Dental crowns, as a dental treatment option, have become quite popular these days. They can serve as substitutes to perform various functions that are necessary for you to be able to enjoy a smile that is both strong and healthy. From time to time, severely damaged teeth or teeth that are broken can’t be successfully repaired with the use of filling materials. These situations are exactly what crowns are needed for. Dental crowns and bridges are the best options for repairing badly damaged teeth.
Dental crowns are basically caps that are shaped like teeth. These “caps” are placed over the teeth to cover them and restore their shape as well as their size and strength. Dental crowns are often also used to enhance the appearance of patients’ teeth. The crown encases the entire visible part of a tooth after being cemented into place. A crown is either cemented onto one of your existing teeth or onto an implant.
Dental crowns are a reliable option for repairing severe dental problems. They offer a functional bite that goes along with a complete vibrant-looking smile.
Dental crowns can be used for a number of reasons. They are generally used in situations where, for some reason, cavities can’t be filled. Crowns are also ideal for replacing missing teeth when you may need a dental bridge. Dental crowns can furthermore be used as an option for restoration after root canal treatment or for covering weakened or cracked teeth in order to strengthen them. Interestingly, dental crowns can sometimes be used for cosmetic reasons to improve the appearance of your smile.
