Are you suffering from any damage to teeth? Do you have any teeth that may not be damaged, but you feel are especially vulnerable to future damage or decay? Do you have any teeth that look abnormal or unsightly and suffer from deep stains or discolorations that traditional brushing and flossing or teeth whitening treatments cannot remove? If so, one highly effective treatment option to consider is a dental crown.
Enhancing your smile with a dental crown improves the oral aesthetics of a tooth. They will also add an additional layer protection to teeth. This is because crowns can shield teeth on all sides with an additional barrier that can help protect against numerous oral ailments including dental erosion and tooth decay. Dental crowns are highly durable and will minimize the risk associated with harmful acids.
Protecting teeth from additional damage is extremely important to ensure the longevity of a tooth. Furthermore, the longevity of a dental crown can potentially last as long as your tooth does. Furthermore, dental crowns can even protect teeth that have had previous restorations, including root canals, dental implants, and dental bridges.
In many situations, it may be possible to use a dental crown to hold together parts of broken teeth that have split apart. Dental crowns can be used for weak teeth that have begun to crack or break apart as well. Furthermore, crowns are highly effective in situations where teeth have large fillings, but there isn’t enough tooth remaining to support the filling on its own.
