There are times when a tooth may appear to be too damaged to save. However, even in cases of extreme damage, a dental crown may help you to keep your tooth. Dental crowns cap and conceal teeth on all sides down to the gum line for a solid hold that can provide decades of support. In several cases, dental crowns have even been known to last a lifetime.
Dental crowns can be a highly effective treatment option. They can even provide treatment for teeth that otherwise would continue to suffer dental damage. In cases where a tooth has shattered into bits, it may be possible to bind the pieces together through the use of a dental crown. Crowns can even hold weak teeth together that are at an increased susceptibility to cracking or breaking apart. Crowns also hold bridges in place. They have even been customized and crafted to fit over implants, and can protect your teeth after root canals.
