6 Ways Dental Crowns Restore Smiles

cost of dental crowns Atlanta

Dental crowns have been around a long time, and continue to play an essential role in Flax Dental in Atlanta. A dental crown, often called a cap, covers the visible part of the tooth.

Dental crowns are used for many dental problems:

  • An old crown that is damaged or ill-fitting
  • A broken tooth
  • A tooth with extreme decay
  • A tooth that has had a root canal
  • A tooth that is too small or misshapen
  • A tooth that restricts a proper bite

A dental crown serves both structural and aesthetic purposes. It protects a natural tooth from additional decay and damage while permitting normal function. Plus, a crown can save a tooth from extraction and the ensuing bone loss.

Patients who get a dental crown should not assume that the tooth is now invincible. Crowns need daily cleaning and flossing just like natural teeth. The remaining tooth structure just around the gumline could still become decayed and the soft tissue around the crown is susceptible to gum disease. Chewing hard foods or using your teeth as a tool can cause a crown to crack or break. (Use scissors to open a stubborn plastic package—don’t bite and pull!)

At Flax Dental in Atlanta, dental crowns are a common restorative dentistry procedure. Please call our office to schedule an appointment today!
