Real Patient Results with Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns Can Solve a Number of Dental Issues
Dr. Whiteman is a very honest and conservative dentist, so he will never recommend a crown unless he believes that you can truly benefit from one. Our same-day crowns can address a number of issues, including:
Crowns can strengthen teeth that have been significantly damaged by trauma or decay. When teeth cannot be repaired with a filling, inlay, or onlay, a crown can provide the necessary coverage. However, it is important to remember that teeth that are not strong enough to support dental crowns may need to be extracted.
If tooth decay has reached the inner portion of your tooth, the resulting infection may require root canal therapy. Following a root canal, Dr. Whiteman will cover the tooth with a crown to protect the remaining tissue.
Issues such as discolored teeth, disproportionately sized teeth, and minor gaps can be corrected with dental crowns. Porcelain veneers can also conceal similar aesthetic issues, but may not provide enough coverage for certain cases.
Before Dr. Whiteman can place a crown, a certain amount of healthy dental tissue is required for support. If a tooth cannot support a crown, extraction at our dental office serving the greater Boston area may be necessary. In such cases, our dentist can help you replace your tooth with a dental implant-supported crown. Implant-supported crowns stop the jawbone recession that follows tooth loss and don't require modification of adjacent teeth like a dental bridge. Dr. Whiteman has the training and technology needed to place and restore dental implants on-site.

Protecting Your New Dental Crown
The medical-grade porcelain used to construct a dental crown is extremely durable, but it is not indestructible. Even with the best care, you will eventually need to replace the restoration. However, there are certain guidelines that can help your dental crown last for up to a decade, including:
Be Careful What You Eat
Hard and sticky foods can damage or dislodge a restoration.
Practice Good Dental Hygiene
You can care for your restoration like natural teeth, but it is important to use non-abrasive toothpaste to avoid scratches to the porcelain.
Regular Visits to the Dentist
Maintaining a regular biannual dental exam schedule will help keep your restoration in good shape.
Minimize Daily Wear and Tear
Wearing a nightguard will avoid excessive wear. Habits such as biting your nails or opening packages with your teeth should also be avoided.
