How Dental Crowns Can Boost Your Smile

Dental crowns help protect your teeth and enhance the appearance of your smile. Dental crowns are used in a variety of procedures, and your dentist can advise on how a crown can restore the natural appearance of your teeth. Planning a special event such as a wedding or an anniversary? Dental crowns are a fast solution for helping you to feel comfortable and look your best.

Key takeaways:

  • Dental crowns protect a tooth after a root canal and offer an alternative treatment when a cavity is too large for a traditional filling.
  • A dental crown is custom-made to match the colour of your teeth and is used in cosmetic dentistry to restore damaged or uneven teeth.
  • A dental implant with a crown fixed on top provides a sturdy replacement for a missing tooth.

“Dental crowns are often made from porcelain or ceramic, and are strong, effective replacements to protect your teeth. They make your tooth stronger and prevent infection, bacteria, or food particles from entering vulnerable spaces in your teeth.
