There are many restorative dental treatments available, with dental fillings and dental bonding taking place as most popular. When those aren’t enough, other treatments, like dental crowns, become useful. They’re also very versatile restorations, treating everything from cracked teeth to securing a bridge.
Dental crowns are a restorative dental treatment that replaces the enamel of your teeth with a strong material such as porcelain, metal, resin, or a combination of the materials. This provides structure and strength to a heavily damaged tooth.
This treatment is useful in many different circumstances. Some of the problems that crowns can treat include; cracked teeth, severely decayed teeth, chipped or broken teeth, to cover a tooth with an oversized filling, cover a tooth that lost a large filling, to hold a dental bridge in place, or to cover a cosmetically unappealing tooth.
Once you have a dental crown, you need to be sure you clean and maintain it consistently. The crown itself can’t decay, but it can hide decay lower on the tooth if not cared for.
