Choosing the perfect dental crown is a part of ensuring that your smile will function properly for many years to come. Even teeth that have been broken into bits can be saved with a properly placed dental crown. Listed below are important facts regarding dental crowns:

– Dental crowns are can repair or restore old dental procedures, including capping bridges, implants, and root canals.
– Crowns can add an additional layer of fortification to your teeth by fully covering a tooth on all sides above the gum line.
– Crowns can be used to conceal dental fillings. In some cases, crowns can hold teeth in place that need fillings but too little tooth remains.
– A single dental crown can last for over 20 years, or in some cases, an entire lifetime.
– Crowns can be used to repair broken teeth, including binding together bits of broken teeth.
– Crowns can restore the look of a tooth, since they are customized to each tooth’s needs. They can also be shaded to blend in with the natural color of your teeth.
