If you’re looking for a treatment that can help you achieve the best smile you can get, it is a good idea to consider dental crowns. Because dental crowns cap teeth down to the gum line, they can be adjusted and crafted for any modifications necessary to give your smile will look you desire.
In addition, the added protection on all sides of a tooth can greatly enhance the function of a tooth, and can even take teeth that were once thought to be dead weight in your mouth and make them functional once more. Dental crowns have been known to help improve speaking, eating, and biting skills that were once limited by damaged or broken teeth.
Dental crowns are extremely durable and known for their longevity. Although they can be knocked out from time to time, dental crowns can effectively last anywhere between two decades to a lifetime of heavy use. Furthermore, dental crowns can easily be used to conceal previous tooth restoration treatments such as dental bridges, dental implants, root canals, and dental fillings.
In situations where dental fillings need to be placed but there’s not enough tooth remaining, crowns can be added to bind the tooth and filling together. In addition, dental crowns can be extremely helpful for teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted, such as those that are cracking, breaking apart, or suffering from extreme tooth decay.
