Today, cosmetic dentists can help their patients achieve all sorts of smile makeovers by taking advantage of new and improved aesthetic dental materials like porcelain. There are so many cosmetic improvements possible today that it's almost easier to ask what can't be achieved with aesthetic dental treatments!

You probably know something about dental crowns and that dentists use them to protect and strengthen a damaged tooth. 

But modern porcelain dental crowns not only allow you to use the tooth again; their aesthetic qualities also enable your cosmetic dentist in Aloha to use them to improve the appearance of your smile. 

How Dental Crowns Work

When a tooth is weakened by decay, trauma, teeth grinding, or root canal therapy, it needs to be protected and supported to prevent further damage. A dental crown is designed to completely encase a compromised tooth to restore its form and function.

How Dentists Use Aesthetic Dental Crowns

Modern dental materials are designed to mimic the natural luster and translucency of tooth enamel. Since dental crowns conceal your entire tooth, there are several ways our cosmetic dentists use them to improve your smile:

  • Protect cracked, broken, or fractured teeth
  • Even out wide gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Cover a discolored tooth that can’t be whitened
  • Alter the shape or size of a tooth to bring harmony to your smile

Placing dental crowns usually takes just two appointments and about two to three weeks to complete. In no time at all, you can be enjoying an improved appearance and renewed confidence!
