Have you ever wondered what the benefits and uses of a dental crown are? Dental crowns are tooth restoration procedures that completely cap a tooth down to the gum line. Dental crowns are most often used to conceal damaged teeth and to protect them from future damage. In many cases, dental crowns can restore the functionality of the broken tooth to its natural settings.
Dental crowns are useful for a variety of oral ailments, 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 protect 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 extremely durable and can continue functioning properly for many years. Typically, a standard dental crown will last over 2 decades, but it is possible for it to last an entire lifetime. If for any reason the crown becomes loose, it can be easily repaired or replaced by your dentist.
