A dental crown is a cap that is used to cover a tooth. Dental crowns can be used for many different reasons, including to protect a weak tooth, to restore a broken tooth, to cover a misshapen or discolored tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place, to cover a dental implant, or to make a cosmetic change. Crowns can benefit many individuals of all ages. Read on to learn more about these benefits.
They’re Custom Made
Crowns are designed to fit your unique smile, right down to the color. Patients can feel comfortable knowing that their crown will be undetectable among their other teeth!
They Are Easy to Place
Placing a crown is a relatively simple procedure. Dr. Zwier simply cleans the tooth and shapes it so that it will fit a crown. Then, an impression of the tooth is made and sent to a lab for the crown to be created. Once the crown is created, it is placed over the tooth using a strong bonding material.
They Can Improve Your Smile
Although crowns are primarily used for restorative reasons, they can also be used for cosmetic reasons as well. Crowns fit perfectly over your tooth, can be used to cover up discoloration, crookedness, chips, cracks, and more. At our practice, we offer porcelain crowns for purely cosmetic reasons.
They are Long-Lasting
At our practice, we use only quality materials to create crowns. Because of this, crowns can last a long time (up to 30 years). Patients who take care of their teeth and crowns can benefit from beautiful results for years to come!
