Dental crowns restore damaged teeth and improve the appearance of your smile by covering teeth that are stained or uneven.
Having broken or missing teeth can have a serious impact on your self confidence. Our interactions with others often start with a friendly smile. However, this can be tricky to pull off when you’re worried about revealing your smile. It’s no wonder so many people smile with their mouths closed. The good news, though, is that your fate is not sealed. Fortunately, the field of dentistry has several solutions for you, including the use of dental crowns to fill in those gaps.
Dr. Viviane Trinh offers several types of dental crowns at her practice, Viviane Trinh, DMD in New York City.

Before & Afters
What is a dental crown?
Dental crowns are often called caps because they cover, or cap, a damaged tooth. Applying crowns to replace lost teeth or to repair broken ones is very common.
A crown works like a cap that goes over the tooth or the space where the tooth was. A dental crown encases the entire tooth, so it’s a good way to restore its original strength, and since it’s cemented onto the existing tooth or an implant, it functions just like a normal tooth.
It is custom made to fit perfectly into any mouth. At the same time, it can support the structure of the tooth over which the crown is applied. Generally, a crown will cover the entire tooth all the way down to the gum, so that it looks natural and clean. No one will ever notice the difference, and your smile will be a thousand times brighter.
Crowns are often used to repair a cracked tooth or to restore the tooth after extensive decay. They’re often used to cover a tooth that has had a root canal. Crowns are used cosmetically to cover stained teeth. They can also be crafted to improve the appearance of teeth that are misshapen or out of alignment.
