Do you have a fractured, chipped, or cracked tooth? Are your worn teeth creating an unbalanced bite? Ask our office about dental crowns in Timonium, MD. Dr. Paul Karpovich provides his patients with tooth crowns as a restorative dental treatment. This is because crowns can improve the look and function of a natural tooth or dental implant. With dental crowns, patients can comfortably and confidently bite and chew with added strength and durability. Dr. Karpovich always thoroughly examines the smile to determine if crowns are the right option for his patients. He works with patients as individuals to find the right restorations for their needs.
Dental Crown FAQs
Learn more about crowns with answers to these frequently asked questions:
What are dental crowns made of?
Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain fused to metal, or porcelain ceramic. We prefer porcelain ceramic crowns because they blend in with the natural smile. They can also still provide the strength and durability of metal or gold crowns.
How do I care for my dental crowns?
Patients can gently brush and floss on and around their dental crowns. We will also recommend that patients eat soft foods directly after they receive their crowns. Hard or sticky foods can cause damage or loosen the crown. Patients should also continue to visit the dentist on a regular basis. We provide detailed dental cleanings and can examine your crowns at these routine visits.
Can I whiten my dental crowns?
No, just like other treatments like veneers or dental bonding, dental crowns do not respond to professional whitening treatment. Many patients receive dental crowns to brighten the appearance of dull or discolored teeth. If you have an old crown that has become stained over time, call our office. We will help plan your new dental crown.
