If you have damaged teeth, it might be possible to restore them with dental crowns. Teeth that are too worn down or weak to perform regular biting and chewing functions without extreme sensitivity or discomfort can be made strong again. Dental crowns provide a strong, new exterior for damaged teeth. Dr. Jocelyn Ocampo, Dr. Alexander Cho, or Dr. Jun Park, the family dentists at Eldersburg Dental Group in Eldersburg, MD, can restore your damaged teeth with dental crowns.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are hollow covers or caps that fit over damaged teeth to strengthen those teeth and protect them against sustaining further damage. Once a dental crown is placed over a tooth, that tooth will be completely encapsulated so only the crown will be visible. Since dental crowns are made to look just like natural teeth, they blend right in with the rest of your smile. One of the experienced family dentists at our office in Eldersburg, MD, can have custom dental crowns created for you.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns offer several benefits. A primary benefit is the restoration of damaged teeth that have not been able to function properly because they are too worn down or weak to bite and chew food. Other notable benefits include:

  • Making damaged teeth stronger
  • Protecting against additional damage
  • Restoring biting and chewing functions
  • Completely natural-looking
  • Customized for a perfect fit
  • Concealing cosmetic issues

In addition to strengthening, protecting, and restoring damaged teeth, a significant benefit or advantage of dental crowns is that they are custom made. The size, shape, and color of each crown is customized for the specific tooth it is restoring. Customization allows for the best possible fit and most natural look.

Another exciting benefit of dental crowns is that they can enhance your smile by concealing cosmetic issues. For instance, the appearance of teeth that are cracked, chipped, stained, or discolored can be dramatically improved when a custom dental crown is placed over each one. One of our knowledgeable family dentists can discuss the many ways dental crowns can benefit your teeth.

Let us help you restore your damaged teeth by fitting you for custom dental crowns. Once those damaged teeth are restored, you will be able to resume normal biting and chewing functions.
