Your teeth can be damaged in many ways. Cavities, impact, habitual grinding, and other things can all necessitate getting your teeth repaired. Sometimes a filling isn’t enough to keep them strong. Dental crowns are an excellent option to explore if this is your case.
Crowns are a common restorative dentistry procedure which uses a strong material such as porcelain, resin, metal, or a combination of them, to replace the enamel of your tooth. Doing this adds strength and structure to the damaged or weak tooth.
There are many ways that crowns can be useful, as it’s a flexible treatment. Many dental problems are fixed relatively easily. Some of these include: severely decayed teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, to cover a tooth that has lost a large filling, to cover a cosmetically unappealing tooth, or to hold a dental bridge in place.
Once you have a dental crown, you need to be sure you clean and maintain it consistently. The crown itself can’t decay, but it can hide decay lower on the tooth if not cared for.
