There are many different options for restoring your teeth to ideal function and form. Whether your teeth have cosmetic or physical defects, a great option for restoration is getting a dental crown. Crowns are very flexible, and can treat many different issues.

-You need to protect a weak tooth from tooth decay or from breaking.
-You need to restore a tooth that has been broken or worn down.
-You need to cover and support a tooth that has a large filling but doesn’t have enough tooth structure to hold it.
-You need to hold a dental bridge in its place.
-You need to disguise a tooth that is extremely misshapen or discolored.
-You need to cover a dental implant.
-You need to improve the appearance of your smile.

One thing to keep in mind is that while dental crowns themselves can’t decay, the teeth that they cover can. So be sure to keep up good hygiene habits, especially in flossing around the tooth with the crown. Also, keep up with your bi-yearly visits to our office for professional cleanings.

If you think crowns may be the answer to your cosmetic or restorative dentistry needs, call Healthy Smiles Dental Care® of Chelsea today at 734-475-8911 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Steven Rodriguez in Chelsea, Michigan.
