Is your smile in desperate need of a dental crown? Dental crowns are designed to improve the look of broken teeth by concealing them entirely. In addition, the teeth are further shielded from future damage above the gum line, which can drastically lower your risk for tooth decay and cavities.

Dental crowns are useful for a variety of oral problems, including covering and protecting cracked or damaged teeth, as well as concealing unsightly or heavily discolored teeth that cannot be easily fixed with teeth whiteners. Dental crowns can even be used to help protect previous dental procedures such as dental bridges, dental implants, cavity fillings, and even root canals.

Dental crowns are known for their superior protection they provide for teeth, but are also really durable and can continue functioning properly for many years. Typically, a standard dental crown will last over 2 decades, but it is likely for it to last an entire lifetime. If for any reason the crown becomes loose, it can be easily refurbished or replaced by your dentist.
