What are Dental Crowns Used For?

Dental crowns can be used for a large number of conditions and cases. Some of them are mentioned below:


  • For broken, chipped teeth

If you have one or more broken or chipped teeth then dental crowns can be used to cover and encase such teeth for an even smile.


  • For Weak Teeth

If one or more teeth are weak or decaying, and this causes difficulty in chewing food, then dental crowns can be used to cover and encase such teeth for facilitating eating.


  • For the Perfect Smile

Dental implant crowns can definitely go a very long way in giving you the perfect smile! They give you strengthened, shiny white and even shaped teeth for an amazing grin.


  • For Filling Gaps

Many of us have gaps between our teeth, either because they grew that way or because of any trauma/disease which caused tooth loss. Whatever the reason, gaps can be a not-so-pleasant part of your smile and in order to get rid of them to get perfectly aligned teeth, dental implant crowns can be used by dentists in some cases.


  • For Covering Dental Implants

You may have a metal implant in place of a lost tooth which stands out every single time you open your mouth. For such a case, dental crowns may be used as a cap to cover and hide the implant.


  • For Preventing Decay

Dental crowns can be used as a protective barrier in people prone to bad oral hygiene, especially children who for example, indulge in too much candy. In such cases, dental crowns can serve to protect the natural teeth from getting cavities and decaying.
