Did you recently suffer trauma to a tooth during an athletic event, or while working or even while driving? Even chewing can sometimes lead to dental trauma that might require restorative treatment. Both hard candies and ice are common causes of damage to teeth, in fact. There are a number of common causes for patients to require restoration of their smiles. Fortunately, in many cases modern dental restorations are designed to be both effective means of restoring the oral health and comfort, while also creating cosmetically-pleasing solutions. So if you suspect you could be in need of restorative treatment, there is no reason to delay a dental visit. Instead, speak with your dentist about how a seamless solution, like a dental crown, could be what your smile needs both functionally and esthetically!
Is a Tooth Damaged By Decay or Trauma?
In the case of deep cavities, infection, and even trauma to a tooth, a dental crown is often the recommended form of treatment. That is because crowns are strong and stable restorations, which are built to withstand a great deal of pressure, such as by the force that is exerted while chewing. This makes them a comfortable solution for restoring the smile after many dental problems.
Porcelain and zirconia crowns can also be made to blend naturally within the smile, allowing for confidence as one smiles, because few people will be able to detect that restorative work has been completed. This is important for those wishing to restore their smiles without compromising the beauty of their smiles.
