A Crown For Every Occasion
Dental crowns are a versatile treatment that help restore damaged teeth or improve the appearance of a tooth. The crown procedure can be used as a stand alone treatment or as part of another treatment, as in the case of dentures, implants and root canals. Modern dental technology has greatly improved the outcomes of dental implants. Not only are they durable and long-lasting, but they look just like a natural tooth. The crown is a tooth-shaped structure, comparable to a cap, that is placed over a tooth. The “cap” covers the tooth to improve its appearance and restore its shape and size.
Dental crowns may be needed for various reasons — to strengthen a tooth with a large filling or after a root canal treatment, as part of a dental bridge or implant treatment, or to improve the look of a tooth.
Aesthetics Meet Functionality
Teeth perform a variety of functions that we can take for granted when they’re healthy. Everything from chewing tough foods, speaking clearly and maintaining our facial structure. With a complete set of healthy, strong teeth, you are confident smiling or speaking in public.
If there is a need for a dental crown, however, you can be confident that this common treatment will provide the following benefits:
- Enhanced appearance — A dental crown mimics the look of a natural tooth. It is designed to fit perfectly and blend in with your smile; no one will notice it is a prosthetic.
- Improved chewing — When you lose a tooth, you lose chewing support. A dental crown gives you back the ability to eat foods that you couldn’t with a missing or damaged tooth. Thanks to the variety of materials and their durability, you can keep enjoying all the foods you love.
- Greater protection — If the tooth is decayed or broken, the dental crown covers it, protecting it from further damage and bacteria.
- Additional restoration support — A dental crown can be used with dental implants as the restoration tooth, as a cover for teeth with large fillings, to hold dental bridges, and even to protect a root canal.
