There are many different options for restoring your teeth to ideal function and form. Whether your teeth have cosmetic or physical defects, a great option for restoration is getting a dental crown. Crowns are very flexible and can treat many different issues.

-You need to protect a weak tooth from tooth decay or from breaking.
-You need to restore a tooth that has been broken or worn down.
-You need to cover and support a tooth that has a large filling but doesn’t have enough tooth structure to hold it.
-You need to hold a dental bridge in its place.
-You need to disguise a tooth that is extremely misshapen or discolored.
-You need to cover a dental implant.
-You need to improve the appearance of your smile.

While dental crowns can’t really decay, the teeth they repair can. Keeping up on your good hygiene habits is incredibly important to keep your teeth healthy. Brush and floss your teeth every day, especially around the tooth with the crown, and be sure to come in for your dental exam and cleaning twice a year.
