What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is made of ceramic or other dental material that covers your entire tooth. Crowns are durable alternatives to fillings and other treatment options for addressing an array of dental problems, such as teeth that are:
- Oddly shaped
- Severely stained
- Severely worn
- Chipped, cracked or broken
- Suffering from failing fillings
Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
One of the greatest benefits of porcelain crowns is the stunning beauty of your results. Unlike other types of crowns, porcelain crowns can be customized to match the natural color of your existing teeth. Some of the benefits of porcelain crowns include:
- Attractive appearance: Porcelain crowns can improve the appearance of your whole smile. With a beautiful, natural-looking crown, you can conceal unsightly dental flaws and smile with greater confidence.
- Support: Porcelain crowns fortify and support teeth that are weak or damaged by trauma or decay. If you have a tooth that is chipped or cracked, a porcelain crown can hold it together.
- Customization: A porcelain crown can be precisely tailored to improve upon the shape and color of your existing tooth.
Postponing treatment for a damaged tooth will only permit the issue to worsen. Eventually, your broken tooth won’t be able to function properly and more expensive and invasive procedures may be needed. Placing a full crown on your tooth will restore beauty, function and strength to your smile.
Should I Get a Dental Crown?
The best way to determine if a crown is right for your dental needs is to meet personally with our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Keith Ogawa. During your initial consultation, he will examine your damaged tooth or teeth and decide which treatment option is best for you. He will explain your options, answer your questions and address your concerns.
When choosing a cosmetic dentist, it’s important to choose someone with the experience, skill and passion for excellence to ensure your results are safe, attractive and long-lasting. Dr. Ogawa is an experienced, LVI-trained dentist with a history of proven success.
