At some point in time, one or more of your teeth may need to be repaired. If a tooth can be saved, one option is a dental crown, which will fully conceal a tooth and protect it. Every broken tooth deserves its own crown. Here are some things you should know about dental crowns:

– Dental crowns can enhance the look of a tooth, as they are customized to each tooth’s needs. They can also be shaded to match the original color of your teeth.
– Crowns can be used to protect dental fillings. In some cases, crowns can hold teeth in position that require fillings but too little tooth remains.
– Crowns are helpful with repairing or restoring old dental procedures, including capping bridges, implants, and root canals?
– A single dental crown can function for over 20 years, or in some cases, an entire lifetime.
– Crowns can be used to revitalize broken teeth, including binding together bits of broken teeth?
– Dental crowns can add an extra layer of protection to your teeth by completely concealing a tooth on all sides above the gum line?
