Although natural teeth are relatively strong and resilient, they’re not impervious to damage. Trauma to your face or mouth can result in chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Teeth can also be damaged by untreated decay or gum disease. In addition to damage, teeth can become stained or discolored by certain types of foods and drinks. Fortunately, dental crowns can help resolve these issues and restore your smile’s esthetic appeal. If you have chipped, cracked, stained, or damaged teeth, contact West Suburban Oral Health Care in Naperville, Illinois, to learn more about the restorative properties of the dental crown treatment.
Dental crowns are special coverings or caps that Dr. Susan Mazzei can put over damaged teeth to strengthen their structure and prevent further breakage. Crowns offer both functional and esthetic benefits in improving damaged or flawed teeth. Dental crowns completely cover a tooth to the gum line to seal it from future decay or infection. In the process, it protects the tooth from further damage. Crowns can strengthen teeth that have undergone root canal treatment to restore their looks, function, and usefulness. They can also be used as a cosmetic treatment to conceal imperfections in your teeth and improve their overall appearance.
