Lifelike Dental Crowns
To restore a fractured or broken tooth, or one that has become structurally weak and unable to perform, the best solution is often to completely cap the tooth with a custom, lifelike dental crown. Commonly made from highly realistic dental ceramic, a crown simultaneously restores a tooth’s strength and integrity while improving its outward appearance and uniformity with the rest of your smile. When placed on top of a dental implant, a crown can also replace a tooth that has been lost or needs to be extracted.
Your dental crown will be custom-designed according to your tooth’s unique and highly detailed specifications so that it fits comfortably and discreetly between your healthy, natural teeth.
Complete Tooth Restoration with a Dental Crown
Depending on the nature and extent of your tooth trauma, your dentist might suggest a smaller restoration, such as a filling or porcelain veneer. However, dental crowns are often the preferable solution for a number of reasons. For instance, they can completely restore a tooth even when it’s significantly broken down or has been treated for severe tooth infection. To place a crown, your dentist will prepare the tooth by sculpting it to accommodate the restoration. Then, your dentist will measure the tooth using advanced digital imaging technology, using the measurements to custom-craft your lifelike dental crown.
