Are Dental Crowns A Good Idea?

When your teeth aren't looking their best, it can leave you hesitant to flash a smile. Damaged teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile but can impact your oral health and dental function. If you have chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, dental crowns can repair your smile.

At Glendale Dental Associates, Dr. Jin Cho, Dr. Sopanis Cho, and Dr. Darlene Vaughan can fit you with dental crowns at our Indianapolis, IN, office.

Why might I need a dental crown?

If you have one or more of the following, a dental crown may be the right choice for you:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Voids from a large cavity 
  • Protrusions from a filling
  • Severe discoloration

How can a dental crown benefit me?

A dental crown conceals the damage and restores function to your tooth. A crown looks like a cap for your tooth and is tinted, shaped, and sized so it matches the rest of your teeth. A crown not only makes your tooth look healthy and attractive, it also improves the function so you can bite and chew like normal. Fixing your tooth also improves your oral health by protecting it from bacterial growth, decay, or possible infection. You will be better able to brush and floss to maintain the health of your tooth.

How long does a crown last?

Dental crowns from our Indianapolis, IN, office can last up to 30 years. As with any dental implement, you should take care not to bite extremely hard or sticky foods. Make sure to keep up with brushing, flossing, regular dental examinations, and professional cleanings.
