Broken teeth are always a pain, and not just because they are painful. And no matter how it happened, your tooth has been damaged and it’s time for a crown. But is that the best option to fix your smile? Here are the benefits:

They’re natural-looking. Both porcelain and composite dental crowns have the look and feel of natural teeth, so don’t worry about people noticing. They’ll never know the difference. It may be cosmetic, but there is no reason anyone has to know that damaged or discolored teeth.

They’re durable. Crowns are there to last a while. In fact, they can last up to fifteen years depending on their care. Not only are they durable, but they are also stain-resistant. Porcelain is a great surface to restore teeth. Bonus? You no longer have to worry about staining.

They’re worry-free. Because dental crowns are cemented or anchored in place, you don’t have to worry about them slipping and sliding around in your mouth. This not only keeps you from being self-conscious about your dental work, but it will prevent further infection and/or decay after the surgery. In fact, your crowns are even better than your original teeth! Comfortability is the main benefit to the natural feel of a crown.

They’ll improve your speech. More than just a cosmetic procedure, replacing damaged teeth can also benefit your speech. And because they don’t move around in your mouth, dental crowns will make your speech sound clearer.

There are plenty of reasons to fix your tooth with a dental crown, but mostly, you are a more confident you.
