Did you know a dental crown can restore your smile? Well, it’s true! Dental crowns have many different uses and can protect a tooth from negative oral health. To help you understand more about dental crowns, our team here at Chet B. Hawkins DDS Inc in Boerne, Texas, is happy to give you some basic information on how dental crowns can complete your smile.
In a nutshell, dental crowns are custom-made to cover a tooth to restore it to proper health and size. There are many reasons a dental crown might be needed to restore a tooth. Some reasons may include cavities that become too large to fill, cracked or chipped teeth, a tooth that has become weak, and any other reason your dentist may need to place a crown over a tooth to protect it.
Dental crowns can be custom-made and blended to match your other teeth, so only your dentist would know it was there. Your dental crown is not subject to cavities, however, your surrounding teeth still are, so brushing and flossing are still needed to take proper care of your dental crown and oral health.
If you have questions or would like to find out if a dental crown is a great option for you, please call us today at 830-443-4352 to set up an appointment with Dr. Chet B. Hawkins. Our kind staff is happy to assist your smile in any way we can.
