If you are missing some of your teeth, don’t worry; Dr. Cohen and Dr. DeCesare can help you as they know that losing one or more teeth has an unwelcome impact socially and psychologically.
Crowns are covers that fit over your teeth to restore and strengthen them. Some reasons for choosing crowns are to cover discolored or unevenly shaped teeth, to protect weak or decayed teeth, to restore a fractured tooth, to attach a bridge or to strengthen teeth after a root canal treatment.
Before and After
Crowns can be made of different materials, including acrylic, metal and porcelain. All porcelain crowns are a good choice for front teeth as they look the most natural. For back teeth, metal crowns covered in porcelain, or all-metal crowns are usually used. Back teeth require a stronger material to withstand the forces of chewing.
What are the benefits of crowns from a cosmetic and health point of view? A crown can be utilized to repair a chipped or fractured tooth and is by far the best way to protect a weak or badly decayed tooth. A crown is also a very good way to cover a single or number of teeth that are stained or have become yellow due to tetracyline, coffee, tea, or other harsh staining properties.
