Protect Yourself from Tooth Loss with Dental Crowns

Posted .

Protect yourself from tooth loss with dental crowns. A dental crown is a tooth restoration treatment where a tooth is completely encased within an artificial cap to prevent further damage and improve the look of the tooth. Not only can dental crowns improve broken teeth, but they can also be used for discolored or stained teeth.

A tooth can be damaged in a variety of ways. Teeth can be worn down over time. They can cause loss of tooth enamel due to decay. They can be cracked, broken, or chipped from foods, sports, or oral accidents. They can also be ruined due to other physical ailments. However, with many of these catastrophes, dental crowns can still restore your teeth and prevent further damage to your tooth, and can save a tooth from a tooth extraction.

There are a variety of dental procedures that may not mesh well with your other teeth, or they no longer give the look you are hoping for. This includes dental fillings, dental implants, and root canals. Even if you have a dental filling that will not hold because there is not enough tooth left to support a filling, a crown can be placed over top the tooth and the filling to seal the tooth and prevent tooth failure.
