Oftentimes, even with proper oral health care, you may find yourself suffering from an oral accident or injury. If any damage should arise within your teeth and gums, it is important to visit your dentist for the necessary restorations and repairs. If you should ever suffer any damage to teeth, a cosmetic dentistry treatment such as dental crowns may be used.
Dental crowns are effective restorations that completely cap and conceal teeth on all sides. This is extremely beneficial for not only improving the look of a damaged tooth but also adding an additional layer of support for added protection. By concealing a tooth on all sides, it can be restored in situations when all other treatment options have been exhausted. In several instances, dental crowns can safely be employed for teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted.
Dental crowns are known for their durability. A single dental crown can easily last anywhere from a few decades up to a lifetime of support. Dental crowns are even used in situations where teeth have shattered into bits and need to be held back together. They can also be used to cover implants, bridges, root canals or any other restorations that may require additional protection. They can even be used in situations when a large filling is needed to fill a tooth, but not enough tooth remains.
