Find out how this simple tooth-shaped restoration could do wonders for your smile.

While we all hope that the efforts we put into caring for our smile pan out when it comes to maintaining good oral health, there are dental crownssome scenarios that just cannot be predicted. If you are dealing with damaged teeth, then it’s time you discussed with our Waterford, MI dentists Dr. Sean Stannard and Dr. David Studt how dental crowns could benefit you.

Improved Appearance

Obviously, a dental crown is designed to look like a healthy natural tooth. And while a dental crown is often used to cover damaged teeth, it doesn’t mean that they can’t also be an option for those patients looking to make aesthetic changes to their smile, too.

If you are dealing with a tooth that is severely cracked, chipped, stained or malformed, then a dental crown can easily mask all these problems and give you a tooth that looks natural and is definitely more pleasing to look at.

Better Oral Health

A tooth that is weak due to decay or infection is negatively impacting your oral health. These are issues that won’t go away without the proper treatment from your Waterford, MI general dentists. In fact, if you let decay or an infection continue to progress you may end up losing the tooth altogether. By turning to us for treatment as soon as possible you can prevent tooth loss.

Restored Chewing

Having a weak tooth can often make it difficult to chew, particularly if you are also experiencing dental pain. But when you get a dental crown be ready to enjoy all your favorite foods again without worrying about pain or discomfort. Plus, you won’t have to worry that every time you bite into something crunchy or hard that you may damage your tooth further.

A Stronger Tooth

A dental crown is designed not only to restore your tooth’s shape but also its ability to function. While teeth are pretty durable they aren’t impenetrable. A weak tooth needs a strong outer layer to protect it from further deterioration. A dental crown provides that additional protection that your tooth needs to remain strong.
