Dental Facts on Dental Crowns

Posted .


If you are looking to enhance your oral health, it is important to make sure you are receiving the necessary treatments and cleanings to keep a smile in good shape. This includes not only keeping your teeth clean and free of harmful acids and debris but also to minimize the risk of oral accidents and injuries that can occur. However, should an oral accident or injury occur, a restoration treatment such as a dental crown will be needed for any broken or damaged teeth that are present.

Dental crowns are extremely popular oral health care choices because they can help restore the look of a tooth and give your smile its intended aesthetics. In addition, dental crowns can provide the added benefit of protecting teeth on all sides from numerous oral risks that may occur in the future. They will also be less vulnerable to numerous oral health risks such as dental erosion and tooth decay.  

If teeth have had previous dental restorations in the form of implants, bridges or root canals, it may be an effective option to protect it with a dental crown. Not only are dental crowns used to help protect teeth with previous restorations, but they can extremely durable and last over two decades and up to a year of normal wear.

When restoring lost functions of teeth, dental crowns can be extremely beneficial. For children who are at high risk for dental damage via tooth decay, dental crowns can be placed to add an additional layer of protection. In situations where teeth are completely split apart, it may be possible to use a dental crown to bind together the bits of broken teeth.

Seeking a better smile and better oral health without dental crown restorations is a difficult task to accomplish for individuals who seek true oral health superstardom.
