Dental Crown Benefits
There are many different incidents that can lead to teeth becoming damaged in some way. For one, there is major tooth decay to worry about, which occurs when teeth have not been attentively cleaned or cleaned carefully enough. More than that, though, there are numerous accidents that can happen that can lead to injury to a tooth. Slips and falls can lead to damaged teeth, so can vehicular accidents, collisions while playing sports, or even sudden and unexpected hard substances found in ostensibly soft foods.
When you visit Miami area cosmetic dentist Dr. Gloria Ospina, she will be able to tell you what the best possible approach to fixing your teeth is. In many cases, dealing with major chips, cracks, and decay is best addressed through the use of dental crowns. Dental crowns are caps that are set on top of the affected tooth, protecting it from further damage and restoring the strength and stability of your bite.
There are plenty of great benefits to dental crowns. For one, we can craft dental crowns out of special dental ceramic materials that are color matched to the rest of your smile. That’s right: if you get a dental crown, it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
We mentioned the stability of your bite being restored, and that’s the truth. The damaged or decays portions of the tooth are removed to accommodate the crown. Once it’s in place, you can go back to eating your favorite foods without having to worry about pain, discomfort, or your crown being damaged through regular use.
On top of all this, caring for you dental crowns is easy. You just need to brush regularly and floss as usual. No special instructions and no extra hassle beyond regular things you should be doing.
When dental crowns are not the right option, Dr. Ospina will also consider Miami porcelain veneers, inlays, and onlays. Using her expertise, you can rest assured that your dental health is in great hands.
