What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are caps or covers that fit directly over the tooth structure in order to act as a protective shell. Once in place, dental crowns look just like your natural teeth, for the porcelain or ceramic construction perfectly mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Each dental crown is custom-made to ensure a perfect fit and a completely natural appearance.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
There are several restorative, protective, and cosmetic benefits that comes from receiving dental crowns. Since a dental crown completely encapsulates the tooth that it is placed over, the crown can protect damaged teeth from further deterioration. A dental crown can also strengthen a weakened tooth that has lost the ability to perform normal chewing and biting functionality.
Another benefit of dental crowns is that they enhance your smile by concealing various cosmetic issues. Teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, discolored, crooked, or oddly shaped can be completely transformed when dental crowns are placed over teeth. Once in place, imperfect teeth will appear flawless. Visit our office in Toms River, NJ, to learn how dental implants can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile.
