Oral Health ABCs: Dental Crowns

Posted .

Are you interested in a dental crown treatment to restore your smile? Dental crown treatment options are tooth restoration options that are highly effective at improving the appearance of your smile and increasing the functionality of damaged teeth. Dental crowns are so effective that in some cases they can save teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted.

If you have teeth that are damaged or suffering from tooth decay, a dental crown treatment may be able to protect the tooth from future damage. Dental crowns use a cap to fully conceal a tooth down to the gum line. With adequate care, a dental crown can last many years. Even if you have teeth that are broken to bits, a dental crown can be used to bind the bits of tooth together.

Dental crowns are highly effective at protecting teeth as well as previous tooth treatments. This includes covering and concealing dental bridges, root canals, and even dental implants. If a tooth requires additional support beyond what tooth enamel can offer, dental crowns can often do the job. Dental crowns can even be used to bind teeth with a dental filling if there is not enough tooth left to hold the filling on its own.
