1. Crowns can restore your smile for a long time

Dental crowns are mainly intended to restore teeth to health and relieve dental discomfort, but they also offer numerous cosmetic benefits. Because they fit over the existing tooth, they can instantly correct discoloration, staining, misshapen teeth, crookedness, chips, cracks, fractures, and more. Therefore, they can be used to correct some purely cosmetic issues, much like porcelain veneers cosmetic bonding, however, this may not be covered by your insurance. Consult with Dr. Huckin’s dedicated staff about what your insurance will and will not cover.

Plus, with conscientious care such as daily brushing and flossing, as well as routine examinations and cleanings with Dr. Huckin, these prosthetic teeth can last between 15 and 30 years.

2. Dental crowns reduce pain

Dr. Huckin often uses dental crowns to complete a restorative treatment, repairing damage to a tooth’s enamel or structure. If you suffer from extensive decay, an infection of a tooth’s root, or injury to your tooth enamel such as a fracture, chip, or break, you may feel pain when you eat or drink. If the issue is severe enough, you may have constant discomfort. A dental crown can protect your tooth against further damage while also reducing sensitivity.

3. Dental crowns are custom-made for each patient and it’s a simple procedure

You might think that getting dental crowns is a complicated or intense procedure. In reality, this treatment is minimally invasive and relatively straightforward. Once your enamel is cleaned and the damaged parts healthy or removed, Dr. Huckin will shape your tooth so that it can securely hold a crown. Next, he will take a mold of your tooth so it matches the shape, size, and hue of your natural teeth and send it to a dental laboratory. This process will usually take about two weeks. You will be given a temporary crown in the meantime. When it’s ready, Dr. Huckin will place it over your prepared tooth and it will be held in place with a strong bonding cement.
