Crowns are often associated with royalty and fame. This refers to the gold or decorated adornment placed on your head. However, there is another type of crown that only your dentist can award. While dental crowns are used as a way to repair a damaged tooth, they can still represent the beauty and confidence that “real crowns” do.
A dental crown, often called a custom or cosmetic crown, is a special cap that is placed on a damaged or decayed tooth. It covers all visible surfaces of the tooth and helps the tooth regain a natural appearance, comfortable function and ideal health. Without a crown, the tooth’s integrity may be too compromised to perform its duties without pain or even stay in place. A crown can save the day for a damaged and dying tooth!
Modern crowns can be fabricated using strong porcelain, which allows it to retain a life-like appearance as well as stay strong for everyday dental function.
Here are a few reasons why you shouldn’t hesitate in receiving a crown from your dentist:
Dental crowns can address a wide range of issues that would otherwise cause pain, cosmetic issues or health threats throughout your mouth. Crowns can treat:
- Chipped Teeth
- Damaged Teeth
- Missing Teeth
- Teeth Gaps
- Misaligned Teeth
- Dental Occlusion
Dental crowns look natural. Porcelain is a translucent white material that is considered the closest material to replicate your tooth’s natural enamel. Plus, it can be customized in shape, size and form to ensure it blends seamlessly within your surrounding teeth.
Dental crowns feel natural. Your crown will be sculpted to match your other teeth but also measured to fit precisely within your natural bite. Chewing, biting and speaking should feel completely normal after you get a crown.
Dental crowns are painless and convenient. This is a quick and straightforward treatment that can solve serious issues within a tooth. Using advanced technology, your custom crown can be delivered in 1-2 visits!
