Benefits of Dental Crowns
Restored Oral Function
When a missing or damaged tooth is replaced or repaired with a dental crown, chewing and speaking become easier and much more comfortable.
Many of Dr. Krendl's patients come to our Littleton, CO, dental practice to restore smiles compromised by breaks, decay, deep stains, and more. Restoring a flawed tooth with a dental crown can give you a renewed, confident smile.
Strength and Protection
A crown placed on a damaged tooth can strengthen and protect healthy dental tissue, especially if Dr. Krendl performed a root canal procedure to remove infected pulp from the tooth's interior. A dental crown can seal the tooth and prevent future infections in the root canal.
Replacement of Missing Teeth
Dr. Krendl may recommend a crown supported by a dental implant to replace a missing tooth. Our dentist is trained to perform all implant procedure steps, including surgery and crown attachment. Crowns supported by implants offer unparalleled stability.
Dr. Krendl can customize your dental crown by size, shape, and shade so it blends seamlessly with your existing teeth.
Regular brushing and flossing can help the dental crowns our dentist provides to his Littleton, CO, patients last up to 15 years. Other procedures like fillings or whitening treatments may cost less but do not last as nearly as long.

I have been coming to Colorado Dental Arts for the past 10 years, and could not be happier. I have a real phobia regarding dentistry, and they have treated me with great respect and without judgment. I cannot say enough about how great the staff is, and Dr. Krendl is just awesome.View on Google

How to Care for Your New Dental Crown
Be Mindful of What You Eat
What you eat has a significant impact on the longevity of your dental crown. You will want to avoid chewy or sticky foods including caramel, chewing gum, and taffy, even after receiving your permanent crown. Hard foods such as pretzels, seeds, nuts, granola, hard candy, and ice can dislodge a crown and are best avoided. Tough-to-chew foods such as hard bread or steak can also cause issues with a temporary crown, but can still be eaten with the proper care following the placement of your permanent crown.
Maintain Proper Oral Hygiene
To maintain a dental crown, you can follow the same hygiene routine as you would for your natural teeth. To avoid scratching your restoration, we advise using non-abrasive toothpaste. Flossing front to back rather than up and down can help avoid dislodging your crown.
Visit the Dentist Regularly
Visiting the dentist at least twice a year allows Dr. Krendl to regularly monitor the condition of your crown. Should he spot any issue with your restoration, he can address it before it becomes a more serious problem.
Minimize Unnecessary Wear
Wearing a nightguard while you sleep can minimize excessive wear on your teeth and crown. Habits such as opening packages with your teeth, chewing on pens and pencils, and fingernail biting can also prematurely wear your restoration and should be avoided.
