Dental restorations were one used exclusively for practical purposes, and while they are still put into action for those reasons, the advancements that have occurred when it comes to materials has made it possible for us at Hurst Dental Care to offer you cosmetic restorations that will improve the look of a tooth instead of or in addition to strengthening it.
It was not all that long ago when metal was primarily used for the making of dental crowns. It sure was strong enough to get the job done, but it stood out like a sore thumb. Metal didn’t blend in at all with typical tooth color. So while it was fine for those teeth in the back, the ones that don’t show when smiling or speaking, they were far from ideal for front or side teeth. New materials were developed that were more visually appealing, but it is with the rise of ceramic restorations that our San Diego cosmetic dentist can truly assure you of a crown that is not only aesthetically ideal, but also has the strength and durability to fill you with confidence in its ability to last. Furthermore, they resist stains well, so while they are not stain-proof, you can expect that they will retain their color for longer than other tooth-colored materials. Of course, crowns are used in many situations, from addressing cracked and chipped teeth to restoring one that has undergone root canal. A crown is also the tooth portion of a dental implant, and employed to secure a dental bridge. Our San Diego cosmetic dentist is pleased to make these cosmetically beneficial ones available to you.
