Dental crowns are “caps” that restore teeth by completely covering and protecting their top portions (also called crowns). As one of the oldest forms of dental restoration, dental crowns have long been a preferred method of tooth restoration. Today, modern crowns are designed to closely mimic the appearance of healthy, natural teeth, making them as beneficial to your smile’s appearance as they are to restoring your bite’s balance and function. At E-Care Dentistry, we offer a variety of lifelike, esthetically designed crowns, including porcelain, zirconia, and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) restorations.
The Benefits of Modern Dental Crowns
Traditionally, a dental crown’s most common purpose is to protect a tooth that has been damaged or worn down. Issues like cracks, fractures, worn tooth surfaces, and broken tooth structure can grow progressively worse under the pressure of your bite. By capping the tooth, a dental crown can absorb that pressure while holding the compromised tooth structure together. With their highly esthetic materials, modern crowns can also serve several cosmetic benefits by improving the tooth’s appearance and uniformity, as well.
