What does it take to protect a tooth that has been treated for a cavity or injury? There are different strategies for restorative dental work. From the placement of a dental filling to care for an incomplete smile with a prosthetic appliance, our Baxter, MN dentist’s office is prepared to help patients who have suffered problems with their oral health. When you need a dental crown to keep a tooth safe, we can make sure that you have the right one to truly protect you. In addition to making sure yours is strong enough to hold up against the pressure generated by your bite, we can supply a crown that preserves your smile by matching your healthy enamel!

What A Crown Does To Protect Your Tooth

A dental crown provides a degree of protection for a tooth that a filling will not match. When you need this kind of support, we can have a crown completely surround your tooth above your gumline. Acting in place of the tooth, your restoration will need to absorb pressure whenever you bite down. If it is in a prominent location, you can understandably hope to have a crown that matches your enamel. We offer different treatment options. You can have a durable metal crown to protect molars and premolars that need to supply more bite support, but we also have lifelike crowns for those teeth that are harder for people to overlook.

We Offer Different Kinds Of Crowns

Gold and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are effective at protecting back teeth that need to absorb more pressure but have less influence on how you look. These materials are remarkably strong; while gold crowns can have little resemblance to your enamel, you do have the option of taking a porcelain-fused-to-metal restoration, as it is surrounded by a lifelike porcelain substance to make it less distracting. If you need work done in more visible spaces, we do also offer porcelain and zirconia crowns. Both are remarkably lifelike, with zirconia offering superior protection.

We Also Help With The Prevention Of Problems That Require Restorative Services

We know it can be reassuring to hear that there are restorative services capable of preserving your oral health, bite function, and appearance. What you should also be clear on is the importance of preventive care even when you do have access to better restorative treatment. After all, any problem that demands this kind of care will leave you with permanent damage to your enamel! Take advantage of regular dental checkups in order to avoid potential oral health issues that require permanent alterations to teeth.
