Dental crowns are nothing new in the realm of dentistry. In fact, the first known example of using a dental crown dates back 4,000 years in Southeast Asia! While today’s dental crowns are far superior than those gold caps used in ancient history, they still remain a very popular treatment in modern dentistry. Such preferred and widespread use is largely attributed to the fact that dental crowns are highly versatile in terms of improving the appearance, function and health of your smile.
When the shape, size or strength of a tooth needs to be improved, a custom dental crown can help. A crown can be considered a tooth cap, as it encases all visible surfaces of the tooth. It looks and feels natural and is also stain-resistant. Your dentist will carefully fabricate your specific crown to match the color, size and shape of your existing teeth. Porcelain crowns can be used cosmetically or to restore a tooth from extensive decay or damage. We may suggest a dental crown for the following:
- Correct discolored, misshapen or gapped teeth
- Restore a tooth that is broken, decayed, cracked or worn
- Protect a tooth after root canal therapy or a large filling
- Cover a dental implant
- Hold a dental bridge in place
Regardless of why you need a porcelain crown, you can trust SmileBuilders, Inc. to make your experience as comfortable and convenient as possible. You may even choose sedation dentistry to help you relax during your procedure. We also provide a variety of payment options and financing plans to make your custom dental crown more affordable.
