Restore Your Smile with Dental Crowns

Each natural tooth is a sum of its parts. The visible part of the tooth above the gum line is the “crown.” The roots of the teeth extend into the underlying bone in the jaw. You also can’t see the pulp tissue at the center of the tooth. The natural crown can be damaged due to progressive decay, fractures, or other trauma. Fortunately, we can rebuild a damaged crown at West Suburban Oral Health Care in Naperville, Illinois. 

Since breakage, for instance, can threaten the innermost pulp tissue and the very structure of the tooth, restoring the crown with quality, biocompatible, and durable materials prevent deep infections. Crowns also frequently follow root canal therapy, a non-surgical procedure to remove diseased pulp tissue and resolve deep inflammation. These and other endodontic procedures may be the only way to “save” a badly decayed tooth. 

Additionally, crowns are so versatile that they can even be used to replace teeth. Drs Susan Mazzei, Kelsey Esposito, and Kim Spielman may design crowns to support a dental bridge. Replacement teeth in a bridge rely on anchor teeth. These anchors must be crowned to best support the replacements that “bridge” the gap between the teeth. Crowns are also the finishing touch in the process of replacing teeth with dental implants. The implants function like tooth roots to “stabilize” the replacement teeth, a single crown, an implant-retained bridge, or a fixed implant denture. 

A convenient, no-stress process 

We also use various complementary technologies to support the best, most comfortable experience at our practice. These technologies include gentle diagnostic scans or x-rays, painless laser dentistry, and alternatives to the dental drill and needles; such as air abrasion. 

Do not wait for potential signs of tooth decay to arise. You depend on your teeth and gums for so many functions that are integral to your overall health and wellbeing.
