A dental crown can effectively solve the kinds of problems that affect a tooth’s health, and its ability to withstand biting and chewing pressures. Durability is certainly important for your dental restoration. After all, you want a crown that can effectively do your tooth’s job, and you want it to continue doing that job for many years. Fortunately, there are crowns that can provide these functional advantages, while also providing you with cosmetic benefits. Your Prairie Village, KS dentist’s office can provide you with the kind of restorative dental care that helps you continue to smile, bite, chew, and speak with confidence!
Your Restorative Work Can Protect Your Tooth Without Changing Your Appearance
If you are concerned about the effect a dental crown might have on your appearance, you can be relieved to find out about the cosmetic quality of porcelain- and zirconia-made restorations. These crowns can imitate your tooth structure, so that you show off a great smile even after having a problem tooth repaired. While both are durable, zirconia can provide improved durability, meaning you can bite and chew without worry. With that said, you should still take precautions – restorations, like natural teeth, are not indestructible! Chewing on hard surfaces, or ignoring a teeth grinding habit, can lead to negative consequences.
Making Long-Term Smile Care A Priority
How can you make sure your smile stays healthy and attractive in the long term? Make sure your daily behaviors are not putting you at risk for dental troubles. Take the time to brush your teeth twice a day, and floss every day, while maintaining a diet that is low in sugar, and high in nutrients. You should also keep up with regular dental checkups, so that you can keep up with changes in your oral health that you should know about.
