“Crowns are like helmets for the teeth” – Dr. Covalt, Bend Family Dentistry
At Bend Family Dentistry, we understand the importance of a healthy, beautiful smile. In this blog, we’ll dive into what dental crowns are, their benefits, and the cutting-edge services we offer to help our patients achieve their best smiles.
Understanding Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are custom-fitted caps placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are typically used when a tooth has sustained significant damage that cannot be repaired with fillings or other treatments. By covering the entire tooth starting at the gum line, crowns provide a protective barrier against further damage while also enhancing the tooth’s aesthetics.
“Crowns are there to be a sturdy foundation for that tooth so that you can chew and function on it normally” – Dr. John Covalt
Benefits of Crowns
The benefits of dental crowns are both functional and cosmetic. Functionally, they offer a durable solution for weakened teeth, allowing patients to chew and speak without discomfort. Crowns also play a vital role in dental procedures such as bridging gaps between teeth and covering dental implants. Cosmetically, they are tailored to match the natural color and shape of your teeth, making them a popular choice for improving the appearance of misshapen or severely discolored teeth.
