Crowns in South Bend, IN

Many things pose a threat to teeth. For example, ice chips, popcorn kernels and hard candies can all leave your teeth chipped or cracked as can an injury while playing a contact sport, such as basketball or hockey. Also, poor dental hygiene habits can result in tooth decay, which may also change the look of a tooth. No matter how careful a person is, there is still a good chance that he or she will damage at least one tooth throughout the course of his or her life. Luckily, our South Bend dentists can help by offering dental crowns.

Our South Bend dentists can place a crown completely over a tooth, to help protect it against experiencing further trauma or decay. Crowns can be used to protect a weak tooth from breaking, hold a dental bridge together, cover a misshapen or seriously discolored tooth or cover a dental implant. When put in place, a crown can cover the full visible portion of a tooth that is at or above the gum line.

People who are worried that their dental crown will be very noticeable, shouldn’t be. Our South Bend dentists offer porcelain dental crowns that have the look of a natural tooth. Unlike stainless steel or metal, porcelain not only has a similar color as teeth, but it also reflects light in a similar way as enamel. A cosmetic dentist can easily make sure that a porcelain crown matches the surrounding teeth, so no one will ever know that it is not a natural tooth. A dentist can also make sure that a damaged tooth does not need extensive dental work, such as a root canal or removal. If anything is needed, our South Bend dentists can take care of it before it becomes a serious issue. Furthermore, our South Bend dentists can set people up with a flexible payment schedule as well as discounts to make sure that everyone who is interested in getting crowns is able to afford them.

There is little preparation needed for a dental crown procedure. All it takes is a little local anesthetic applied to the tooth, and then the crown can be permanently cemented into place, where it can last for up to 15 years. The best part is that a crowned tooth does not require any special care, just normal brushing and flossing.
