While dental crowns may not have the luster of the crowns of royalty, they can have a powerful effect on saving your smile. Often when we don’t take proper care of our teeth, they can wear away and lose their strength and shape. There are a number of things that can contribute to tooth decay including skipping regular dental checkups, eating hard candy and not brushing one’s teeth.

We depend on our teeth for so many things. Chewing, biting, speaking, smiling, whistling, the list goes on. Despite how well we take care of our teeth with regular brushing and flossing, they can become chipped, cracked, or eventually worn down. Worse yet, tooth decay causes some people to lose their teeth all together. When this happens, the issue isn’t only cosmetic. If the structure of your teeth becomes compromised, it can affect the health of your entire mouth.
