Crowns are useful for a number of reasons. The most common reason a crown is used is for a chipped tooth. When a tooth is chipped, not only is the aesthetic shape of your smile altered, the integrity of the tooth is at risk—making normal activities like chewing more difficult or even smiling embarrassing.
They are even useful in orthodontics. Size of teeth vary from person to person and can even vary within the mouth of a single individual. To achieve that healthy smile, you are looking for symmetry. When teeth are aligned by an orthodontist, it may be necessary to leave space between certain teeth so a dentist might complete the look you need with a crown or veneer to fill the gaps, even out the teeth, and perfect your smile.
When an orthodontist does this, remember that completing your smile and seeing a dentist to treat the given tooth is essential to maintaining the alignment of your new smile. The specified tooth will be grinded down to a conic shape and using medical grade dental adhesive, a perfectly shaped crown will be place on the tooth. The final look will be an evenly aligned smile with the same shade of white as your natural tooth.
