Restore Your Smile With Dental Crowns
If you’ve got a tooth that has been ravaged by tooth decay, a dental crown is the right choice for you. Your family dentist, Dr. John Kelly, at Bethesda Row Dental in Bethesda, MD, can help you determine if a dental crown is the correct restoration for your smile.
How Dental Crowns Can Help Your Smile
When you have a tooth that has experienced decay and damage, it can take away functionality from your smile and may make it hard to enjoy the foods you love. Getting a dental crown from your family dentist in Bethesda, MD, can help strengthen your damaged teeth. A crown completely covers the damaged tooth so it becomes a healthy tooth once again.
A crown can be made of porcelain, metal, or porcelain-fused-to-metal, with porcelain being the most natural-looking. Porcelain crowns can be color-matched to the rest of your smile and will be able to blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Dental crowns are also custom-made to match the shape and size of the rest of your teeth and fit perfectly in your smile.
Getting a dental crown from your family dentist will take at least two appointments. The first appointment will be to design your crown as well as prep your tooth for the next appointment. While your crown is being made, your dentist will be able to cover your tooth with a temporary crown to keep your tooth protected and strong.
Once your tooth is fully protected by your permanent crown, you’ll be able to eat and chew without any issues and you’ll restore functionality to your teeth.
