Dental Crowns An Overview
Dental crowns are a versatile dental restoration. Used to repair damaged teeth, protect teeth treated with a root canal, or disguise cosmetic blemishes – dental crowns are a high-quality solution to a range of dental concerns. Dental crowns are customizable and designed to create a beautiful result.
DENTAL CROWNS CAN:
- Repair damaged, chipped or cracked teeth
- Mask discolored teeth
- Correct misshapen teeth
- Protect teeth treated with root canals
- Serve as anchor teeth for a dental bridge
- Replace missing teeth in combination with a dental implant
Dental crowns are highly durable and designed to fit over the entire tooth. Made from high quality ceramic materials, dental crowns look and feel like natural teeth. They are colored and shaped to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth.
Once bonded in place, a dental crown can be cared for just as you care for your natural teeth. Dental crowns are considered a permanent dental restoration. Brushing, flossing and routine visits to the dentist will help keep your dental crown restoration in top shape for years to come.
Implant-Supported Crown for Single Tooth Replacement
Even one missing tooth compromises the health and structure of your entire smile. A single missing tooth should be replaced promptly to avoid development of secondary dental concerns. One missing tooth could cause teeth to shift, bone to deteriorate, and gum disease to develop.
Because a dental crown combined with a dental implant closely mirrors a natural tooth in both appearance and function, it typically provides the best replacement available for one missing tooth. The dental implant is surgically implanted into the jaw and left to heal. It then fuses with the jaw bone creating a stable foundation and anchor for the dental crown.
