Did you know that there is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can vastly improve the look of teeth and is also highly effective at covering damage and discoloration? It is called a dental crown, and it could be your ticket to better oral health.
With dental crowns, the damage that has occurred to a tooth, even untreatable stains and discolorations, can be treated with dental crowns. Dental crowns work by fully covering teeth down to the gumline for a durable hold that can last a lifetime. With a dental crown in place, a tooth can be shaped, sized, and customized as needed.
Dental crowns are known for being protectors of teeth because they can prevent outside forces from damaging a tooth. Dental crowns are especially effective against tooth decay and cavities. In the case of cavities, dental crowns can cover teeth that require dental fillings but do not have enough surface area remaining to effectively hold the filling. In this situation, dental crowns will bind the tooth and the filling together, and can even restore functionality to the tooth, making it a productive part of your mouth once more.
