The Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges

The Benefits of Dental Crowns and Bridges

Feb 15, 2019

Think about this:  There are a number of factors that can damage a smile over time. Sports injuries, accidents, or trauma from a fall can all cause chips, cracks, and teeth fractures. On the other hand, there are times when the damage develops gradually and remains undetected until symptoms develop, such as tooth decay, a gum infection, or wear-and-tear caused by aging.  Whatever the case may be, you don’t have to live with a damaged or less than perfect,  smile. Dr. Maisa Idriss, a dentist in Spring, TX, offers a range of cosmetic and general dentistry services for you and your entire family.

A New and Improved Smile with Crowns and Bridges from our Spring Office

Dental crowns are among the most reliable restorations available. Crowns (also known as caps because they cover the remaining portion of a damaged tooth) restore the tooth’s surface, cover cosmetic damage, and replace missing teeth –  when used in conjunction with a bridge.

When would  Dental Crowns be good for me?

The most common uses for crowns include:

  • The instance when a cavity is too large to be filled by a
  • standard filling
  • After root canal therapy
  • To replace a missing tooth
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To strengthen a fractured or weak tooth

Upon completion of a comprehensive dental exam, Dr. Idriss  will be able to recommend the best restoration and procedure for your circumstances.

How Long can I expect Dental Crowns to  Last?

A typical crown is designed to last an average of approximately 15 years, but in many cases they  last  much longer. Like natural teeth, crowns require good oral hygiene and follow up with preventive care from Dr. Idriss  to last as long as possible and ensure you  the best oral health.
