Dental Crowns: What, Why & How They Restore Your Smile

Dental Crowns - What, Why & How They Restore Your Smile

What Is A Dental Crown?

A dental crown, also known as “cap,” is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.

Dental crowns are a healthy way to fill gaps in teeth and to restore your smile if you have missing or damaged teeth.

A crown can also help you bite and chew better, which can improve not only the physical appearance of your smile but your overall health & wellness too. 

Dental crowns are typically bonded to the tooth using a bio-compatible dental cement.

Why Would Your Dentist Recommend A Crown?

Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the health of your tooth.

Here at Advanced Dental Arts we use composite, porcelain, & porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to restore the smiles of our patients back to health.

Restorative dentistry with dental crowns is an extremely reliable treatment for correcting:

  • chipped or cracked teeth
  • missing teeth
  • discolored teeth
  • weakened or broken teeth

Dental crowns are recommended as a long-lasting corrective treatment for major dental problems.

It’s not unusual for dental crowns to last for 20 to 30 years.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Some of the benefits of dental crowns include:

  1. Replaces missing teeth
  2. Offers support to misshapen teeth or badly broken teeth
  3. Looks completely natural
  4. Fixes “smile” and functional chewing problems
  5. Strengthening teeth
  6. Restoring teeth to their natural shape and size
  7. Covering a dental implant
  8. Protecting a weak tooth from breaking or restoring a broken tooth
  9. Covering discolored teeth
