It is advisable to evaluate the oral health of each tooth individually to determine if any restorative or reparative measures are necessary. Prompt treatment of any dental damage is critical to prevent further health complications. In cases where severely damaged or broken teeth are at risk of failing, dental crowns may be a highly effective treatment option to genetically enhance the appearance of the smile.
Dental crowns not only cap and conceal damaged teeth, but also provide long-lasting protection against future damage, while improving the overall look of the teeth. Dental crowns are highly customizable to match the color, shape, size, and functionality of the natural teeth, and they are known to be extremely durable and long-lasting. In situations where a tooth requires a filling but there is not enough tooth structure remaining, a dental crown can be inserted to bind the tooth and filling together. Additionally, dental crowns can be used as an additional layer of protection for children who are at high risk of tooth decay.
