What Issues Can Crowns Correct?

In this video, Dr. Chris Powell explains how dental crowns address issues like broken, discolored, worn, or irregularly shaped teeth, offering durable and aesthetic restoration.

People frequently ask about the types of dental issues that crowns can address. Essentially, crowns are a versatile solution used to correct a variety of dental problems. For instance, if you have a broken tooth, a crown can restore its structure, making it strong and functional again. Crowns are also effective for improving the appearance of discolored teeth that might not respond well to whitening treatments.
Additionally, crowns can be used to alter the size or shape of a tooth. This is particularly useful if you have teeth that are worn down, uneven, or naturally irregularly shaped, and you wish to achieve a more uniform look. Crowns encapsulate the entire visible portion of the tooth, providing a new outer surface that can be customized in color, shape, and size.
Overall, a dental crown offers a straightforward and durable solution for restoring both the functionality and aesthetics of your teeth. If you’re considering a crown for any of these issues, it’s a great option to explore for achieving a healthy and appealing smile.
