Do You Have Trouble Eating Due to a Broken Tooth?

The holidays are just around the corner, and you know what that means — plenty of food to be cooked and eaten!

But, if you’ve been dealing with a broken or decaying tooth, then eating may have become cumbersome to you. You’re probably thinking you won’t be able to enjoy that warm, delicious stuffing with croutons, or the readily available bowl of chips to snack on.

Don’t let a damaged tooth stop you from eating what you want. In just a matter of days, a dental crown or a cap can help you enjoy the food you’ve been avoiding all this time. Crowns are an easy procedure for you and the dentist, and they take very little time.

What is a dental crown?

A crown, or a cap, is a custom-made hard covering that encases your entire tooth, restoring it to the original shape and size. Crowns are typically made of porcelain, due to its affordability, durability, reliability, and the fact that it looks natural with a color that matches the rest of your teeth.

To create the dental crown, your dentist will scan your mouth to help create the right shape for fit and appearance. Then, a mold will be created to for a temporary crown that you can wear until your permanent one is made.

Not only do dental caps help you take a bite out of your favorite foods again, but they also restore your smile. Eating and smiling without worry will increase your confidence, helping you lead a happier, healthier life!

Do I need a crown?

For many patients, the dental staff will do everything they can to restore your teeth naturally. But often times, restorations like dental crowns are necessary. Your dentist will work with you to determine the best procedure for your case.
