Dental Crowns & How They Can Help Your Smile

Are you in need of dental crowns? Dental crowns are “caps” your dentist can put on teeth. The dental crowns fully encase the entire visible portion of the teeth that lie above the gum line. Ralph Mazzuca is one of the top dentists in Washington, DC. He offers a full range of dental services, including crowns. Read on to find out how dental crowns can help your smile.

#1- Fix Dental Problems- Dental crowns are routinely used to restore cracked, chipped, worn-down, and badly decayed teeth. Crowns are also used to protect teeth following root canal treatment and as a part of a fixed dental bridge. 

#2- Beautify Your Smile- Crowns are made from several types of materials. Composite resin, ceramic, porcelain or combinations of these materials may be used. In the process of making a dental crown, the material often is colored to blend in with your natural teeth. All-porcelain crowns are beautiful and provide the best natural color of all the crowns.

#3- A Perfect Color Match- It's important that you have a crown that matches the rest of your teeth. Your dentist can choose from over a dozen shades and give you a crown that is better matched to the shade of your natural teeth.

#4- Strength and Durability- Dental crowns are incredibly strong and durable. They're strong enough to withstand chewing forces.

#5- Improve Oral Function- It's difficult to eat when you have fractured teeth. Dental crowns will give you the ability to enjoy good food again. Dental crowns restore the structure of your teeth so you can eat in comfort and with confidence. 

#6- Brighten Your Smile- Dental crowns can correct tooth discoloration. If your tooth has darkened after root canal treatment, bleaching it won't help. Teeth whitening will not lighten some stains, like tetracycline-induced stains. In this case, your dental provider may recommend covering the darkened tooth with a dental crown.
