Our Crowns Can Restore Dental Damage
A dental crown is a restoration that we can use to protect a tooth. We often place crowns for patients who have encountered extensive tooth decay, or who have fillings that are too big to restore again, or to strengthen a tooth following root canal therapy, or for teeth that are heavily cracked. Dental crowns serve to protect you from further pain, discomfort, or damage by completely covering your damaged tooth. No matter how bad your dental damage, our Kennewick team can likely repair it with crowns.
Our Crowns Won’t Stain
Your crowns will be designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. But there is one advantage that crowns have over real teeth. Your original chompers can stain with daily coffee or tea consumption, use of certain medications, and simply getting older. Our crowns, by contrast, never will.
Our Crowns Won’t Have Metal
We are using a special non-metallic material for a durable and lifelike solution that you can feel good about. Unlike porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, our dentists won’t need to fuse our unique BruxZir crowns to a metal base. As such, you won’t have to worry about a noticeable dark line appearing at your gums after a little while.
Our Crowns Can Last A Long Time
In the modern age of dentistry, we’re able to make strong crowns that can last for many years, sometimes even decades. We like to tell our patients that our crowns are practically impervious to chips or breaks. But in the long run, your crown will likely need to be replaced. A crown can fail on account of poor oral health, sudden trauma, or other causes. That said, as long as there is enough healthy tooth beneath the crown, we can replace the bad crown with another crown.
Our Crowns Can Be Used With Implants
If damaged or missing teeth are making you feel less confident or are preventing you from eating the foods that keep you healthy, it is definitely time to take some form of corrective action. A dental implant can be used to replace a missing tooth, or even to stabilize a set of dentures. Implants are one of the most effective replacements because they function like real roots, and are almost as strong. They can be restored with dental crowns so that they look just like natural teeth.
