Dental crowns can give you that shiny smile you deserve. Crowns are fixed prosthetics cemented onto the natural teeth. They are used to cover fractured or chipped surfaces.
There are various options for crowns, but porcelain crowns or porcelain caps are possibly the most natural-looking and last the longest.
Some may mistake crowns for veneers. To the untrained eye, there might not be any visible difference. A crown is mainly there to strengthen fractured teeth. Veneers, on the other hand, are purely for aesthetic purposes. Veneers are also thinner and don’t help to strengthen the tooth.
Crowns are custom-made by moulding an impression of your teeth. Your dentist will typically give you a temporary crown which will stay on for about two weeks. That gives them time to customize your crown so that it fits on your tooth seamlessly.
If you’re experiencing pain in a tooth, you might need a filling or a crown. Do not hesitate to make an appointment with your Newmarket dentist today.
