When teeth have more damage, such as larger fractures or tooth decay, porcelain crowns are a great option to restore them to a beautiful smile. Whereas veneers cover the front of the tooth, a crown covers every surface of the tooth. Porcelain crowns have an advantage over older metal-based ceramic crowns in both strength and esthetics. Layered porcelain crowns can mimic the translucency and dimension of natural tooth structure giving you beautiful results that no one will suspect are crowns.
If you are suffering from a broken or damaged tooth, you probably don’t feel like you have much to smile about. Besides the pain and discomfort from the injured tooth, you avoid smiling because you’re self-conscious about how it will look. Porcelain crowns can restore your smile. They are an attractive solution for tooth repair.
Porcelain crowns cover the whole tooth completely and look totally natural. Whether they are used to cover a broken, chipped, or worn tooth, they are designed to fit the tooth perfectly and blend in for a natural appearance. They are a restorative dentistry solution for broken, discolored, or damaged teeth.
Crowns protect weakened teeth, support cracked teeth (to keep them from further damage), restore broken teeth, and restore the appearance of a beautiful healthy smile. They create a sturdy foundation to support the remaining structure of the teeth from further damage. Because they look so natural, no one will even know you have crowns. There are no tell-tale signs as with some other dental appliances.
Crowns are designed to provide strength and support for damaged teeth, restore functionality, and improve the appearance, color and texture of your teeth. There are several types of crowns your Midtown Manhattan dentist may use for your smile makeover. They will determine the best ones to suit your individual needs. These types include:
Crowns are not only meant to be a cosmetic solution for broken teeth, but they also help protect the tooth from further damage and support the surrounding teeth from becoming damaged as well. They can also be used with a dental bridge in the case of a missing tooth. Dental implants are often used by New York Total Dental to restore missing teeth, but when implant placement demands complicated procedures, a bridge is the solution especially for a single missing tooth. if it is only one tooth it can be enough to help secure the bridge while providing a solution to the problem. The crown and the bridge are bonded to the teeth with a dental adhesive which makes them very durable so you can do what you normally do, eat, smile, and talk.
Crowns are designed to perfectly mimic the look and feel of real teeth. If you have bad teeth as a result of genetics, poor oral hygiene, or suffered an injury to the tooth it is possible to correct it with the use of crowns. It is a good restorative solution to a missing or damaged tooth.
Besides damaged teeth, they can also be used as a cover for unsightly fillings, multiple fillings with different colors, and in cases where a tooth had to have a root canal therapy. It will cover and protect it from damage and keep food particles from getting under the tooth. They make the teeth stronger by protecting the weak ones from being damaged further and provide strength to the other teeth for chewing.
