Dental crowns are used in both restorative and Madera Cosmetic Dentistry. When they are used in the former their purpose is to restore the full functioning of the teeth. In the latter case, as well as restoring function, their purpose is also to improve the appearance of the smile. Dr. Ahmed Elsayed is a dentist at Madera Family Dental Care in Madera CA. He practices both restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
What is a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are comprised of a prosthetic tooth usually made from porcelain but may also be made from ceramics or resin. Crowns are used to completely cover the portion of a tooth that is above the gum line. Each crown is customized to match the original size, shape, and color of the tooth it is covering. Before the crown is fitted, the tooth is shaved down so that the crown will fit comfortably. It is then cemented in place.
How Can Madera Cosmetic Dentistry Dental Crowns Improve my Smile?
When used in cosmetic dentistry, a crown can cover several tooth imperfections including:
- Discolored teeth: If you have one or more teeth with intrinsic stains (stains on the inside of the tooth) even professional whitening will not be able to remove theses stains. However, dental crowns are a great way to hide them.
- Chipped teeth: If you have a small chip missing from a tooth, a crown can cover it and make your tooth look perfect and prevent further damage.
If you have a badly stained tooth or one that is chipped or crooked, it can make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed about smiling. Because they brighten your smile, dental crowns also restore your confidence and they look perfectly natural, so no one will know that they’re not your natural teeth. What’s more, crowns that are made from porcelain are very durable and are also resistant to stains.
