Restore Your Smile
Dental crowns have been around for almost as long as dentistry itself, and for good reason. Though the materials and technology have vastly improved over time, crowns are still one of the most affordable and versatile dental options available to restore the function and cosmetic appearance of a damaged or missing tooth. Dr. Jeff Kendrick at Heritage Dental Associates, in Fayetteville, GA offers a range of cosmetic and restorative dental options for the entire family.
Restore Your Smile with Crowns in Fayetteville, GA
A crown (also known as a cap) is dental restoration used to restore function and the cosmetic appearance of a tooth that has been damaged by severe tooth decay, or chipped or broken in a fall, accident or through a sports injury. Crowns can also be used to replace missing teeth as part of a dental bridge.
Why Choose Dental Crowns?
Crowns are one of the most common dental restorations due to their reliability. They can even help to save a tooth from extraction and more intensive and painful treatment. When a cavity becomes too large to be treated with a dental filling, it can erode a large portion of the tooth and expose the root and pulp (nerves and soft tissue inside of every tooth) to bacteria and infection, increasing the risk of serious oral health problems like gum disease and bone loss. A crown can strengthen and restore the remaining healthy portion of the tooth.
Crowns are also an effective option to repair cosmetic problems like chips and cracks, gaps, and badly stained and discolored teeth that can't be treated with professional teeth whitening products.
