It is important that everyone visit their dentist at least twice a year for regular exams and cleanings. Aside from that, you should make sure that you visit your dentist whenever you are experiencing any symptoms that are painful or out of the ordinary. Here at Advanced Dental Care our Foxboro cosmetic dentist can provide you with a wide range of other procedures that you may be interested in as well. Procedures such as the application of dental crowns can be used to improve your bite as well as improve the appearance of your smile, too.
Dental crowns are used for many different reasons and to meet different ends, as well. For the most part, dental crowns are applied after root canal therapy has been implemented on a patient. This initial procedure involves the removal of decayed or infected tooth mass, which can leave the tooth lacking once the procedure is over. In order to restore the tooth to its original shape, which will also restore its function, a dental cap or crown is applied. This involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the tooth in question and molding the resin into the shape desired and needed. The resin is set and will look like a complete tooth, as a result. Here at Advanced Dental Care, our Foxboro cosmetic dentist can provide patients with dental crowns for other reasons as well. They can be used to repair teeth that have been broken or chipped so that they look good as new. They can be used to cap cracked teeth to prevent pressure from aggravating the tooth and the nerve. Dental crowns can also be used for the purely cosmetic reason of simply cover up stained or yellowed tooth roots by masking them with the resin and letting it set, resulting in a completely white tooth.
If you would like to learn more about dental crowns or if you believe that you could benefit from the application of one or more, whether for medical or cosmetic reasons, please call us here at Advanced Dental Care today. We can set up a date and time for you to meet with our Foxboro cosmetic dentist to have the issue resolved whenever works best for you.
