Dental crowns can enhance and help your smile in many ways. They strengthen damaged teeth, improve the appearance of flawed ones, and can even replace missing teeth. Custom dental crowns are available at Hilton Head Dental Team, your family dentistry practice in Hilton Head Island, SC, where Dr. Julie Camp-Tome, Dr. Benjamin Wietecha, and Dr. Glenn Barker can help you improve your smile.
Enhancing Your Smile with Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are hollow caps that look like teeth but are placed directly over the natural teeth. Once in place, the natural tooth is totally encapsulated inside the crown. Several different types of materials can be used to create custom dental crowns, with porcelain being the most popular. Crowns made from porcelain are a popular choice because they look just like natural teeth and blend in with the rest of your smile.
Dental crowns strengthen teeth that are weak, worn down, or damaged, giving them a strong new exterior. By strengthening these teeth, biting and chewing functions are also restored. Additionally, crowns provide protection against future damage or wear and tear.
Another way dental crowns can help your smile is by improving the appearance of teeth with cosmetic flaws such as chips, cracks, or stains. Since the natural tooth is completely encased inside the crown, all imperfections are also concealed. The dental crown gives the tooth a flawless new look. Dental crowns can improve the appearance of teeth that are shaped oddly, chipped, cracked, discolored, or stained.
Finally, dental crowns also help replace missing teeth when used in conjunction with dental implants. A crown can be attached to a dental implant to fill in the gap where a tooth is missing. The skilled and friendly dentists at our family dentistry office in Hilton Head Island, SC, can help strengthen, enhance, and restore your smile with dental implants.
