Oral Health Care Damage Control: Dental Crowns

Posted .

Very few cosmetic dentistry procedures can say that they provide the same level of care as a dental crown. This is because dental crowns can often be used in situations where teeth are so severely damaged that all the restoration options outside of extracting the tooth completely cannot suffice. Furthermore, dental crowns have been known for saving many teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted.

A single dental crown can cap and conceal a tooth on all sides down to the gum line. Furthermore, they are extremely beneficial for weak or broken teeth that are so badly damaged that they will need to be held together with the crown itself. In situations where bits of teeth may be all that is left of a tooth, dental crowns may be required.

Dental crowns can even be used in situations where they a tooth needs a filling but there is not enough tooth natural tooth remaining after the filling is placed. Dental crowns can also be used to top off previous restorations, including dental bridges, dental implants, and root canals. For children who are at a high risk of tooth decay, a dental crown is a wonderful choice to protect weaker teeth. Crowns can last anywhere from a few decades all the way up to the rest of your life.
