Dental Crowns Can Strengthen Your Teeth and Improve Your Smile

Here at Washington Dental Care, our ultimate goal is to help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. We know that you have many dental clinics to choose from, so we have worked hard to provide top-notch services and treatments for every customer that walks through our door. If you have a tooth that has been weakened by decay or an injury, then we can offer high quality services such as dental crowns.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental CrownIf a dentist suggests crowns for teeth in your mouth, then it means that some of the teeth can be saved by placing a protective cap over the tooth. In some situations, the tooth is so weak that it is unable to stand alone and you are risking permanent damage that might cause the tooth to be lost. Other times, dental crowns are used for cosmetic reasons, to improve the appearance of the smile.

When a dental crown is placed over a tooth, there are several steps that need to be completed before the treatment is complete. This process requires two appointments: the first appointment to prepare the tooth and take a mold of the space that needs to be covered, and a second appointment to put the crown in place.

Do You Need a Dental Crown Procedure?

Are you wondering if a dental crown procedure is right for you? Then you should call our office at Washington Dental Care to schedule a consultation with Dr. Peter Hammes. There are a variety of reasons why a person can benefit from dental crowns, and these are some of the most common situations that might require this dental treatment:

  • A tooth is cracked or broken
  • A big cavity is removed and the space needs to be filled
  • A tooth needs to be re-shaped to improve the appearance of the smile
  • A bridge needs to be attached to fill in the space where teeth are missing
  • A root canal has been completed and the tooth needs to be strengthened
  • dental implant was placed and a tooth needs to be placed over the implant
  • A weakened tooth needs to be strengthened to prevent it from breaking

Improve Your Smile With A Quality Crown For Your Tooth

Tooth crowns serve two purposes, because they strengthen your teeth and make your smile look great at the same time. If you choose to have a crown placed in your mouth, you can rest assured that it will be durable and long-lasting. The final result is a capped tooth that functions like a natural tooth.
