Dental crowns can improve your smile in numerous ways. They give weak or damaged teeth a strong, new exterior, while also restoring biting and chewing functions. Additionally, dental crowns give teeth with stains or other cosmetic issues a flawless new look. Dr. Tena Powe and Dr. Walter Peavler, the knowledgeable dentists at Central Kentucky Dental in Winchester, KY, can restore function and beauty to your smile with dental crowns.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are hollow caps that fit over existing teeth to strengthen and protect them, or to improve their appearance. Various materials can be used to make crowns, but porcelain is a popular choice because it closely resembles the look of natural tooth enamel. Each dental crown is custom fabricated for the best possible fit, which allows crowns to blend in with the rest of your smile and look completely natural.

Dental crowns can serve many purposes, from strengthening teeth that are worn down and weak to improving the appearance of teeth with cosmetic concerns, such as stains, discolorations, or chipped edges. Examples of the different ways dental crowns can improve your smile include:

  • Strengthening weak or damaged teeth
  • Restoring biting and chewing functions
  • Protecting teeth from additional damage
  • Preventing loose fillings from falling out
  • Improving the appearance of teeth

Another way dental crowns can improve a smile is by filling in the gaps caused by tooth loss. Crowns function as replacement teeth when placed over dental implants. They can also be used to anchor a dental bridge in place. The crowns are positioned at the ends of the bridge and fit over the existing teeth on either side of the gap where teeth are missing. Whether you want to improve the function or beauty of your smile, the skilled dentists at our office in Winchester can help with custom dental crowns.

Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns have many benefits, including strengthening weak or damaged teeth, protecting them from further damage, and restoring regular biting and chewing functions. Dental crowns can also transform your smile by concealing a wide range of imperfections. They can improve the appearance of stained, chipped, cracked, or oddly shaped teeth, for example. Additionally, crowns look completely natural. They are also quite durable and can last for many years when cared for properly.
