There are many benefits associated with dental crowns. They can strengthen, protect, and restore damaged teeth. In addition to all these benefits, dental crowns look and function just like natural teeth so they blend right in with the rest of your smile. Our skilled dentist, Dr. Nicholas Booker offers dental crowns at Booker Family Dentistry in Trenton. Learn more about how dental crowns could benefit you.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are caps that are placed over weak or damaged teeth to strengthen and protect them. Once a dental crown is in place, the natural tooth will no longer be visible. It will be completely encapsulated within the dental crown. However, dental crowns look and function like natural teeth so they look totally natural. At our office in Trenton, we can have dental crowns custom made specifically for your teeth for the best fit possible.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

The benefits of dental crowns are numerous. Some of the primary benefits include:

  • Strengthening weak teeth
  • Protecting against further damage
  • Restoring normal tooth functioning
  • They look completely natural
  • Concealing cosmetic flaws

Teeth that are too weak to bite and chew without extreme pain or sensitivity can be strengthened with dental crowns. Dental crowns give weak or damaged teeth a strong, new exterior so normal biting and chewing functions can resume. Additionally, dental crowns protect against further wear and tear or damage. Another benefit of dental crowns is that they are custom made to look completely natural and fit perfectly in place.

Dental crowns also offer the benefit of improving the appearance of teeth with cosmetic issues. Since dental crowns fit over problem teeth and completely encapsulate them, a wide range of cosmetic concerns can be concealed. For example, a chipped tooth can be made to appear whole again by placing a custom dental crown over the tooth. Other cosmetic issues that can be improved with dental crowns include cracks, discolorations, stains, spacing issues, and more.

Depending on your needs, dental crowns can help strengthen your smile or improve its appearance. Visit our office in Trenton to learn more about dental crowns and whether they are right for you. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Booker, call Booker Family Dentistry at (734) 675-5700.
