If you have a tooth that you are less than satisfied due to breakage, tooth decay, or a lack of proper appearance, shape, or size, then seeking out your tooth restoration options should be at the top of your priority list. In today's article, with the help of Garden Lakes Family Dentistry in Phoenix, we are going to take a look at what dental crowns are and how they can change the way you look at yourself and how they can change how the world looks at you.
Dental crowns are also known as “caps” that are placed over teeth. This cap is able to be customized and shade matched in order to restore a damaged tooth. This cap or crown is cemented over the remaining part of the tooth to cover it completely.
A dental patient may need or want a dental crown for a plethora of different reasons. Dental crowns protect teeth from weakening and even from decay. Dental crowns have even been used in order to hold cracked portions of a tooth together in order to keep them from breaking more. Dental crowns can also be used to restore broken teeth or cover to that has been worn down due to bruxism or an injury. They can also hold a bridge in place and cover a dental implant to be used in an array of different cosmetic modifications.
