Crooked teeth are sometimes unattractive. If your smile is not symmetrical, dental crowns can fix the problem. These restorations are designed to correct crooked, broken or erupting teeth. Even though crowns cannot move your teeth, they can straighten your smile and correct any misaligned teeth.

Crowns are made to fit your mouth perfectly and will restore your tooth’s shape and alignment. They will not stand out and look completely natural. Moreover, they will correct your smile while restoring your confidence and self-esteem. If you are interested in undergoing dental crowns for teeth, make an appointment with your dentist to discuss your treatment options. You can now have your perfect smile!
Crooked Teeth and Kids
Dental crowns can also be used to correct crooked teeth in kids. Most often, dental crowns are recommended for primary teeth (not milk teeth). These teeth may have large cavities, be underdeveloped, or even broken. Unfortunately, children are often the cause of broken teeth. If untreated, these cavities can shift the surrounding teeth, causing crooked teeth. And while it may be painful, dental crowns can restore your smile.
In some cases, orthodontic braces can straighten teeth without metal braces. Dental crowns and dental veneers are two common alternatives to metal braces. Patients can wear Invisalign aligners to straighten their teeth and avoid having to worry about food trapping between the braces.
