Dental Crown: Supporting Damaged Teeth
A crown is a natural-looking tooth replacement made of porcelain that is functional and cosmetic. A crown results in restoration of decayed and cracked or weak teeth. Also called caps, crowns are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discoloured, injured, or chipped teeth.
Crowns minimise physical discomfort and provide support to damaged teeth. Ultimately, crowns can improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury.
The dentists at Royal Oak Dental Centre use the finest materials in creating custom crowns for cosmetic and restorative purposes. For teeth that are damaged or sufficiently decayed, we always choose natural-looking, tooth-coloured crowns. Dental crowns can also be used for purely aesthetic reasons – to change the shape or appearance of the teeth. Whatever the situation we have the experience and knowledge to produce superior results. When a tooth is cracked, decayed, or damaged, a dental crown may need to be fitted onto the tooth.
A dental crown is a permanent covering that fits over the original tooth. Dental crowns can be made of porcelain, gold and other metals. Porcelain crowns typically have the most realistic appearance. Dental crowns can whiten, reshape, and realign existing teeth, adding to a bright, healthy smile.
State of the art, high strength metal-free crowns can restore dark teeth and eliminate lines at the gum to provide a natural looking appearance.
