A Long-Term Solution to Repairing Damaged Teeth with Porcelain Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be used for both restorative and cosmetic reasons. Porcelain crowns offer strength and stability to damaged teeth to restore their usefulness. At the same time, a crown can conceal the damage to improve your tooth’s appearance. You can learn more about this versatile dental treatment from Milford Dental and Associates in Highland, Michigan.

What Can a Dental Crown Do?

Porcelain dental crowns are special tooth coverings placed over damaged teeth to fortify and protect them from further damage. These custom-designed white caps for teeth completely cover compromised teeth to seal them from decay and keep them from crumbling.

A properly placed crown can preserve your oral health by:

  • Restoring decayed teeth – Dental crowns can restore severely decayed teeth that can’t be repaired with dental fillings. After removing the decay, our doctors will trim and crown your tooth to prevent future infection.
  • Repairing damaged teeth – Crowns can repair chipped, cracked or broken teeth to keep them from crumbling. In the process, crowns restore their function and appearance.
  • Protecting root canal teeth – Dental crowns help protect weak teeth that have undergone root canal treatment.
  • Serving as replacement teeth – Porcelain crowns can serve as replacement teeth for dental implants after losing natural teeth.

Can Dental Crowns Enhance Tooth Appearance?

Porcelain crowns can also be used for cosmetic reasons to conceal dental imperfections and enhance your tooth’s appearance. By concealing stains and discoloration, a dental crown can brighten your smile. Crowns can also alter the size, shape or spacing of your teeth to correct problems with gapped, uneven or misshapen teeth and give you a winsome smile that’s more uniform and pleasing.
