Are you nervous about smiling because you have a damaged tooth? With the help of a dental crown restoration, you can once again smile with confidence. In fact, our Celeste M. Eckerman DDS LLC team in Minden, Nevada will make your smile look as good as new with a dental crown.

Also known as caps, dental crowns are designed to restore a tooth’s function when the natural tooth is damaged. Whether the damage is from injury, accidental trauma or tooth infection, Dr. Celeste M. Eckerman can replace the tooth with a crown.

Crowns can be used to fix cosmetic flaws from a discolored or unsightly tooth, in addition to replacing a damaged tooth. Crowns can be crafted from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or even gold. Your crown will be created from the material best suited to your needs with the help of our dentist.

Once your crown is placed, you will want to do the following:

–Avoid hard foods like ice or hard candy.

–Use your teeth to chew, not as substitute tools or to bite your fingernails.

–Avoid clenching and grinding your teeth (known as bruxism).

–Brush your teeth at least twice a day to keep tooth decay away.

–Floss at least once a day, using interdental brushes, sticks, or dental floss around the crown, especially where the gum meets the tooth.

–Maintain regularly scheduled dental cleanings to keep tartar away from your smile.

If your smile needs help from a dental crown restoration and you would like to know more, please call 775-782-2799 today. Dr. Celeste M. Eckerman and our team in Minden, Nevada looks forward to helping you smile again with the help of our dental restorations!
