Dental crowns are a proven way to restore a tooth that has been weakened due to issues such as decay or a root canal. But what about cosmetically? Can a crown be utilized for purely cosmetic purposes? Dr. Nima Afzalian and the team at My Dental and Implants in Glendale, Arizona, would love to tell you about affordable dental crowns “near me” and how they can be used to revitalize your smile!
If you are not happy with how a tooth, or multiple teeth, look, you may have been thinking about getting a dental crown as a cosmetic treatment. While we all know crowns are incredible for restoring structural issues with a tooth, they can also be used as a cosmetic cover.
Because a dental crown completely encapsulates the tooth, they have started to be widely used as a cosmetic dental solution. If you have a tooth that is discolored and which is not responding to whitening treatments, getting a crown put over the tooth which matches the shade of your surrounding teeth can rectify this issue.
Another great dental crown application is for teeth with minor chips or cracks. While dental bonding is a more popular solution for treating minor cracks or chips, a dental crown can also be used. Once a chip or crack has been examined and determined that it is not a major concern, a crown can be put over the tooth to conceal the chip or crack.
The final application we will discuss here is getting a dental crown for a misshapen tooth. If you have a single tooth that has always been oddly shaped, a dental crown can help. Again, because a crown completely encapsulates the tooth, it will conceal the misshapen tooth and be crafted to blend in with your remaining natural teeth.
