Being told that you need a dental crown doesn't always seem like the best news; however, when you understand the benefits of getting your dental crowns at our Wilmington, DE dental office, you'll appreciate how they can restore your oral health.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A crown is designed to restore your entire tooth, while protecting your root structure. Dr. Mark Gladnick has been restoring teeth with dental crowns for over thirty years, and he'll customize your crown to match your existing teeth and complement your smile.
Crowns provide all the function of your natural teeth, which means that you'll be able to eat, brush, chew, and floss as you have always been used to doing. In fact, with the right home care and regular dental check-ups, your crown can potentially last for many years.
When Do I Need a Crown?
When your tooth becomes injured, fractured, chipped, or infected and requires a root canal, Dr. Gladnick will often recommend a dental crown to restore your tooth. A crown fits over your remaining tooth structure like a cap so your root is protected.
When you visit our office for regular cleanings and check-ups, you are often able to avoid situations that may cause the need for a crown. For example, if it's determined that your tooth is fractured during your routine check-up appointment, a dental filling may be able to restore your tooth. At every check-up appointment, we screen you for dental issues such as tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease, which are much easier to treat with less invasive treatment when you detect them early on.
When you need a dental crown, you can rest assured that you're in good hands when you choose to work with Dr. Gladnick. Because we use the finest dental materials, you'll know that you're receiving a restoration you can rely on for years to come.
