Oral Health Surprises: Dental Crowns

Posted .

Do you have an effective oral health care treatment plan in place to deal with any issues that you have as far as damage to your teeth and gums go? Even if you’re unsure of what kind of restoration you will need, come and visit your dentist, as there are several opportunities available to help repair your smile regardless of damage. One of the most effective forms of tooth restoration for dental damage treatment is through the use of a dental crown.

Dental crowns are known for their ability to conceal teeth on all sides to provide additional protection down to the gum line so that the tooth can continue to thrive for decades to come. Even with a single crown, you could potentially provide a lifetime of support for a damaged tooth. In several instances, dental crowns can save teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted.

Even if a tooth is so worn down that no other options are available except for a tooth extraction, it may be possible to restore the tooth and allow it to function again once more with dental crowns. Dental crowns can even be used in situations where a tooth has broken into bits, and it will need to be bound together so it can properly function once again.

Because dental crowns are customizable, not only will they improve the quality of your smile, they can improve its look and add an additional layer of protection for the future. Dental crowns can even be used to cover previous restorations such as implants and bridges. Several individuals have often found that covering up root canals with dental crowns is also helpful to ensure further damage does not occur to the tooth and root canal. In situations where a child is at a high risk for tooth decay, a safe and effective treatment to consider for them is a dental crown. They can even be used for dental fillings to bind a tooth and filling together if not enough tooth remains to hold the filling on its own.
