There are circumstances where a dental crown is required in order to save an injured or unhealthy tooth. This restoration can be counted on to provide functional support, and keep you safe against an infection of your vulnerable tooth. Because crowns are so often used in restorative dentistry, you may be surprised to hear that they can also provide valuable cosmetic benefits! If you schedule a free cosmetic consultation at our Rochester, MN dental office, we can determine if a damaged or unsightly tooth could benefit from more than a cosmetic restoration. In some cases, placing a dental crown can help someone feel more confident in their appearance, while also providing long-lasting functional advantages!
What Can I Gain By Having A Crown Placed On An Unattractive Tooth?
Problems with the shape or size of teeth are often addressed through the placement of porcelain veneers, or dental bonding work. In some cases, the placement of a crown may be recommended over these other cosmetic treatment options. By placing a crown, your dentist can give your tooth better support for biting and chewing. This may be due to esthetic issues caused by an injury, or because a tooth is naturally undersized, and has offered too little support for your bite function.
Creating A Crown That Looks Like A Natural, Healthy Tooth
Modern dental crowns can be created to match the look of a natural tooth, and serve as an ideal fit in your smile! Ceramic material makes it possible to imitate the appearance of your healthy tooth enamel. After examining your neighboring teeth for comparison, your dentist can even make sure the restoration has the appropriate tint to blend in with its neighbors! Because they can be so remarkably lifelike, crowns can have positive benefits for a person’s appearance, to the point that they can actually offer cosmetic benefits through placement.
CEREC Technology Can Produce A Crown In Just One Appointment!
While other practices have to go to third party labs to have dental crowns produced, we can craft your restoration in just one day! We use CEREC technology to digitally examine your tooth, and design a crown based on the measurements taken. Once this is done, we have a milling machine at our practice that can produce your custom crown. Because of this, the process of restoring an unhealthy tooth and improving your smile can be less time-consuming, and more convenient!
