If you've been told you need a dental crown, one of the first questions you might have is "Why?" It's understandable; most dental patientscrowns wonder why they need certain procedures and restorations. Your dentists in Syracuse, New York, Dr. Nancy Yeates and Dr. Karen Lawitts, want their patients to feel comfortable and confident about their experiences, so they've outlined some of the benefits associated with dental crowns.

Protecting a Tooth

Minor decay can usually be repaired with a simple cavity filling. However, when decay is large or invasive, a filling may not be enough. In these cases, the tooth is prepared to remove the decay and accommodate a crown, which is a hollow tooth-shaped restoration made of metal or porcelain. When attached with a special bonding cement, crowns are an excellent replacement for natural teeth.

Root rescue

Extraction, or pulling, was once the preferred method of dealing with advanced tooth decay. However, research has proven that retaining your natural teeth is the best way to maintain good dental health. Crowns repair problems with the part of the tooth above the gums, allowing the roots of the teeth to stay firmly in place. Crowns also provide support for the surrounding natural teeth, which might otherwise shift out of place if a tooth was missing.

Cosmetic contribution

No one wants to have a missing tooth, especially one that's visible while smiling or talking. Crowns from your Syracuse dentist not only restore the function of a natural tooth; they're also carefully designed to look realistic. Dr. Lawaitts and Dr. Yeates use color charts to make sure your crown will match with your natural teeth, giving you a beautiful and complete smile.

Our ultimate goal is to provide you with the necessary treatments to keep your smile healthy and attractive for a lifetime. Contact the dental office of Dr. Karen Lawitts and Dr. Nancy Yeates in Syracuse, New York today to schedule an appointment!
