Broken TeethFor years, dentists have been using dental crowns to improve damaged, broken, or decayed teeth. Crowns provide both restorative and aesthetic benefits to patients who have problems with their teeth. If you have a tooth that doesn’t look right, doesn’t feel right, or doesn’t fit in with the rest of your smile, don’t hesitate to talk to Dr. George Trask at Monroeville Dental in Monroeville, OH (and serving patients near Norwalk, OH) about having a crown placed.

The Strength of Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a small wonder in the field of dentistry. It is a device that is usually formed from a block of porcelain, which is one of the most resilient materials that closely resembles the look of natural tooth enamel. Porcelain crowns contain zirconia, making them among the strongest of all ceramic materials. In addition to its consummate durability, a porcelain crown has a very attractive, polished, contoured appearance.

How Dental Crowns Help
Because of its strength, a crown provides the ultimate in security for a previously damaged or infected tooth. It serves the same purpose as the outer dentin and enamel layers, but with a more reinforced surface. A dental crown will also be less likely to stain compared to your natural enamel. Your Norwalk area dentist will color-match your crown so that you can smile knowing that it looks just like your other teeth—no one will be able to tell the difference.

How Will the Procedure Go?
You may be surprised by how simple it is to get a crown made and fitted to your smile. The first step is removing the damaged outer material so that the crown, also called a cap, can completely cover the tooth. The remaining part of the tooth, called an abutment, will be measured so that a custom crown can be designed by a skilled technician. The process is complete when your dentist bonds the crown and adds contouring so that it looks as natural as possible.
