What Are Crowns?

A crown is a type of dental restoration option that can be used for badly damaged teeth. The crown is like a cap that is placed over the tooth. Crowns are often made of either ceramic or metal alloys. Crowns are most often used to restore badly damaged or decayed teeth. However, crowns can be used to help replace a missing tooth as well. 

Crowns for Missing Teeth

If you are missing a tooth dental crowns in Trenton, MI could help. For missing teeth, crowns can be used along with bridges and a pontic. A pontic is a false tooth that will replace your missing tooth. A crown will be placed on the teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The bridge will be attached to the crowns and the pontic will be attached to the bridge to sit in the gap left by the missing tooth. 

This is a great option for patients who do not wish to undergo dental implant surgery. 

Crown Care

Caring for crowns is very similar to caring for your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing are essential to keep the crown clean and healthy. In addition to this, you will also want to avoid chewing or biting on anything hard. This can damage the material used to create the crown. You should also avoid or limit the consumption of dark liquids in order to maintain the coloration of the crown.
