If you have had a damaged tooth in your smile in Greensburg, Indiana and it is causing you to feel self-conscious when you smile, we are happy to help by providing a dental crown restoration.

Dental caps, or crowns as they are commonly known, can restore a tooth’s function when the natural tooth is damaged. With the help of a dental crown, our dentist, Dr. Robert Eversole can replace the tooth, whether damaged by injury to the mouth from sports, accidental trauma or tooth infection. In fact, our Robert Eversole, DDS, PC team will make your smile look as good as new with a dental crown!

Crowns are custom-crafted to fit over damaged teeth so that they are strong, protected, and aesthetically pleasing once again. They are also useful for cosmetic reasons, as they can enhance a tooth that is discolored or unsightly to make it look natural again. Made from various materials such as porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and even gold, your crown will be made from the best material according to your needs.

Once you have your crown, there are some things you will want to do to protect it just as you do your own pearly whites:

–Avoid hard foods such as ice or hard candy.

–Don’t use your teeth as tools.

–Don’t bite your fingernails.

–Speak to your dentist if you grind and clench your teeth constantly (bruxism) as this can harm your crown.

–Prevent tooth decay and gum disease by brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day.

–Floss with interdental brushes, sticks, or dental floss, around the crown, especially where the gum meets the tooth.

–Maintain regularly scheduled dental cleanings to keep tartar away from your smile.
