Are you aware of what a dental crown is? A dental crown is a tooth restoration treatment that can save a tooth from extraction by preventing further damage from arising. Dental crowns can also enhance the look of a damaged or discolored tooth. They work by attaching a cap directly on top of a selected tooth to completely conceal it. In addition, they can be designed for the look and color you desire, further guaranteeing a seamless blend into your smile.
Dental crowns can last over twenty years, but with the proper care, can last a lifetime. If a dental crown is knocked out, you should cover the area with a cotton swab doused with clove oil until you can visit your dentist to have it reset or replaced. Dental crowns can also be used to conceal previous dental treatments such as root canals, dental implants, and dental bridges.
Dental crown therapies rely on using advanced materials to cap or cover problematic teeth down to the gumline for a solid hold that prevents future damage from occurring. Furthermore, dental crowns can be fully customized to ensure your tooth receives the look, shape, color, and rotation that is most desirable and functional for your smile.
