Is A Dental Crown Going To Hurt My Appearance?

It is sometimes necessary to restore a patient’s tooth with a dental crown. Sometimes, the placement of a crown can be planned when someone comes in to discuss cosmetic services. A small, misshapen, or otherwise flawed tooth that may affect your bite function can be effectively taken care of with a lifelike crown. Your Santa Monica, CA dentist’s office can also plan the placement of a crown for an injured tooth, or one affected by decay. Because our practice uses lifelike dental crowns to restore teeth, you can be happy to know that the work you undergo can improve your oral health as well as your appearance.

A Dental Crown Provides Important Protection For A Flawed Tooth

Even a relatively minor problem with your tooth can have an unfavorable effect on your bite function. A small tooth, one that has been damaged, or one that is affected by decay can make basic practices like biting and chewing difficult. Fortunately, a dental crown can provide support for you so that these issues no longer affect you. With that said, the crown also provides important protection for the tooth itself. When placed, it can stop a tooth from developing an infection, or from becoming further damaged.

We Can Provide A Crown That Matches The Color, Shape, And Size Of Your Tooth

In order to provide the right treatment experience for you, our practice takes care to determine a tooth’s shape, size, and color so that a crown provides an ideal match. Once this is done, we can take the gathered information and use it to craft a restoration that fits comfortably when in position. Planning can also ensure that the crown is the right height, color, and general shape to look right for your smile.

Your Crown Can Provide Long-Term Protection For Your Tooth

Unlike porcelain veneers, which are used to make purely cosmetic smile changes, a dental crown is tasked with protecting a tooth from harm. Its presence can stop any further troubles you might have had with your tooth, and it can guard you against further troubles after a cavity. While the porcelain crowns we place are attractive, they are also selected because they provide important long-term functional support.
