Dental Crowns In Bradford, ON

What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown may also be referred to as a dental cap or a cap. Crowns are a common and vital treatment option when it comes to both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. A crown is a hollow and tooth-shaped restoration that is custom-made to be placed directly on top of a tooth that has been modified to fit the crown properly.
When Is A Dental Crown Needed?
A crown helps to improve the appearance of a tooth, as well as adding strength and structural stability to a weak tooth.
Strengthen A Tooth
A tooth that is weak or prone to fracture can be strengthened by placing a dental crown over the tooth. By placing the crown over the tooth, the crown can absorb and distribute biting and chewing forces more evenly. Teeth that have many large dental fillings are prone to damage. Fitting a dental crown over these teeth adds strength.
Improve The Appearance Of A Tooth
In addition to strengthening a tooth, a crown will also improve the look of a tooth. Dental crowns are custom-made to achieve a desired look in terms of shape, colour, and size. For example, teeth that cannot be whitened regularly due to internal or intrinsic staining can have a dental crown made with a lighter shade placed over them. Teeth that seem narrow in comparison with other teeth can have their appearance normalized by placing a crown over them.
Close Spaces Between Teeth
While orthodontic treatment through the use of braces or Invisalign treatment can reduce spaces between teeth nicely, they are not always the best option when only one or two spaces need to be fixed. Some patients with a space between their two upper front teeth, may not want to undergo orthodontic treatment that can last months to years. In these cases, the use of dental crowns, or dental veneers can help by fitting a wider crown on top of two teeth that close the space.
