Have you ever heard of a dental crown? If you have, do you know exactly how having a crown can help your smile? Similarly, do you know what benefits you can expect to enjoy if you decide on a crown?

Still, a crown—which can sometimes be referred to as a cap—can be used to complete a number of dental restorations or simply to help you with a broken, chipped, weakened, or cracked tooth. Fortunately, after a cap is placed, chewing will feel comfortable again.

Crowns are also designed to match the appearance of your smile. In fact, your crown will be specifically shaped to match the size, shape, and color of your smile. In other words, crowns are designed to blend with your natural teeth.

Fortunately, crowns are designed to be both attractive and functional. Again, if you have a broken or cracked tooth, you may struggle to chew and eat comfortably. Similarly, you could cause more damage to your tooth, which can leave your smile more vulnerable to infection.
