Do you have any teeth that are abnormal or irregular? Do they look normal and are colored like your natural teeth or are they broken or damaged? If you have suffered any dental damage that you would like to conceal, look no further than a dental crown for your oral health care treatments.

If you are in need of a smile restoration or are looking for a highly protective treatment to consider, dental crowns can be used. Not only are they designed to cap and conceal a tooth, but they can also improve the status of your smile because they’re completely customizable and can be altered based on the size, shape, and length a tooth needs. They can even be used to repair teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted.

If previous dental damage has occurred and a tooth restoration treatment is already in place, including a dental bridge, a dental implant, or root canal, dental crowns can add a further level of protection by concealing the restoration and the tooth. Dental crowns effectively protect teeth against numerous forms of dental damage that can arise.

In order to ensure your smile functions as intended, any teeth that were severely damaged may require dental crowns to restore their functions once more. However, if the pulp is already infected, it will need to be removed with a root canal therapy in order to save the tooth. In addition, children who are at extremely high risk for dental damage due to tooth decay and cavities can benefit from having dental crowns placed.
