Tooth injury happens unexpectedly, sometimes with a sudden accident and other times with the slow accrual of stress to the teeth. Often, the damage can be repaired with a simple filling or bonding, but sometimes the damage is too much and other treatment options will be used.
Moderate damage can often be repaired using dental crowns. Crowns are a great treatment that strengthens the teeth by removing the weak enamel of your tooth and replacing it with a strong cap made from a strong material such as porcelain.
Dental crowns can treat a lot of different dental problems. Some of these include repairing severely decayed teeth, badly chipped or cracked teeth, large fillings that have fallen out, cosmetically unappealing teeth, or securing dental bridges in place. Crowns have a lot of flexibility in how they fix your smiles.
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.
