Dental crowns are one of the most commonly used dental restoration treatments available. They are incredibly flexible, being able to treat a large number of different dental issues, from the purely cosmetic to the structural. Here are some of the dental issues dental crowns can treat:
-You need to protect a weak tooth from tooth decay or from breaking.
-You need to restore a tooth that has been broken or worn down.
-You need to cover and support a tooth that has a large filling but doesn’t have enough tooth structure to hold it.
-You need to hold a dental bridge in its place.
-You need to disguise a tooth that is extremely misshapen or discolored.
-You need to cover a dental implant.
-You need to improve the appearance of your smile.
Keeping good dental hygiene habits will be very important for keeping your crown healthy. While the crown itself can’t decay, the tooth under it still can, so be sure to brush your teeth twice a day and floss once. Also, getting your regular checkups with our dentist will help you keep your smile healthy.
