Building your best smile with the use of a dental crown is a highly effective option if you wish to restore any lost functions that may be associated with weak or broken teeth. If you do have a tooth that is extremely worn down or is liable to suffer tooth decay in the future, concealing it with a dental crown can be extremely effective.
Building better smiles begins with repairing week or broken teeth. If you have any damage to fix, dental crowns can provide a cap to conceal a damaged tooth for an additional layer of support. Even though your tooth enamel does help to provide protection for your teeth, it can be damaged much easier than a crown can.
In situations where you need to repair teeth and no other viable treatment options can effectively be used, dental crowns can often be your last line of defense before a tooth may need to be extracted. Dental crowns can even be used in situations where previous procedures, such as bridges or implants, are in place and need to be covered. Children who are at an elevated risk for toothaches can also benefit from dental crowns, as they can be safely placed for additional protection.
