Crowning Glory: Aesthetic Dental Crowns

Crown MaterialsThe first known dental crowns were made as far back as 200 A.D. when Etruscans used gold to create crowns and bridges. Can you imagine what the process must have been like without the technology we have now? If you’d rather not, we can’t blame you!

Thanks to digital x-rays and impressions, dentists today can create crowns that fit so naturally in the mouth, you’ll forget you weren’t born with them. The updated materials help even more with their blendability, especially ceramic and porcelain.

But I Love Gold!

Gold is still an option for crowns today, and it’s not a bad option in terms of durability—they’re extremely fracture-resistant and seal well to prevent recurrent tooth decay. However, gold is usually the most expensive material for the creation of crowns, and most people want their dental restorations to be a secret only they know—especially if the tooth in need of crowning is an incisor or canine.

For those anterior (front) teeth, porcelain and ceramic are excellent crown options; they’re the most economical solution and can be color-matched to blend in with your smile perfectly.

Dental crowns are prosthetics primarily placed to restore damaged teeth, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful, too! If you’re wondering how you can improve the health and beauty of your smile, contact the Midlothian dentists at Hawkins Family Dentistry today! We’d love to make your smile the crowning glory of your face!
