5 Surprising Ways We Use Crowns to Improve Your Smile

March 29, 2018
Posted By: Pruce Dental

Most dental patients know that porcelain crowns are used to protect and strengthen a tooth. They are designed to completely cover a damaged tooth to restore the structure needed for chewing comfortably. Crowns are often indicated to repair a fractured or damaged tooth, for use with a dental bridge, to restore a dental implant, or to strengthen a tooth after root canal treatment.

Improve Your Smile with Crowns

But patients looking for dental crowns at our Washington, PA dental office are often surprised to find that they can also be used to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Since they fit over your tooth like a cap, porcelain crowns offer many opportunities for hiding cosmetic smile flaws. 

Esthetic crowns are made of porcelain or zirconia and are highly durable restorations that can last as long as 15 years. Better yet, they mimic the appearance of natural dental enamel and are designed to blend seamlessly with your smile. 

This makes a porcelain crown an excellent solution for concealing cosmetic imperfections like:

  • Oddly shaped teeth 
  • Chipped or fractured teeth
  • Teeth that are severely stained
  • Teeth worn down by grinding
  • Uneven spacing between teeth

Since a crown is customized just for you, it's designed to address these problems and create a "new" tooth to improve the symmetry of your smile. The result is a smile that looks naturally beautiful, and no one ever has to know you have had any work done!
