Dental crowns are custom-fitted to cover your entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. They are available in a variety of materials such as metal alloy, gold, and porcelain. With proper care, your crown can last upwards of 15 years and will allow you to do all of the normal day-to-day things your normal teeth can do.
If you have a missing tooth, it can cause the surrounding teeth to shift. This can cause crowding, gaps in other areas of your teeth, and bite issues. Which can lead to issues when it comes to chewing and speech. A much greater issue associated with missing teeth can be bone loss which can cause issues with the structure of your facial features. All of these issues combined can cause patients to lose confidence in their smiles.
