Dental Crowns in Burbank, IL

Oak Lawn Smiles – Restoring Smiles in Burbank and the Surrounding Illinois Communities

Dental crowns are a restorative dental treatment designed to repair damaged or weakened teeth that have undergone a procedure or been affected by tooth decay or injury. Dental crowns can also be used to restore beauty and functionality to smiles in a relatively unintrusive way.

Crowns last for many years and they are a great method for restoring the look of your natural teeth. Reach out today to schedule your initial consultation!

How Dental Crowns Restore Smiles

An injured tooth, whether it is chipped, cracked, or decayed, can be incredibly painful. A dental crown restores a tooth to its full functionality, and it can help repair chips, wear, decay, and other types of damage.

Crowns prevent teeth from further injury, and are also used in implant dentistry procedures. They come in a wide variety of materials, and you can choose porcelain crowns, composite crowns, or metal crowns, depending on your needs. Plus, most crowns are custom-made to match the natural color of your teeth.

Patients Who Benefit Most from Dental Crowns

In order to be a good candidate for a dental crown procedure, the patient in question will need to have good oral health and enough tooth structure to support a crown. Occasionally, minor chips will do better being repaired through dental bonding or a veneer, and other times teeth are too damaged to repair and require extraction.

When you come in for your first appointment, our team at Oak Lawn Smiles will carefully examine your teeth to determine if you’re a good candidate for this procedure.

How to Care for A Dental Crown

Dental crowns are quite durable and with proper care can last 15 years or longer. In some situations, they do require early replacement, but if you want to make sure your crowns last as long as possible, follow these steps for dental crown care:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene – Brush and floss your teeth every day using a toothpaste that is recommended by your dentist, and visit the dentist regularly for check-ups.
  • Protect your teeth – Avoid bad habits like jaw clenching, bruxism (tooth grinding), and chewing on pens or your nails, etc. These can all cause damage to yourdental crown.
  • Consider metal crowns – While all crowns are made of durable materials, tooth-colored materials are slightly less durable than metal. If aesthetics and appearance matter less to you than durability, or the tooth in question is not visible when you smile, you might prefer a metal crown, such as gold alloy or amalgam.

What to Do if A Dental Crown is Loose or Falls Out

It is possible an injury, change in bite pattern, or other factor could cause your dental crown to fall out. If this happens, the team at Oak Lawn Smiles can re-adhere it or replace your dental crown altogether.

We highly recommend you schedule an appointment as soon as possible to protect your teeth from damage oand decay. In the meantime, avoid foods that are difficult to chew and use dental wax to protect the area.

I've always hated the dentist, but this place is awesome! First off, the staff is so great and welcoming. They made me feel 100% comfortable even though I was in a lot of pain and was honestly really nervous since it's been a while that I've seen the dentist. Dr. Theresa is by far the most personable and non judgmental dentist I've ever seen. She kept me informed the entire time during the visit and kept me calm. Love this place, maybe going to the dentist from now on won't be so stressful after all.

I had my best experience I've ever had at a dentist here at Oak Lawn Smiles. The whole office is modern and the staff is very friendly! My dentist was very conservative with her approach on what to do with my situation. 10/10 would recommend to other people to check this place out.
