Crowns Offer Cosmetic Benefits

We all know that having a tooth that is discolored or misshapen can significantly impact the appearance of your smile, as well as your confidence. The good news is that by simply placing a ceramic crown over the tooth we can easily transform it to any shape, size, or color you desire so the tooth blends beautifully with the rest of your smile.

Crowns are Quite Versatile

Dental crowns are used for a variety of different reasons, making them one of the restorations that our Thornton, CO, dental team most often uses. Crowns can be used to improve the appearance of a tooth as well as,

  • Cover and restore a weak or damaged tooth
  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Preserve a cracked or fractured tooth
  • Cover a dental implant to complete the artificial tooth
  • Stabilize dental bridges

Crowns Are Built to Last

Cosmetic crowns are often made from ceramic or porcelain, which is a tough, durable material that is designed to look just like a real tooth. The material is even matched to the color of your tooth beforehand to make sure that it is the same shade as the rest of your smile. Crowns can last anywhere from five to 15 years or longer, depending on how well you care for your new restoration.

Preserve and Protect Your Natural Teeth

Our goal is to always preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. When decay, infection, or injuries occur, we look for the most conservative approach that will also protect and strengthen the tooth. A crown covers the entire tooth, making it a strong protective barrier that will rebuild and improve the overall durability and function of the tooth in the long run.
