At our Nashua NH dentist’s office, we have the tools, training, and technology required to restore your mouth with natural-looking solutions that can last for years.
To that end, today we are going to share some facts about our dental crowns, which are one of the most versatile treatments in the realm of restorative dentistry. Keep reading, and then give us a call today at 603-546-7460 to request your consultation appointment with our team.
Dental Crowns Can Save A Damaged Tooth
Let’s start with the basics. At our office, a crown is a ceramic restoration that protects the tooth. We tend to place crowns for patients who have encountered extensive tooth decay, or who have fillings that are too big to restore again, to strengthen a tooth following root canal therapy, or for teeth that are heavily cracked. In such cases, the crown is placed over the tooth to keep the tooth functional for years to come.
Crowns Won’t Stain Like Real Teeth
Your crowns will be engineered to look and function just like your natural teeth. But there is one advantage that crowns have over real teeth! Teeth can stain with wear and tear, daily coffee consumption, or simply age. Our crowns, however, do not stain.
No Metal Is Required
It is hard for us to believe but there are still dental offices out there who insist on using metal in their dental crowns, even though this is completely unnecessary. While metal-based crowns are strong, patients who are stuck with these type of crowns often develop a gray line near their gum-line. This can be a little bit weird, which is why at Nashua Family Dentistry we offer all-ceramic crowns.
Crowns Are Not Permanent
In the modern era of dentistry we’re able to make stronger and stronger crowns that can last for many years, sometimes even decades. But, alas, the crown will not last forever. Why is that? Well, a crown can fail for a lot of reasons including poor oral health, sudden trauma, or it can gradually crack or break. The good news is that as long as there is enough healthy tooth beneath the crown, we can replace the bad crown with another crown.
Crowns Can Be Used In Conjunction With Implants
A dental implant can be used to replace a missing tooth, or even to stabilize dentures in some cases. Implants are among the most effective replacements because they function like the natural roots of your teeth, and are almost as strong. They can be restored with dental crowns so that they look just like your natural teeth, too. In fact, many of our patients with a single missing tooth opt to restore a single missing tooth with a dental implant and crown rather than a dental bridge.
