When teeth have been affected by decay and damage, they start to no longer be structurally sound. This can affect your ability to eat the food you love and can make it hard to just feel comfortable on a daily basis. Dr. Dave Watkins at Watkins Family Dental in Louisville, KY, can explain how crowns and bridges can help strengthen damaged teeth and stop you from causing any further damage to your smile!
How Crowns Can Save Your Smile
When left untreated, decay can severely impact your smile and can cause teeth to become weakened, and can cause further issues in your daily life. However, when you turn your tooth into royalty with crowns and bridges from your dentist in Louisville, KY, you can keep your natural tooth and save it from complete disrepair.
Crowns are designed to fully cover a damaged tooth, keeping it from experiencing any further damage or decay. Dental crowns can be made of different materials, but depending on the material you choose, it’s possible to fully match your crown to the color of your other natural teeth. It will also match your teeth in shape and size, making them almost completely indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.
A crown is permanent, so you won’t have to worry about making any adjustments at home. Crowns are also extremely easy to care for. When taking care of a dental crown, you should be treating it the same way you do a natural tooth. You should be sure to brush and floss daily and be sure to visit your dentist for regular checkups. This will help keep your smile totally healthy and can help preserve your crown for years.
