How Can Dental Crowns Save Your Smile?

Posted .

How can dental crowns save your smile? A dental crown is a tooth restoration treatment that can save a tooth from extraction by preventing further damage from occurring by placing a cap directly on top of the selected tooth completely concealing it in the process. Dental crowns can also improve the look of a damaged or discolored tooth as they can be tailored for the look and color you desire, ensuring a seamless blend into your smile.

No matter if your teeth have been damaged over a lifetime of wear, dental crowns may still be able to save cracked teeth. Weak or decayed teeth can also benefit from dental crowns, and in some cases, a tooth may be broken or fractured, but a dental crown could be formed to hold the piece together and save the tooth.

Countless other dental procedures can also benefit from the use of dental crowns such as root canals, dental fillings, and dental implants. Dental crowns can also be used in situations where the damage to a tooth is too severe to be restored with other services.
