Dental Crowns | McKnight Signature Dental

If you have a broken or weak tooth, it can make eating difficult. You might find yourself chewing on one side of your mouth, which leads to uneven wear on teeth and puts you at an increased risk for cavities or other dental health issues.

If you have a misshapen or flawed tooth, it can make you self-conscious when smiling, speaking, or laughing.

A Dental crown in our Leawood, KS dental office is versatile because it can save a weak tooth and cosmetically enhance a flawed tooth. In other words, a dental crown makes eating easier and may even prompt you to smile more.

The Versatility of Dental Crowns in Leawood, KS

If you have a tooth that is weakened through a failed root canal or other trauma, a dental crown provides strength and helps prevent breakage. In this situation, one of our dentists may recommend a dental crown.

If you have a tooth that is discolored, chipped, or oddly shaped, a dental crown can hide these issues, too.

As far as cosmetic issues, a dental crown can help with the following:

  • Small gaps between teeth
  • Small chips in teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Bite line appearance

Imagine one option that can take care of two problems!

Dental Crown Placement

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that goes on over a prepared tooth. It looks and functions like your natural teeth and is even shaped and colored to blend in seamlessly.  

Our patients have been very happy with their smiles following crown placement therapy. We’re confident that you’ll be happy, also.
