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.

Dental crowns are commonly used to repair moderate damage to teeth. The treatment involves removing the weak enamel of the tooth and securing a cap to take its place made from a strong material such as porcelain to add structure and strength.

Because crowns are a very flexible treatment, they are used to treat many different problems. Whether you have cracked or chipped teeth, teeth that are severely decayed, lost a large filling, have a cosmetically unappealing tooth or need a bridge secured to your teeth, dental crowns will likely be a great solution.

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.
