Could a dental crown improve your smile and oral health? Let’s find out!

It isn’t always easy to decide which kind of restoration your smile will need. Luckily, we don’t expect you to come in knowing all the answers. Our New Jersey, NJ, family dentist, serving the Mount Olive Township & Budd Lake, NJ, Community, Dr. Steven Abrams will be able to examine your smile and determine what it needs to be its healthiest.

If you are thinking about getting a dental crown, you may be curious to learn more about this restoration and what it will do to boost your smile’s strength and appearance.

What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is designed to look just like the crown of a real tooth. This restoration is shaped like a tooth but is hollow on the inside, that way it can easily fit over a tooth to change its appearance or restore strength and function if a tooth has become damaged or weak. A crown is a great protective barrier for a tooth and can even preserve it for years to come.

What are the benefits of crowns?

If your family dentist has recommended that you get a dental crown, you may be wondering what it can do for your smile. There are so many benefits you will receive when you get a crown at our Our New Jersey, NJ, family dentist, serving the Mount Olive Township & Budd Lake, NJ, Community, including:

  • A tooth that is the ideal shape, size, length, and color
  • A tooth that is stronger and more durable
  • A tooth that is strong enough to handle your jaw’s powerful chewing and biting forces
  • A restoration that can support a dental bridge to replace one or more missing teeth
  • A restoration that can also be used to cover a dental implant to replace missing teeth
  • A restoration that provides more support and stability when a large filling is no longer able to properly support a tooth
