As a child, you are taught to care for your teeth with regular brushing and flossing. While this is something many people do well with, there are still instances when your teeth become damaged or aged. Your teeth can be very strongly attached to your jaw and work well, but be in danger of damage. If you have a tooth that is cracking, chipped or discolored, dental crowns can help save your tooth. Dental crowns are an excellent opportunity to give your tooth a longer lifespan. With the help of Dr. Roman Dziubyk and Dr. Lorelei Grise at Suburban Family Dental in Des Plaines, IL, you can achieve this goal.
Dental crowns are a fairly simple concept that is affordable and effective in keeping teeth that might be in danger of damage or loss. If you have teeth that are well connected in your mouth and strong, but for cracks and chips, dental crowns can be put into place to create a stronger longer lasting tooth. The crowns are created using a mold of the teeth they are for and then placed on top of the tooth holding it all together. This process is typically pain-free and can be accomplished in one or two visits to your Des Plaines dentist. The crowns are closely fit in color and size with the natural tooth being shaved or prepared for the fitted crown. This ensures that the crown looks and fits appropriately in the mouth.
