Fun Facts About Dental Crowns

Posted .

Do you have any severely injured or damaged teeth? Although you may think a tooth extraction is in your future, dental crowns may be able to save the day. With dental crowns, teeth can be well-preserved and guarded to allow the tooth to continue on. They can even help the tooth look more stunning than ever.

Dental crowns are tooth restoration services designed to benefit your smile in a variety of manners. One of the key features of dental crowns is that they fully conceal damaged or broken teeth down to the gum line. Crowns work by taking out a small amount of tooth enamel to allow the crowns to bond directly to a tooth and function as a hood or cap. A dental crown can be used to enhance a tooth’s look, function, and alignment.

Dental crowns can also be implemented to conceal pre-existing dental procedures. If you have had a dental procedure placed in your mouth in the past, such as dental bridges, implants, root canals, or fillings, dental crowns can protect those treatments and guard them against future damage. If you have a broken tooth that can no longer hold itself together, crowns can be used to become a bond between the parts and allow the tooth to be fully functioning once again.
