The benefits of placing quality dental crowns
Drs. Ben Whiting and Scott Stauffer of Whiting Dental in Mesa and San Tan Valley, Arizona, uses dental crowns regularly for patients who need to repair their smile. There are several benefits of working with a dentist who provides quality crowns, or “porcelain teeth caps,” to cover compromised tooth structures.
What are the advantages of a quality dental crown?
There are many benefits of a quality dental crown, including:
- Improved appearance: With a dental crown, you can improve the appearance of your teeth by covering up any chips, cracks, or discoloration. It can also make your teeth look longer and more symmetrical.
- Improved function: A high-quality dental crown can improve the function of your teeth by protecting them from further damage and strengthening teeth to allow you to enjoy all your favorite foods. It can also help to restore their shape and alignment.
- Enhanced durability: A quality dental crown will be made out of a durable material such as porcelain and ceramic that will last for many years. That means you will not have to worry about it falling off or becoming damaged.
- Reduced risk of tooth decay: A dental crown can protect your teeth from tooth decay and other dental problems. It will also keep your smile looking healthy and beautiful.
What is the process of obtaining a dental crown?
Now that we know all the benefits of having a quality dental crown let’s take a look at what happens during the process of getting one. First, your dentist will need to take some x-rays and measurements of your teeth to create a custom crown that fits your mouth perfectly. That includes taking off some natural enamel beforehand and getting an impression. The impression is used to create the final restoration that he bonds in place—finally, Drs. Ben Whiting and Scott Stauffer will polish it to a high sheen so that it looks like your natural teeth. The preparation and placement often occur during separate appointments as a dental laboratory creates the restoration outside the office.
