Crowns can restore your smile by strengthening teeth that are worn down, damaged, or too weak to bite and chew food. Crowns are placed over problem teeth like a cap, and once in place, they provide a strong outer shell that allows for normal biting and chewing functions to resume while protecting against further damage. Here at Frechtman Family Dental of Edison, NJ, your family dentists, Dr. Saul Frechtman and Dr. David Frechtman, can restore your teeth with custom crowns—read on to learn more.
A dental crown is a hollow cap that fits over a weak or damaged tooth. The crown looks just like a natural tooth so it will readily blend in and be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. The purpose of a crown is to protect, strengthen, and restore. Since the crown creates a new exterior for a problem tooth, it can protect it from being further worn down or damaged. The crown also restores normal tooth functioning by giving the tooth a strong outer shell that can withstand biting and chewing.
Benefits of Crowns
Dental crowns deliver several benefits. In addition to protecting and strengthening teeth, as well as restoring normal tooth functions, crowns can also improve the appearance of your smile. Since crowns completely encapsulate the teeth they protect, they can conceal various imperfections. Teeth with stains, discolorations, chips, or cracks can all be given a flawless exterior simply by placing a custom crown over the tooth.
