The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

A dental crown, or cap, can be a great way to support a tooth that’s cracked or damaged due to decay.  But like any procedure, we know that patients must weigh the benefits against the cost to make a well informed decision. To help you figure it out, we wanted to talk about the benefits of getting a crown.

Here are a few of the top benefits to having a crown:

  • Repairing damage due to tooth decay – A crown will halt the decay and allow you to use your tooth normally. It will also reduce tooth decay-related pain.
  • Restoring tooth function after a root canal  – A crown will enable you to use your tooth normally and without pain.
  • Prevent additional damage due to teeth grinding – A crown will act as a barrier to your actual tooth, hereby limiting damage. This is best used with other tools to reduce grinding, like a night-guard.
  • Improve the appearance of a tooth – A tooth that is discolored, too short,too tall, or too narrow can be covered with a crown to look more like the surrounding teeth.
  • Creating an anchor for a bridge – A crown can provide a solid and safe anchor for dental work, like a bridge.

Of course, there are a few things to be cautious about with a crown too. For instance, it’s vital that the crown be fitted properly. Not only is this necessary to ensure that you have a good bite, but it’s important to prevent bacteria from getting under the crown and causing tooth damage. If a crown is being used over a decaying, it’s important that all decay and any infection is cleaned out before the crown is placed.

When done properly, a crown can restore your ability to eat normally and give you years of reliable use. So while crowns do come with a higher price tag, they truly can improve your quality of life.
