Dental crowns improve the look and function of broken teeth and protect them from future damage. No matter the quality of a tooth, it is potentially possible to save it, or even bits of tooth that have split apart, from a potential extraction. Dental crowns bond to the outsides of a tooth or hold all bits of a tooth together for a durable hold that can last many years.
Dental crowns are useful for a variety of oral disorders, including covering and protecting cracked or damaged teeth, as well as concealing unsightly or heavily discolored teeth that cannot be easily fixed with teeth whiteners. Dental crowns can even be used to help shield previous dental treatments such as dental bridges, dental implants, cavity fillings, and even root canals.
Dental crowns are known for their superior protection they provide for teeth, but are also tremendously durable and can continue functioning properly for many years. Typically, a standard dental crown will last over 2 decades, but it is probable for it to last an entire lifetime. If for any reason the crown becomes loose, it can be easily fixed or replaced by your dentist.
