Are you aware of all the benefits that a dental crown can provide? A dental crown goes on top of a tooth on all sides to permanently protect a tooth from various incidents that can arise. Not only will you be much better protected against the risk of tooth decay, but even oral accidents and injuries are less likely to damage your smile thanks to the additional shielding that a crown can provide.
Dental crowns are cosmetic dentistry procedures because not only do they help protect a tooth, but they can drastically improve its look as well. Did you know that dental crowns can often save teeth that otherwise may have needed to be extracted? Because dental crowns are designed from a durable material, they can be crafted and customized as needed to give your smile a look you desire. They can even be colored to the closest shade in your mouth to blend in with your other nearby teeth.
Another benefit of dental crowns comes from the fact that they are often used in situations as a binding agent. If you have a tooth that has shattered into bits, a crown can be placed over the top of the pieces to bind the bits of tooth together. Not only will the tooth look better, but it will function effectively too. Similarly, dental crowns can be used in situations where you need a filling placed but not enough tooth remains to hold it by itself. Dental crowns can even be used as covers for dental implants, root canals, and dental bridges.
