When you hear us suggest a dental crown for your smile, you may instantly assume you must need a crown because you are experiencing a significant oral health problem. However, the placement of a crown is not always strictly to complete root canal treatment or to cover and support a broken or damaged tooth. In some instances, we suggest a cosmetic crown because you’re dealing with severe esthetic damage. Take a moment to consider three reasons we may suggest a crown for such concerns.
Reason #1: To Make Your Tooth Look Larger
Are you dealing with a tooth or multiple teeth that look too small for your smile? In certain instances, this is something we may address with the use of dental crowns. We will offer you a crown carefully crafted and completely customized with the use of lifelike material like porcelain. We may then place it over your existing teeth to improve the uniformity of your smile.
Reason #2: Veneers Won’t Cover Your Concerns
If you have been told that your tooth or teeth are too esthetically damaged for sufficient coverage with veneers, you have another option. We will suggest the placement of cosmetic dental crowns (this means we will use natural-looking material that leads to esthetically pleasing results), so your tooth looks lovely again.
Reason #3: You Are Missing A Tooth
No, we cannot simply situate a dental crown over the empty space where your tooth once rested. What we can do, however, is place a dental implant to replace the missing tooth’s roots. Then, once you have completely healed, we will replace the part of your tooth that previously sat on top of your gum tissue with a dental crown. The result is a beautiful, stable replacement.
