Dental crowns offered by your dentist, Dr. Richard Hopgood of Advanced Dental Concepts in Andover, MA, provide several important smile dental-crownsbenefits. Whether you're concerned about a damaged tooth, want to protect a fragile tooth, or would like to completely change the appearance of a tooth, a crown may be a good option for you.


Crowns offer the ultimate protection for at-risk teeth

Wear and tear can take a toll on your teeth. After years of biting and chewing, you may develop a crack in a tooth, or it may become brittle and begin to crumble. These problems weaken teeth and may eventually cause painful, unsightly tooth fractures. Teeth can also weaken if you've had a root canal or a large filling.

Crowns offer a simple solution if you have a fragile tooth. These hollow restorations are able to completely cover teeth in order to absorb the pressure you produce when you bite and chew. They are made from a variety of durable materials that look just like tooth enamel (including porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, and resin) that are able to last for years on end.


Crowns restore fractured teeth

Restoring fractured teeth isn't just an appearance issue. If you don't add a crown to your tooth, chewing will become much harder and the broken ends of your tooth will be exposed to the air, an effect that can cause considerable pain.

Covering a fractured tooth with a crown will restore both its normal appearance and functionality, as well as ease your pain. Additionally, because your Andover dentist creates the crown from impressions of your mouth, your new crown will look and feel perfectly at home in your mouth.


Flaws disappear under crowns

Crowns are also used to conceal tooth imperfections, including injuries, discolorations, and odd shaping.
