Dental crowns offer the ideal solution to a number of dental issues, both aesthetic and physical. In fact, these multi-purpose restorations dental-crownshelp Dr. Edward Yates, your dentist in Norwich, CT, to improve the appearance of oddly shaped or stained teeth, protect compromised bone structure, and even fill a gap in your smile—read on to learn more!


What are dental crowns?

Made of porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, ceramic, or resin, these restorations are used to cover the visible parts of your teeth. Crowns are hollow inside, allowing them to slip over your teeth easily once they have been properly prepared for treatment.

Dental crowns are attached to your teeth with dental cement to ensure that they don't move when you bite and chew. The restorations feel completely natural and are available in common tooth shades to ensure that they successfully blend in with your smile.


Crowns repair and protect teeth

Your Norwich dentist may recommend a crown if you've broken a tooth. Crowns restore the normal height and width of your teeth and make it possible to chew normally once again. Pain is common after a break and occurs when the broken edges are exposed to the air. Adding a crown seals off the tooth, stopping your pain.

The restorations also prevent at-risk teeth from breaking or fracturing. Teeth can become fragile if they've recently cracked, are naturally brittle, have received large fillings, or underwent a root canal procedure. Your new crown will absorb strong biting forces that can cause fragile teeth to fracture.


Crowns restore missing teeth

Crowns are used in both bridges and dental implants to replace missing teeth. Bridges consist of artificial teeth attached to crowns on either side. The crown portion of the bridge securely anchors it in place.

These restorations are also connected to dental implants to completely restore lost teeth. Dental implants are synthetic root replacements that bond to your jawbone, and are topped with dental crowns to form a complete and stable artificial tooth.


Improving your appearance is easy with dental crowns

Dental crowns can be used to conceal a variety of cosmetic issues, including:

  • Discolorations
  • Oddly shaped or crooked teeth
  • Short teeth
