Did You Know Dental Crowns Can Be Used For Cosmetic Purposes, Such as Concealing A Crooked Tooth?
If you are unhappy with your smile due to crooked teeth, causing you to be embarrassed to show it off, consider dental crowns from Lake Chaparral Dental Care in Calgary, Alberta, and Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma. Dr. Palka places dental crowns with great regularity and success for patients needing to restore a tooth which has become compromised by advanced decay or which has undergone a root canal. While these are common reasons for a dental crown, are you aware that crowns can be used to conceal some cosmetic issues, including crooked teeth?
Ideal For A Straight Appearance
For any tooth which is crooked, uneven, or otherwise cosmetically unappealing, a dental crown can be used as a treatment choice. It is important to understand that this is strictly a cosmetic dental treatment that will not actually correct a misaligned tooth but will instead conceal it with a cap that will appear straight in your smile. This is ideal for teeth which are considered mildly crooked. If you have serious alignment issues, you should consider orthodontics.
An excellent example of using a dental crown in this manner is if you have a smile full of straight teeth … except for one. You have one crooked tooth, making braces an excessive treatment. Instead, consider a dental crown to cover the tooth. Your smile will then look as great as you always wanted.

Why Choose Dental Crowns?
If you are looking for a cosmetic solution to a crooked tooth, porcelain crowns are a great choice. A crown is a ceramic shell bonded onto a tooth, effectively capping and concealing the natural tooth underneath. Preparation of the natural tooth, including enamel removal, will need to be done for the crown to fit for a natural look. Dental crowns are stain resistant, strong, and resistant to chips and breaks. Due to these reasons and more, crowns are becoming a popular choice for cosmetic purposes as well as for restoration.
