Some Orem residents who have a weak or broken tooth may want to research dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. A crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped and when it is in place, it will cover the portion of the covered tooth that is above the gum line.
Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. Your Orem area cosmetic dentist will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.
Dental crowns have been used successfully in Orem cosmetic dentistry for decades.
Many Orem area dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.
If you think a dental crown may be right for you, check with your Orem dentist.
