What are Dental Crowns?

Posted on March 15th, 2019 by Dr. Nikoo Daftary

One of the most important accessories that we have is our smile. A happy, healthy and radiant smile can make all of the difference in your confidence. But sometimes, issues develop in our mouths that need to be addressed! Our dentist in Chicago utilizes dental crowns when you have a cavity that is too large for a filling, you have a cracked, worn-down or weak tooth, you had a root canal treatment, or you want to cover a tooth that is discolored or oddly shaped. Crowns can help improve your tooth’s durability and aesthetic!

Crown Materials

There are many different materials that make up a dental crown, including ceramics, porcelain or composite resin. Dental crowns are made to blend in with your natural teeth, so others won’t be able to tell that it is there.
When considering what type of crown will be best for you, our dentist in Chicago will consider factors such as the tooth’s location, function, position, and color.

Once the Crown is Placed

Crowns are not immune to damage. Like our natural teeth, dental crowns can be damaged. The tooth underneath the crown is still susceptible to damages as well. Make sure to brush and floss your teeth regularly, as well as schedule regular appointments with our Chicago dentist to ensure no problems are developing. You should avoid chewing hard foods with the tooth that has the crown to minimize damage.
Do you think you are a good candidate for a dental crown? Feel free to contact our team at the Art of Modern Dentistry to see how you can benefit from a dental crown.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
