How Do I Know If I Need A Crown?

Good question.

If you want to start investigating a possible answer, take a look in the mirror, and open wide.

I know, I know: It’s not your most favorite activity these days, but just bear with me for a second – it could save you from unnecessary future pain.

Now take a long, hard look at your teeth. I’ll be here when you get back.

Did you see

 

  • Broken or chipped teeth?
  • A tooth weakened by decay?
  • Worn down, faded teeth?
  • Staining or discoloration?
  • Missing teeth?
  • Unsightly old fillings that have lost their luster?

 

If so, then you are likely in desperate need for a crown or bridge.

I understand that bad teeth can happen to even the best of us, but what few people wind up doing about is muster the courage to actually fix their oral health problems.

There’s no good reason that the mouth in the mirror should be a source of pain or embarrassment any more, and there’s no excuse good enough to keep the status quo of an unattractive smile.

My highly skilled staff at Marineland Dental Care is trained to help you if your smile fits those criteria. We offer a variety of effective services that can fix teeth you may have written off as lost causes years ago.

 

The Advantages of Dental Crown Procedures

 

To put it simply, a crown is an artificial “cap” that looks just like a normal tooth, and is fitted over a decayed or broken tooth. Sometimes, you might have a row of bad or missing teeth, and in which case you’ll likely need a bridge, which is more or less a series of crowns.

With a new crown or bridge, you can experience a renewal of personal confidence that might seem strange at first: Getting used to smiling again for photos or laughing at jokes. Maybe even eating the foods you want to eat again, free from pain or worry.

These are just a few of the upsides that such critical dental work can offer you, all in the comfort of my practice’s warm and cozy

 

All-Porcelain Crowns For All-Around Brighter Smiles

 

While there are a variety of different materials we can use to craft your new crown or bridge, all-porcelain crowns can offer you the brightest possible smile without sacrificing resilience.

The increased strength of an all-porcelain crown or bridge is matched only by its aesthetic strength, which is noticeable even if your problem teeth are located far back inside of your mouth.

Unlike older crowns, state-of-the-art porcelain crowns transmit light more effectively and efficiently than a lot of other materials, resulting in a more vibrant grin that will transmit your newfound self-esteem. If there’s light, then you can guarantee your newly enhanced smile will be taking advantage of it.

With proper maintenance and oral hygiene, a crown or a bridge can last well over a decade. It’s hard these days to find anything that will last you that long for your money’s worth.

Crowns and bridges will restore glory to your smile, but can also improve the overall health of your entire mouth.

When you have exposed gaps, roots or sockets from lost teeth, your chances for developing a serious infection or disease in your gums are very high. This could lead to the loss of even more teeth, and result in costly, painful surgeries in order to treat.

A crown can help ward off those ugly prospects by protecting your entire smile from runaway damage down the road, preventing the need for costlier work in the future.

You’ll be able to look in that same mirror a few weeks from now, but instead of being disappointed by what you saw, you’ll probably need to buy a better mirror – one that’s worth reflecting your new smile!
