veryone wants to do more of what makes them smile: trips to the beach, time spent with great friends, dinners out dining on your favorite dish. Flashing a smile during these moments of joy is your natural response, but too many people have to think twice before smiling big due to the fear of an unsightly smile. At Rosslyn Farms Dental Aesthetics, we know how hard it can be to hide your smile, which is why we’re here to break down the perfect dental solution for your smile insecurities. Dental Crowns - Rosslyn Farms’ solution for unsightly teeth - are a great way to enhance your smile and get back to feeling like yourself. What are dental crowns, and what cosmetic oral issues can they solve? The team at Rosslyn Farms Dental Aesthetics is here to break it down.

What is a Dental Crown?

Dental Crowns from Rosslyn Farms Dental Restore Your Smile

Dental Crown

Dental crowns are the dental solution designed to provide a lasting cosmetic fix to unsightly teeth. Crowns are custom-made, tooth-shaped covers that pop right on your existing tooth to cover and strengthen it. These crowns are typically made of porcelain, ceramics, or different resins that mimic the strength and appearance of surrounding teeth, turning a lackluster smile into a beautiful, natural-looking piece of art.

Commonly grouped with a working knowledge of dental crowns are dental bridges: a dental crown solution spanning across several teeth in lieu of a full or partial denture. By essentially creating a bridge across a missing tooth, dental bridges are anchors by crowns over otherwise healthy and viable teeth and set into place a false tooth. 

One of the greatest aspects of bridges and crowns, Rosslyn Farms Dental claims, is that it preserves and utilizes viable teeth. Rather than pulling teeth altogether and replacing them, healthy teeth are able to stay in place and anchor down a crown or bridge. This not only makes for a comfortable cosmetic repair but helps ensure that your jaw and mouth form and are shaped properly. If no viable teeth area available, your dentist may also opt to anchor the bridge with a dental implant.

Why Do People Get Dental Crowns?

Choosing Dental Crowns from Rosslyn Farms for Your Cosmetic Dental Needs

Like nearly all cosmetic dental solutions, people choose dental crowns from Rosslyn Farms Dental Aesthetics because they want to gain confidence in their smiles. Your smile is a sign of good hygiene, youthfulness, and natural beauty, making it important for many to preserve a beautiful and healthy smile for as long as possible.

However, maintaining a flawless smile isn’t as easy as it may seem. In the case of dental bridges mounted by crowns, many people use them as a solution for filling in the gaps from missing teeth. These missing teeth can be caused by oral health issues, aging, accidents and trauma, as well as holistic health issues. If you’re thinking about crowns and bridges for any of these reasons, you’re far from alone. Nearly 69% of adults from 35-44 years old have lost at least one permanent tooth, and by age 50 Americans lose an average of 12 teeth. By the time you turn 75, more than 26% of people have no natural teeth remaining, meaning crowns and bridges are a great way to make the most out of teeth that remain.

Age is far from the only factor that leads people to lose teeth and choose a dental bridge. Dental crowns can cover a cracked or broken tooth, a tooth that is too small, or a tooth that simply disrupts facial aesthetics as they currently exist. Athletes are frequent patients looking for a dental crown or bridge to preserve the look of their smiles, in addition to people wanting affordable options to enhance the appearance of their smiles.

Not only do people choose dental crowns because of how they work, but how well they work. Providing a handful of benefits to the patient, dental crowns and bridges keep our patients smiling out of pride and confidence.
