Cosmetic Solutions with Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a custom-made artificial tooth cap that completely covers a chipped, cracked or damaged tooth. The tooth-shaped “cap” is placed over the damaged tooth to restore its strength, shape and size. It improve its appearance by fully encasing the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gum line. Crowns can be made from a number of different materials to match the shade and color of your tooth.
Dental crowns can be used in connection with a variety of procedures in cosmetic dentistry:
- Dental Implants: Dental crowns are used to cap the metal rod implant in place of a missing tooth.
- Dental Bridges: Dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the bridge serve as anchors for the bridge to clamp onto for support.
- Root Canal Therapy: Dental crowns protect brittle teeth after root canal therapy.
