sometimes confused with veneers, which only adhere to the surface of teeth as opposed to fully encapsulating the tooth like a crown.

Crowns come in various materials: porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, gold, and zirconium. The best option for you depends on your budget and the location of the crown. You should speak with your dentist about which option is best for you.

Common Problems Dental Crown Fix?

 Dental crowns are long-term restorations. They are used to resolve these problems:

  • Broken and severely decayed teeth requiring support. Dental crowns hide unappealing teeth and also reinforce teeth so you can smile and chew with no worries.
  • Sensitive teeth often require crowns to create a barrier between natural teeth and food. This will make eating easier and won't affect a person's nutritional intake.
  • Your dentist also uses dental crowns to support loose dental fillings.
  • There is a myriad of procedures that require crowns, like dental implants and bridges.

How To Care for Dental Crowns

Caring for crowns is the same as caring for natural teeth. Make sure you brush twice a day and floss a minimum of once a day to remove food debris and ensure bacteria don't affect your teeth.

Part of caring for crowns and natural teeth is visiting your dentist twice a year for regular checkups and professional dental cleanings. This reduces the chance of serious issues arising by treating them early on.
