Teens and adults alike often suffer from excessive wear on their teeth, or chips and cracks caused by injuries or decay. Lost teeth are also more common than many people think. These can be hard blows to a person’s self esteem, and in spite of these being common and quite fixable problems, many people choose to suffer in silence, instead. They may even refuse to smile due to embarrassment over their less-than-perfect smiles. But if missing, chipped or cracked teeth have stolen your smile, it’s time to see what dental crowns can do to help restore it!
What Has Your Smile Upside Down?
Dental crowns can help address a number of issues. For instance:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- A missing tooth or teeth
- Severe tooth discolorations or staining
- A broken tooth
- Teeth that seem misshapen or too small compared to the surrounding teeth
- Teeth left with holes after a deep cavity or root canal treatment
Dental crowns not only improve the smile by covering these flaws, they can also help to improve your oral health, by preventing infection. By covering frail or damaged teeth, we can better protect them from falling out. And in the case of missing teeth, we can protect your gum health and your alignment, by filling the gap created so your other teeth don’t try to shift into the open space.
What Do Crowns Look Like?
Modern dental crowns are carefully crafted to replicate the appearance of your natural teeth. This means they can be made in the same shade, translucency, and contouring of your other teeth. Porcelain is a common choice for crowns, but we can also fit you with a metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or zirconia crown, depending on where the crown is being placed and the needs of your unique bite.
All crowns are selected to be natural-looking and beautiful, but also durable and long-lasting. Once fitted you’ll clean the crowns as you would your other teeth, to help ensure you enjoy your newly-improved smile for many years to come!
