Make Your Smile More Esthetically Pleasing with a Custom Tooth Cap
Dental work can be done for various reasons. Restorative treatments help repair decayed or damaged teeth to restore their function and usefulness. Cosmetic treatments help improve the appearance of your teeth to enhance their esthetic appeal. Dental crowns or tooth caps can serve both restorative and cosmetic purposes. If you’re looking for a way to make your smile more attractive, contact Bingham-Lester Dentistry in Crofton, Maryland, to learn more about our cosmetic crown treatments.
A Tooth Cap for a Broken or Damaged Tooth
Dental crowns are custom-made caps placed over teeth to protect them from damage and improve their appearance. If your tooth has been compromised due to decay, trauma or infection, Dr. Bingham-Lester may recommend having it crowned after the decay or infection has been treated to keep it from further damage. Placing a crown over a weak or broken tooth will fortify its structure to keep it from crumbling. At the same time, your crown will seal out harmful bacteria to protect your tooth from future infection or decay.
Cosmetic Benefits of Dental Crowns
Porcelain crowns are extremely appealing as the porcelain material closely mimics the color and sheen of natural teeth. Cosmetic porcelain crowns can be used to conceal tooth flaws like chips, stains, and cracks so your tooth appears like new.
Teeth may degrade over time due to constant use. Age, poor oral care, dietary choices, and unhealthy lifestyle habits all affect the health and appearance of your teeth and can make your smile look less appealing.
By covering the imperfections on your teeth, cosmetic crowns can greatly improve your smile’s esthetic appeal. Dr. Bingham-Lester will custom-design your crowns to match the color, size, and shape of your teeth so that when you smile, they blend right in.
Cosmetic dental crowns can be used to address problems with:
- Old, worn teeth
- Chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Misshapen or slightly misaligned teeth
- Severely damaged teeth
