What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are used to cover a tooth that needs extra strength and a durable bite force. Most often these teeth have been injured due to an accident or trauma - or have been subjected to decay and root canal treatment. With the help of a dental crown, also known as a cap, the tooth can be restored.
Dental crowns can be used in various types of dentistry, both as cosmetic and restorative. For instance, they can protect a tooth that has been chipped, fractured, or cracked. They can be used to restore integrity to a tooth that has had a root canal or large cavity. And they are also used as the natural-looking tooth as part of a dental implant.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental procedures that are versatile can be very beneficial. Dental crowns are one of them. Dental crowns:
- Are long-lasting and very strong
- Improve the overall appearance of a tooth
- Replace large fillings
- Restore the integrity of a tooth after a root canal
