Not everyone is born with perfect teeth, and even if you are one of the lucky ones who are, you know that this perfection doesn’t last. As we age our teeth tend to weaken and become discolored, decaying over time and in some cases breaking or splitting. This can be extremely painful and embarrassing as our smiles are often the first thing that we show new people that we meet.

Fortunately, you have a few options. One is to have a crown or cap placed over the missing or damaged tooth in order to restore its natural appearance. Crowns are always custom-made to fit the size, shape, and color of your other teeth so that they blend in with the rest of your smile, and, if done properly, no one will ever even know that you are wearing one. Crowns come in permanent or temporary designs, and are even available for children with primary, or “baby”, teeth.

Crowns are cemented in place and color-matched to look natural next to your existing teeth. They often work in unison with other types of dental prosthetics such as implants and bridges, to restore damaged teeth, protect weak teeth, and to generally improve upon a tooth’s size or color. Teeth are stronger and more visually appealing as a result.

Crowns, like other dental prosthetics, often require multiple visits to the dentist, but the results are long-lasting. Depending on the materials used (stainless steel, metals, porcelain fused to metal, pure resin, pure ceramic, pure porcelain), and with proper care, dental crowns can last up to fifteen or twenty years.
