Dental crowns make smiles happy. With dental crowns, your teeth are better protected from all types of damage that may occur. Dental crowns work by introducing a cap over a tooth, which can be adjusted and altered to suit the needs of your smile. This improves the look of the tooth and even its functions.
Dental crowns are useful for a variety of oral ailments, including covering and protecting cracked or damaged teeth, as well as concealing unsightly or heavily discolored teeth that cannot be easily repaired with teeth whiteners. Dental crowns can even be used to help protect prior dental treatments such as dental bridges, dental implants, cavity fillings, and even root canals.
Dental crowns are known for their superior protection they offer for teeth, but are also extremely durable and can continue functioning properly for many years. Characteristically, a standard dental crown will last over 2 decades, but it is possible for it to last an entire lifetime. If for any reason the crown is jarred loose, it can be easily repaired or replaced by your dentist.
