Dental Crowns: Restoring Function and Beauty to Your Smile
At iSmile Dentistry, we offer dental crowns as a versatile restoration option to address various dental concerns. A dental crown, also known as a cap, is custom-made to fit over a damaged or decayed tooth, preserving as much of the original tooth structure as possible while preventing further deterioration. Whether you’re dealing with a significantly damaged tooth or aiming to enhance the appearance of your smile, our dental crowns can provide the solution you need.
Restoring Damaged Teeth with Custom-Made Crowns
One of the primary uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that has been severely damaged or decayed. Our experienced dentists will carefully assess your situation and recommend a crown if a dental filling is insufficient for an effective restoration. A crown encapsulates the entire tooth, starting from the gum line, restoring it to its original shape and size. This comprehensive coverage ensures optimal protection and functionality.
Aesthetic and Functional Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns offer a range of restorative and aesthetic benefits, including:
1. Preserving and Beautifying Your Smile
Our porcelain dental crowns are meticulously crafted to match the natural color and appearance of your existing teeth. By seamlessly blending with your smile, the crown enhances its overall beauty and symmetry. Whether you have a misshapen tooth or desire an improved aesthetic, a dental crown can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
2. Providing Support for Dental Restorations
Dental crowns play a crucial role in supporting other dental restorations, such as dental bridges and implants. If you require a dental bridge to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth, crowns placed on healthy teeth can anchor and support the bridge, ensuring a stable and functional replacement.
3. Strengthening and Protecting Weak Teeth
When a tooth is weakened due to fractures or extensive decay, a dental filling may not be sufficient. In such cases, a dental crown provides the necessary strength and protection to prevent further damage. By covering the entire tooth, the crown restores its structural integrity and functionality, allowing you to chew and speak with confidence.
