Dental crowns are one of the most popular and widely used dental treatments today. They can serve many purposes from cosmetic to restorative, helping patients to keep their natural teeth that have become damaged or diseased.
Dr. Charles Nottingham uses high quality porcelain crowns for lasting comfortable results that are custom made to blend with your natural smile. A dental crown can strengthen a tooth that has become compromised by disease or damaged for a variety of reasons, avoiding the need for extracting the tooth and maintaining oral health.
Modern dentistry has established the importance of keeping the natural teeth for better long term dental health. Tooth loss can lead to additional dental problems, including bone shrinkage in the jaw due to the lost tooth root.
Dental crowns are stronger and more durable than dental veneers and make the tooth stronger!
Dr. Nottingham will custom fit and color match your porcelain crown to meet your cosmetic expectations while improving your dental health.
Listen to a patient testimonial on the benefits of dental crowns and how they enhanced her smile:
Dental crowns fit over the tooth like a cap, protecting it from further damage and decay. With proper dental care and regular visits for professional exams and cleanings where Dr. Nottingham can inspect the crown and check for wear, it can last for many years.
If you have a damaged tooth, come on for a visit to see if a dental crown is the solution for your dental problem. Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience and will require more extensive- and expensive- dentistry to resolve.
The dental crown procedure is easy and relatively pain free!
