Dental crowns are a convenient way for patients to improve and protect their natural teeth. These restorations are made to blend with a patient’s smile, cover imperfections, and provide strength and beauty to weakened or structurally affected teeth. Crowns may also be used to restore a dental implant, which is surgically implanted to replace a missing tooth. They are made of porcelain, match the color and shape of the patient’s existing teeth, and are bonded over the top with strong dental adhesives.
- A patient may benefit from a dental crown in several situations.
- Replacing missing teeth with dental implants.
- Restoring a tooth that has had a large filling placed.
- Covering a tooth that has a chip or crack.
- Protecting a tooth after root canal therapy.
- Disguising imperfections on a tooth, including permanent staining and discoloration.
