Find out all that dental crowns could do to improve the health of a damaged tooth.

You probably already know about dental crowns, after all they have been around for a long time; fortunately, advancements in dental dental crownstechnology have made it possible to get a dental crown that looks just like a real tooth. From the office of our River Forest, IL dentist, Dr. Courtney Villari, find out more about dental crowns and when your smile could benefit from them.

Whether your tooth has been damaged due to a sports injury, accident or infection, these damaged and weakened teeth can easily be revived with the help of a dental crown. These tooth-shaped caps are designed to fit over your tooth and are custom made to go over the damaged tooth to make it strong and resilient again. Since the crown encases the portion of the tooth that is visible, it will act as a protective barrier and also improve the overall appearance of a tooth.

While dental crowns are often placed over broken, fractured or cracked teeth, they can also be used to cosmetically enhance a misshapen, discolored and unsightly tooth. Plus, since a dental crown is made to look just like a real tooth, no one will even know that you have a dental crown.

While there are a variety of different materials that can be used to create a dental crown, many patients in River Forest choose porcelain or ceramic crowns, which are designed to match the shade of your teeth so that they blend right into your smile. Of course, each type of dental crown is made to cater to a full range of personal needs, so don’t hesitate to talk to us about which crown is right for you.
