While we all dream of the day we’re in love with our smile, we know this is no easy task, especially if we fall in the group of those that don’t even like to smile in photographs! You’re not alone, and you don’t have to feel stuck in a rut of thinking there is no way out. Dental crowns are a great cosmetic dentistry option for those that want to transform their smile. In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits associated with dental crowns and how they have the potential to change your life for the better!
What Dental Crowns Are
Dental crowns are small dental devices, or caps, that completely cover your teeth to improve aesthetics and function. If you’ve ever been the victim of an injury or just genetically weak teeth, dental crowns are a great option as their main purpose is to protect your teeth from damage. Dental crowns go beyond functionality though, giving you a beautifully bright and aligned smile.
What Benefits Dental Crowns Provide
Dental crowns typically will last five to 10 years, but if cared for correctly, can last up to 15 years. Crowns replace missing teeth, that way if your teeth are misaligned, the crown will make up for the missing tooth, and you’ll feel better with a full smile. Crowns can even repair broken or cracked teeth to give you more useful functionality, they can give you a white smile, and with the right material, no one will even know you’re wearing the caps.
How to Care for Your Dental Crowns
Brushing and flossing normally will ensure the longevity of your caps, and don’t forget to see your dentist at least twice a year or whenever you feel an abnormality in your caps.
