Yearly Oral Health Reminders: Dental Crowns

Posted .

One of the most popular dental restoration treatments available in dentistry today is a dental crown. Dental crowns are both safe and highly effective. They’re extremely popular because they do wonders for protecting teeth. In addition, they are extremely durable, as dental crowns can easily last anywhere from two decades up to a lifetime of heavy use.

If you have suffered any broken teeth, or suffer from an oral accident, dental erosion, tooth decay, stains or discolorations, or any other element that has left your teeth in less than optimum condition, a dental crown may be needed. Dental crowns can often be credited with keeping teeth healthy in your mouth that otherwise would need to be extracted.

Dental crowns also highly effective treatments for individuals who have previous tooth restorations such as dental bridges, dental implants, and root canals. Not only can they safely protect your teeth, but they can protect the restoration treatments as well. Dental crowns are also highly effective at binding together dental fillings and teeth in situations where not enough tooth remains to hold the filling on its own. There are cases where bits of teeth have even been fused back together and held together with a dental crown to create a functional tooth once more.
