There are many restorative dental treatments available, with dental fillings and dental bonding taking place as most popular. When those aren’t enough, other treatments, like dental crowns, become useful. They’re also very versatile restorations, treating everything from cracked teeth to securing a bridge.
Crowns are a common restorative dentistry procedure which uses a strong material such as porcelain, resin, metal, or a combination of them, to replace the enamel of your tooth. Doing this adds strength and structure to the damaged or weak tooth.
This treatment is useful in many different circumstances. Some of the problems that crowns can treat include; cracked teeth, severely decayed teeth, chipped or broken teeth, to cover a tooth with an oversized filling, cover a tooth that lost a large filling, to hold a dental bridge in place, or to cover a cosmetically unappealing tooth.
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.
