Dental Crowns: All About Their Cosmetic Value

You may have mixed feelings when you hear about dental crowns. On one hand, you feel appreciative that there is a restorative treatment that can fix your tooth, should you end up in serious need of a tooth rescue! On the other hand, you wonder if restoring your tooth with a crown is going to leave you with the structure and oral health that you want but without the look that you want. Then, of course, you hear that porcelain crowns are common and you have even more questions! Give our Pella, IA team a moment to get you all caught up on such details, so you recognize that today’s esthetically pleasing crowns offer you more than you might have imagined.

Can You Use Them For Cosmetic Reasons Alone?

Of course! We know, you think of dental crowns strictly as a restorative treatment. In most cases, they’re considered restorative because their primary purpose is to offer the full coverage improvement your tooth needs to regain structure, to receive protection, etc. However, sometimes, you can use porcelain crowns for cosmetic purposes (when your teeth require esthetic improvement that you’re just not going to be able to achieve through the usual cosmetic treatments like whitening or veneers).

Will Your Rescued Tooth Look Better With A Crown?

Of course. Remember that when we’re fixing a damaged tooth with a dental crown that we’re doing so with the entirety of your tooth and smile in mind. We will fix the tooth, while ensuring the finished result looks just like: Your healthy tooth! As a result, your smile will look like your previous smile before the damage.

What Makes Porcelain So Much Like Natural Tissue?

Porcelain dental crowns look so natural because the material happens to be quite like your dental tissue. It’s translucent. We can craft your crown with multiple layers. Light shines off of it like it does your smile. So, your tooth just ends up looking fixed!
