Our adult teeth can last us a lifetime if properly maintained. Family dentists can now correct oral concerns with the proper instruments and skills. Crowns are just one of many such tools. Dr. Joseph Touhalisky practices family dentistry for adults and children, serving the Findlay, OH, area. With his years of expertise, he will be your guide in restoring your smile.

Patients that have been working to maintain their dentition may find that their teeth may need crowns. Their teeth may be very decayed or otherwise damaged. Crowns are material that is placed on top of the tooth to help protect it. Check out the benefits of getting crowns below:

  • Protecting a tooth after a root canal

A root canal is needed when the soft tissue inside the root of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can spread into the gum tissue.

  • Hold a damaged tooth together

A tooth that is split or cracked may need assistance in maintaining its integrity.

  • Increase the durability of a tooth

There are certain cases when the tooth is weak or worn down. A crown can lend some sturdiness, avoiding a broken tooth.

  • Improve the appearance of your smile

Patients experiencing extensive decay in a tooth may require a crown to improve its aesthetics.

  • Long-lasting

Crowns can last for many years if cared for properly. Your perfect grin can be had by avoiding hard foods and brushing daily.

Dental crowns may be the solution

Confidence in your smile will increase, knowing that your crowns can strengthen your teeth and reestablish that attractive smile. Are you interested in improving your smile?
