6 Ways Dental Crowns Restore Smiles

cost of dental crowns Jacksonville

Dental crowns have been around a long time, and continue to play an important role in cosmetic dentistry at Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville.

A dental crown, often called a cap, covers the visible part of the tooth. They are used for many common dental issues:

  • An old crown that is damaged or ill-fitting
  • A broken tooth
  • A tooth with extreme decay
  • A tooth that has had a root canal
  • A tooth that is too small or misshapen
  • A tooth that prevents a proper bite

A dental crown serves both structural and aesthetic purposes. It protects a natural tooth from additional decay and damage while permitting normal function. A crown can save a tooth from extraction and the subsequent bone loss that often occurs.

Crowns need daily cleaning and flossing, just like natural teeth. The remaining tooth structure around the gumline could still become decayed, and gum disease is still possible.

At Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, dental crowns are one of our cosmetic dentistry services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Beautiful Teeth Without Breaking The Bank

affordable teeth whitening Jacksonville

At Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, our cosmetic dentistry patients believe that life-changing cosmetic dentistry is a valuable investment. Indeed, for most people, the value of a healthy, attractive smile cannot be measured in dollars. We recognize, however, that cosmetic dentistry is not cheap.

Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to improve your smile? Actually, no. Today’s post focuses on the most affordable cosmetic dental procedures.

Dental Bonding
In many cases, dental bonding can be used to repair a tooth that has been chipped.

When we repair a tooth with dental bonding, a pliable resin material is applied to the tooth. We expertly mold the material to create the desired shape. The resin is then hardened using a special light. After hardening, we perform any necessary trimming and shaping followed by a final polishing.

Dental bonding is commonly less expensive than porcelain veneers or dental crowns.

Tooth Whitening
Most Jacksonville people are aware that there are several different tooth whitening protocols. Freedom Village Dental dentist recommends scheduling a tooth whitening consultation to discuss your options. Even inexpensive OTC tooth bleaching systems can be misused and result in tooth sensitivity, damage to tooth enamel, and irregular coloration.

Regarding the cost of teeth whitening: if you pick an at-home system from a drugstore, you may have to buy several packages to obtain even slight whitening. In-office whitening or a take home system from our office may be more reasonably priced in the long run.

Cosmetic dentistry from Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville doesn’t have to break the bank. We also provide pediatric dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
