Restore damaged teeth with dental crowns by giving those teeth a strong, new exterior. Dental crowns are placed over damaged teeth and function as a protective cap for teeth that are too worn down or weak to bite and chew properly. Dental crowns protect against further damage, while restoring normal tooth functioning. Here at Elegant Smile Dental in West Los Angeles, our dentist, Dr. Sally Yousefi, can restore your damaged teeth with dental crowns—read on to learn if this treatment is right for you!
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are hollow shells placed over weak or damaged teeth to protect them from being further worn down or damaged. By giving compromised teeth a strong, new exterior, dental crowns also restore the ability to bite and chew food again without pain or sensitivity. Dental crowns can also be placed over cosmetically-flawed teeth to improve the appearance of those teeth and give them a flawless new look. Dental crowns can conceal stains, discolorations, chips, and cracks, as well as improve the form of oddly shaped teeth.
Dental crowns are custom made to look just like natural teeth. The size, shape, and color can also be customized for the best fit and most natural look. Once put in place, a dental crown completely encapsulates the tooth structure, making it so that others will not be able to tell that the natural tooth is concealed beneath a crown. At our West Los Angeles office, your dentist can determine if dental crowns are right for you during a consultation.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns offer multiple benefits. They protect and restore damaged teeth, as well as improve the appearance of teeth with cosmetic imperfections. Another benefit of dental crowns is that they can help securely hold a dental bridge in place, as well as replace missing teeth when placed over a dental implant. Other advantages include:
- Concealing cosmetic imperfections
- Restoring biting and chewing functions
- Protecting weak or damaged teeth
- Preventing loose fillings from falling out
- Holding a dental bridge securely in place
- Replacing missing teeth
