Dental Crowns in Byron, MI

Are Dental Crowns a Good Investment?

There's no denying the fact that many of us are hard on our teeth. From time to time, you may experience a chip, crack, break or even suffer tooth decay damage. Fortunately, crowns are an excellent way to restore the overall look of your smile and provide a permanent solution.

Dental crowns are specifically shaped to look like your normal teeth. They get positioned over the existing damaged tooth to correct its imperfections. Both Dr. Schultz and Dr. Larson can manufacture custom-made crowns and successfully install them to reverse your damaged smile. Many patients notate how much their quality of life improves simply by restoring their damaged teeth.

What Are Dental Crowns Made Of?

Molar crowns can be made of numerous materials like palladium, chromium, gold, and nickel. All these metal materials are super strong and protect your crown from breakage. However, most people don't want to have metallic-looking crowns on their front teeth.

This is where crowns made of porcelain fused to metal come into play. These have a tooth-colored appearance in both shape and color. In fact, only you and Dr. Schultz and Dr. Larson will know that you have crowns. It's important to note that you may discover resin crowns in your online research. However, these aren't highly recommended by Dr. Schultz and Dr. Larson because they are made of a much cheaper material that wears down over time.

Should I Get Dental Crowns?

There are many reasons that Dr. Schultz and Dr. Larson may recommend that you get a dental crown. First and foremost, if you have a broken or chipped tooth, Dr. Schultz and Dr. Larson can easily construct a crown to restore its overall appearance. If you have a lot of internal decay inside of a tooth, then it's best to undergo a root canal treatment. This will remove the decay and allow Dr. Schultz and Dr. Larson to install a crown over the existing tooth.

One big question that many people have about getting a dental crown is how they're supposed to take care of it. A dental crown is specifically manufactured to be strong and mimic your regular teeth. You'll simply need to brush and floss around the crown like you would with your natural teeth. Other than immediately after your dental crown installation procedure, there's nothing special you must do to maintain the integrity of your new dental crown. This makes having one installed a great, permanent option to enhance the look of your smile and the function of your jaw.
