How a Dental Crown Helps Your Smile
Dental crowns are used to repair teeth that have had large cavities and fillings and that need protection from fracture or that are severely worn down. They are also used to improve the colour, shape and function of teeth. They differ from veneers in that they cover most of the entire outer surface of the tooth while veneers cover just the front.
Crowns can be made from various materials including various porcelains, a combination of porcelain and metal or only gold. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages. Crowns are an investment in the health and longevity of your teeth and provide better function as well as improved appearance.
Dental crowns can also be used to repair and enhance the appearance of front teeth. These crowns are usually made from porcelain due to its natural toothlike appearance. Teeth that are worn, have large fillings, are discoloured, are chipped or broken are candidates for dental crowns. Crowns provide are a lifelike and long lasting treatment for many situations.
