Can I get a crown on a tooth that’s too small?
Yes! In fact, with advances in materials that closely resemble dental enamel, we can design crowns to fix several aesthetic problems including poorly proportioned teeth!
What is a Crown?
A crown is a ceramic, cap-shaped dental prosthetic that is placed over an existing tooth to add strength, restore chewing function, and enhance your smile. Dr. Bacquet designs your crown to match the shade of surrounding teeth, which means they will blend in naturally, and no one ever has to know that you had any work done.
Since a crown conceals a tooth and looks natural, we can address multiple cosmetic problems:
- Misshapen teeth
- Severely stained teeth
- Teeth that appear too small
- Large gaps or spacing between teeth
An important thing to remember, however, is that getting a crown requires a permanent alteration of a tooth’s structure and may be considered too aggressive for purely cosmetic purposes. Fortunately, there are other treatments like dental bonding and porcelain veneers that are less invasive but produce the same transformative results.
