Tooth colour, tooth shape, tooth position, and the general appearance of the gums. For example in our culture people set whiter teeth as a priority, as it increases the attractiveness of a person.
There are various aesthetic dentistry options to improve the dental aesthetics of a person. These include crowns, implants, veneers or teeth whitening.

An artificial tooth crown corresponds to a natural tooth crown.
A dental crown is a form of tooth replacement, which is used after an implantation or just on top of the natural dental roots.
There are different reasons why the natural tooth crown must be replaced. People can lose a tooth as a result of caries or just in a common accident.
There are different types of dental crowns, made of various materials, like ceramic or metal-ceramic. The choice of the material depends on the patient’s specific conditions. A dental crown plays a very important role in the aesthetics.
