To provide your smile with the charm it needs, make sure you are practicing effective oral health care through the use of highly beneficial treatment options. This includes restoring any damage that may arise with teeth. In some situations, you may completely lack the necessary treatment options to protect teeth due to the severity of the damage. However, even teeth that are scheduled for tooth extractions may potentially be saved through the use of a dental crown.
Dental crowns are highly effective and durable forms of tooth restorations as they not only protect teeth from further damage, but they provide an aesthetically superior look to a damaged tooth. They can be crafted and colored as needed to mimic the look of natural teeth and blend in with your overall healthy smile. A single dental crown can easily last anywhere from two decades up to a lifetime of use. They have even been shown to be beneficial for children and safe to insert for those that are at a high risk for tooth decay.
If you have previous restorations in places such as implants, bridges, or root canals, it is possible to conceal a tooth with further protection via a dental crown. Dental crowns can even bind together bits of broken teeth or be applied to cover fillings and teeth in which the tooth can no longer effectively hold a filling on its own. In situations where you have suffered irregularities to teeth, including weak or fractured teeth or your jawline has slowly begun to wear down, it may be the perfect time to speak with your dentist about the application of a dental crown.
