Will You Need A Dental Crown Because Of Your Cavity?

In many cases, dental crowns make saving teeth that are in poor condition possible. When a serious cavity affects your tooth, or when you have a dental injury, your dentist will determine what has to happen to keep the tooth safe, and functional, over time. There are cases where a problem is mild enough to be fixed with a dental filling, so more of your natural tooth structure stays in place. However, there are also times when this is not an option. In these instances, having the ability to place a dental crown means saving you from tooth loss. In addition to providing custom crowns that look like natural teeth, and offer lasting support for your dental function, our Bellaire, TX dental practice can have your restoration ready after just one appointment!

Crooked Teeth Can Cause Problems For Your Dental Function

When people consider the problems with crooked teeth, they often focus on the cosmetic dental concerns associated with the matter. A smile affected by poor alignment can look less healthy, and the issue can make a person feel less attractive. What should be understood is that crooked teeth can also negatively affect a person’s oral health. One problem with poor dental alignment is that it can change your bite function in ways that create problems for you over time. Certain teeth may become more prone to troubles because you have to rely on them to absorb more biting and chewing impact. A flawed bite may also be the reason a person experiences chronic facial and jaw pains. Your Bellaire, TX dentist’s office is prepared to offer orthodontic treatment that can improve an individual’s smile, and their oral health. (more…)
