Dental crowns can improve your smile by strengthening and restoring damaged teeth. The appearance of teeth with stains or cosmetic concerns can also be improved with dental crowns. At Page Family Dentistry in Providence, RI, our experienced family dentists, Dr. Marc Page and Dr. Lawrence Page, can determine if certain teeth could benefit from dental crowns.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are hollow covers that are placed over teeth that are damaged or have cosmetic imperfections. Once in place, the crown completely encapsulates the tooth and gives it a strong, new exterior. For example, teeth that are worn down and too weak to readily perform biting and chewing functions can be made strong again by placing dental crowns over them. With the dental crowns in place, the teeth are restored and can bite and chew food again.

Since a dental crown is placed over the affected tooth, it can also conceal a wide range of flaws. Teeth that are stained, discolored, misshapen, chipped, or cracked, for example, can be given a flawless new look by placing dental crowns over the top. Dental crowns look just like natural teeth and readily blend in with the rest of your smile once they are in place. The skilled family dentists at our office in Providence, RI, can help you decide if dental crowns are the right option for improving your smile.

How Dental Crowns Help

Dental crowns can help improve your smile in several ways. They can strengthen, restore, and protect damaged teeth, as well as enhance the appearance of teeth with cosmetic issues. Some of the many ways dental crowns can improve your smile include:

  • Improving the appearance and shape of teeth that are oddly shaped
  • Improving the appearance of teeth with stains or discolorations
  • Preventing a cracked or chipped tooth from becoming worse
  • Strengthening and restoring teeth affected by extensive decay
  • Protecting a tooth after root canal treatment
  • Preventing loose dental fillings from falling out

Dental crowns are an effective way to strengthen, restore, and improve your smile.
