Should A Dental Crown Be Used To Address A Smile Problem?

After suffering an injury, or an advanced cavity, your tooth might need a dental crown. What you might not realize is that crowns can sometimes be used to help improve a person’s smile, even if they have not suffered a problem with their oral health. If you have a tooth that is smaller, weaker, or otherwise naturally flawed, it can interfere with your dental function, and negatively impact your smile. Using a crown to cover this tooth can be beneficial to your smile, as there are materials your dentist can use to create a life-like restoration. If you are unsure whether to use a dental crown to address a problem tooth, or undergo a conventional cosmetic dental treatment, you can discuss your options with your dentist. 

Making Cosmetic And Functional Improvements To A Flawed Tooth

Because a single flawed tooth can hurt the overall quality of your smile, patients can be eager to address the problem. If you have a tooth that needs more than just a cosmetic improvement, a dental crown can be ideal. You can have a custom crown made to imitate a natural tooth, and fit in with your surrounding teeth. You can also count on your restoration to allow you to practice normal biting and chewing habits.
