Give Your Damaged Tooth a Second Chance

How a dental crown from your dentist in Fayetteville, Georgia can strengthen your crowns

Teeth are strong, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be damaged. They can break from a sports injury or accident. Severe tooth decay can also destroy vital tooth structure. The good news is even in severe cases of tooth damage, a dental crown can restore both the beauty and the function of your tooth. Dr. Jeff Kendrick at Heritage Dental Associates in Fayetteville, Georgia wants to share how you can give your tooth a second chance with a dental crown.

So why shouldn’t you choose a metal filling instead? For many years metal fillings were the go-to treatment to repair teeth, but a large metal filling is more noticeable.

You should choose a crown for badly damaged teeth because a crown will hold your tooth together, strengthening it. A crown covers the entire visible part of your tooth. When you bite down, the biting pressure and stress are spread out evenly across the tooth surface, protecting the tooth from breakage.

A crown can be placed over most teeth, even if the tooth is badly damaged. A dental crown will restore the function of your tooth, but it can also add to the beauty of your smile because you can choose a full porcelain crown, which is both strong and beautiful. Porcelain crowns are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. If you prefer, conventional porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are also available.

If you have a damaged tooth, you can give it a second chance with a dental crown. For more information about dental crowns and other restorative and cosmetic dental services call Dr. Jeff Kendrick at Heritage Dental Associates in Fayetteville, Georgia today!
