Do you have a damaged tooth? Are you worried about a chip or crack? You should because those can get worse over time. Call us today at 574-208-5668 to repair and beautify damaged teeth with dental crowns.

What Is A Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a cap made to look just like one of your natural, healthy teeth. It’s placed over the visible part of your tooth. Each dental crown from our South Bend, IN dental office are made just for your teeth.

The dental crown procedure is easy and routine for Dr. Hurcomb. That’s because she has training and years of experience to know how to place dental crowns right. By calling us today, you are getting closer to repairing that tooth.

Here’s how dental crowns can be used to repair, beautify, and even save your teeth.

How Dental Crowns Help Your Smile

Replace a lost tooth with a fixed dental bridge.

Losing a tooth is never a great thing. Even if you had a tooth removed on purpose, you’re still left with a gap in your smile. You need a replacement. Until you do, it can be harder to chew and even talk. Your smile as a whole will look odd, too.

That’s why you should call our South Bend, IN dental office today for an appointment. Dr. Hurcomb can fill that space for you with a fixed dental bridge. Three crowns are used in this restorative dentistry treatment. One is the replacement tooth. The others hold that tooth in the gap.

Replace a lost tooth with a dental implant.

Fixed dental bridges work great. If you want a longer-lasting, more durable option, you want a dental implant. An artificial root is surgically placed where the tooth used to be. Then a dental crown is placed atop that implant. This way, you get a replacement that’s as close to a real tooth as possible.

Call us today at 574-208-5668 for a dental implant. Dr. Hurcomb has both training and experience to place your dental implant safely and correctly. Once placed, you will be able to chew and talk normally again. Plus, people can love seeing a full smile.

Repair a tooth damaged by a sports injury or other accident.

You can’t really predict accidents or injuries. You never know when a stray puck or foul ball might come at you. You can even just trip and land hard. Although enamel is strong, it’s not indestructible. You can have a tooth that’s chipped, cracked, or even ready to fracture wide open.

That’s why you need to call Dr. Hurcomb today. The longer you wait, the bigger that problem can become. Dr. Hurcomb knows how to carefully place a dental crown over your damaged tooth. This will hold that tooth together. It also protects damaged areas, preventing them from getting worse.

Repair a tooth with a cavity too big for a dental filling.

Accidents and injuries aren’t the only way you can get damaged teeth. Cavities are actually much more common. These holes in your enamel happen when bacteria get out of hand. Normally, a dental filling repairs the damage. But if the cavity gets too big, the filling doesn’t have enough healthy enamel to bond with.

By calling our South Bend, IN dental office today, you can repair a large cavity with a dental crown instead. Once she removes the bacteria and damaged enamel, Dr. Hurcomb will place a dental crown over your tooth. You’ll have the damage repaired, and your tooth will look great.

Cover unsightly stains, including intrinsic ones that cannot be lifted.

There are two ways your teeth can get stained. The common way is by enjoying dark foods and drinks (like coffee) for so many years. The other way is through trauma or side effects of certain prescriptions. These are intrinsic stains, and they cannot be removed.

Dr. Hurcomb can place a dental crown over a stained tooth. When you call us today, you’re one step closer to covering both kinds of stains.

Protect a tooth with worn spots in the enamel.

Sometimes, the damage to your enamel is subtle. If you grind your teeth a lot (such as with bruxism), it’s easy to get worn spots in your enamel. These spots are weak points on your teeth. It’s much easier to get chips, cracks, and even cavities there.

By calling us today, you can schedule an appointment to get a dental crown on worn teeth. With digital X-rays and experience, Dr. Hurcomb can identify which teeth are worn enough to need a dental crown. Once placed, your teeth will be strong and healthy again.

Call us TODAY at 574-208-5668 to get dental crowns. The dental crown procedure is routine, something Dr. Hurcomb has done many times. At Tulip Tree Dental Care, we have dental crowns that can protect, whiten, and repair your teeth.
