Your teeth are an important part of your life, and when one of your teeth is damaged, it can take a toll on your daily life. To help protect your teeth, your dentist may recommend the use of a dental crown. Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration that goes over your existing tooth to help strengthen and protect it. Dental crowns can be used on teeth that have cracked or chipped, or teeth that have a large dental filling and have the potential to be damaged.
Dental crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of your teeth by providing a uniform appearance to damaged or discolored teeth. Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth to ensure that the dental crown fits properly in your mouth and will also provide you with care instructions to ensure that your dental crown lasts for many years.
