If you are in need of a dental crown, you are not alone — millions of patients across the world have one or more dental crowns placed each year. Crowns act as an artificial cap on the top of your tooth to help protect any potentially exposed tooth roots and to save the tooth from additional damage or trauma.
All About Crowns
If this is your first time receiving a dental crown, you may have questions or concerns. At Lakeforest Dental Associates, one of the most common questions we hear from our patients is whether their new dental crown will look and feel like a natural tooth.
The simplest answer is that there is no artificial replacement that can completely take the place of our natural teeth. Thanks to large advances in dental technology over the past several decades, however, the look and function of dental crowns have come a very long way.
If you are having a crown placed, Dr. Daftary will do his best to match the color of the crown to your existing teeth so that the crown will more seamlessly blend in with your current smile. Our crowns are made of porcelain and metal to help them remain durable and to hold up against the standard wear-and-tear of everyday life. Your crown will be strong and is designed to work together with your existing teeth to help improve the function of your bite.
