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 visits, eating hard candy and the obvious: not brushing one’s teeth.

There are several ways you can repair damaged or missing teeth. There are traditional dental treatments, such as fillings and advanced restorations, such as root canals and dental implants. Restorative treatments help repair teeth that have been damaged or lost due to tooth decay, chipping or accidents.

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 visits, eating hard candy and not brushing one’s teeth. When our teeth wear away, break off, or deteriorate due to cavities, we can place a crown to cover, protect or restore the broken or decayed teeth. They are essentially caps that are placed over your teeth and are a sort of last resort for a tooth that has too much damage for a normal filling to fix. Dental crowns can even be used cosmetically to cover up discolored teeth.
