The Valued Versatility of a Dental Crown


Woman Smiling After Getting a Dental Crown O'Fallon ILDental crowns have been used for decades – and they are still one of the most popular dental restorations used across the world. They’ve gained their favor and widespread use due to their versatility. Crowns can be used to improve the structure and function of a tooth as well as its appearance. This is why crowns are often considered as a cosmetic investment as well as a restorative one. They can even serve as replacements for missing teeth!

Today’s dental crowns are more durable and natural-looking than ever before. While a wide range of materials can be used to fabricate a crown, most dentists prefer porcelain crowns. These provide durability and stain-resistance and they mimic the translucence of a natural tooth. Most of all, modern dental crowns can be tailored to fit your smile. Detailed measurements of your mouth and gums are acquired so that your crown can be customized in color, shape and size to blend seamlessly within your smile.

The Many Ways A Dental Crown Can Fix or Improve Your Smile

There are a variety of reasons why your dentist may recommend a dental crown. They have the remarkable ability to resolve a large number of dental concerns, including the following:

  • Fractured teeth
  • Severe cavities
  • Worn teeth
  • Old tooth fillings
  • Stained teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Missing teeth (attached to dental implant)
  • After a root canal (to strengthen affected tooth)
