Dental Crown ImageDid you know that getting a dental crown is the most common restorative dental procedure according to the American College of Prosthodontists? Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover a damaged natural tooth to hide cracks, chips and other imperfections. If you’re thinking about getting dental crowns in Pocono, here are some of the top advantages that you can look forward to should you opt for this cosmetic treatment.

Restores function

When a tooth is severely cracked or damaged, it becomes weak and fragile. This means that even sitting down to certain meals can make the tooth even more susceptible to damage; however, a dental crown goes completely over the natural tooth to fully restore function back into your smile, making it significantly easier to chew and speak. Plus, the crown provides superior protection against further damage and decay, creating a shield around your natural tooth.

Improved aesthetics

Dental crowns are made from porcelain or composite resin, so they are designed to look no different than natural teeth. They even offer the same translucency that you expect from real teeth. Therefore, you can finally get the restored and perfect smile you once had without anyone knowing you’ve had work done. Only you will know that you have a dental crown.
Furthermore, dental crowns made from porcelain are stain resistant, so you can enjoy all your favorite foods and beverages without having to worry that they will stain your new crown.

Confidence boost

If you’re not happy with your smile, you may also find that your self-esteem has taken a nosedive. After all, smiling offers a host of emotional, mental and physical health benefits that you miss out on if you are suffering with damaged or missing teeth. However, once you get your dental crown you can finally enjoy all the advantages that smiling has to offer. You will find that having a full, beautiful smile will be the ultimate boost to your self-esteem.
