With the consumption of sugar and starch-rich foods on the rise, millions of Americans wear dental crowns to protect their teeth from further decay and caries.
Are you thinking of getting a dental crown for your teeth? Talent Dental will be happy to discuss the options and update you regarding procedures and costs. Dental crowns are tooth-colored caps that the dentist places on existing teeth to protect them from further damage.
Most dentists will suggest a crown or cap to protect a chipped, cracked, or degraded tooth from weakening further. Since crowns are tooth-colored, they blend in with the rest of your dental arch and improve your appearance. Crowns are also ideal restorations that help makeover your smile.

They are also a more affordable dental restoration compared to more expensive porcelain veneers. Our trained dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, CA uses skillful crafting technology to help crowns blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. We specialize in expert dental restorations, and once the procedure is completed, you may even forget that you are wearing a crown.
However, please be aware that repeated cosmetic procedures can traumatize a tooth and wear down the enamel. This is why it’s important to seek the guidance of a qualified dentist in your local area.
Dental crowns are strong and durable and fabricated to last for at least 10 to 15 years. The minimum lifespan of front teeth dental crowns is at least five years. Good oral hygiene, regular brushing, and flossing help extend their lifespan. In fact, with proper care, crowns can even last a lifetime.
It’s good to be aware that crowns may be prone to cavities and fractures (since they cover natural teeth). Brushing and flossing around them help prevent the need for frequent crown replacements.
