There are many reasons that our Harrisburg, PA, dentist, Dr. Ernest Fontaine, may recommend that a patient get a dental crown. After all, this simple restoration offers a host of both restorative/cosmetic benefits and is a common fix for teeth that are cracked, fractured, or have to undergo root canal treatment.

Here are just some of the benefits of getting a dental crown from our Harrisburg, PA, dentist:

  • Strengthens weak or damaged teeth
  • Preserves what’s left of a natural tooth
  • Improves the overall shape, color, and appearance of a tooth
  • Supports a severely cracked or broken tooth
  • Prevents further damage to a tooth
  • Covers a dental implant
  • Protects a tooth after getting root canal treatment
  • Holds a dental bridge in place to replace missing teeth
  • Improves appearance
  • Boosts confidence

With the proper care, these durable restorations can last up to 15 years, making it a great option for anyone who is dealing with a damaged, weak, or malformed tooth. Since crowns are custom-made to fit your tooth, you won’t have to worry about them being bulky or unnatural. Plus, a crown is often made from a tooth-colored material such as composite resin or porcelain, ensuring that it will bear the look of a real tooth!

Each crown is created just for you, meaning that every contour and curve is designed to ensure that your crown looks just like the rest of your smile. No one will even be able to tell which tooth has a crown!

Crowns also offer both restorative and cosmetic benefits. Therefore, if you have a tooth that is malformed, misshapen, or severely discolored, placing a crown over the tooth could completely alter its shape, color, and size. While there are less invasive options such as veneers that can also hide imperfections, if your tooth is also damaged, then a crown may be the best way to restore and improve it.
