Is a chipped tooth causing you discomfort or leaving you reluctant to smile? Has decay left your tooth with visible damage? If you are in need of a dental repair, crowns can make your tooth look, feel, and function better in no time with long-lasting results.
At Coral Bay Family Dentistry in Davis, CA, your dentist, Dr. Tracey Cook, can get your tooth back in perfect shape with crowns.
How do crowns work?
Crowns are caps for teeth that are cemented over the damaged portion of your tooth. A crown can repair chips, cracks, decay, or other forms of damage. It can also be used to restore the shape of a tooth that has a protruding filling or a void from a cavity that can't be properly filled.
What are the benefits of dental crowns?
Crowns improve the appearance, function, and health of your tooth. A damaged tooth is susceptible to bacterial growth, infection, or decay, which can affect the health of your surrounding teeth and gums. Because crowns from our Davis, CA, office are custom made, they match the color and shape of your natural tooth so no one can tell you had a dental repair. Your ability to bite, chew, and brush will be improved once your tooth is no longer jagged, fractured, or decaying, so you can better keep up with your nutritional needs and oral hygiene routine.
How long do dental crowns last?
A crown can last for decades because it is made from durable materials and cemented into place. After numbing the area, your dentist scuffs off some of your tooth's surface to make room for the crown. It is cemented to your tooth and cured to make the hold strong and near-permanent.
Getting crowns in Davis, CA, could be the solution for your damaged tooth. Call Dr. Cook of Coral Bay Family Dentistry at (530) 753-2845 to book an appointment.
