Dental crowns seek to improve damaged smiles. If your smile is damaged, it can be easily repaired with the use of a tooth restoration treatment such as a dental crown. Dental crowns work by placing a cap on top of irregular or damaged teeth for a better look and an added layer of protection. Dental crowns even help to restore the lost function of a broken tooth.
Dental crowns are useful for a variety of oral abnormalities, including covering and protecting cracked or damaged teeth, as well as concealing unsightly or heavily discolored teeth that cannot be easily fixed with teeth whiteners. Dental crowns can even be used to help protect previous dental services such as dental bridges, dental implants, cavity fillings, and even root canals.
Dental crowns are known for their superior protection they provide for teeth, but are also awfully durable and can continue functioning properly for many years. Typically, a standard dental crown will last over 2 decades, but it is conceivable for it to last an entire lifetime. If for any reason the crown becomes loose, it can be easily restored or replaced by your dentist.
