Dental crowns are designed to be cemented onto existing teeth or even dental implants to create a secure hold that can drastically improve the look of a damaged tooth and provide additional protection in the future. Dental crowns are known for their durability, and they can easily last multiple decades or potentially for the rest of your life. Even if a tooth is severely damaged, it may be possible to save it through the use of a dental crown.
In several instances, teeth that otherwise would need to be extracted can be saved with dental crowns. It may be possible for a dental crown to hold a damaged tooth together restore its function.
Because dental crowns are designed to cap and conceal broken or damaged teeth, they can even be used in situations where previous restorations are in place. For individuals such as children who are at a high-risk for tooth decay, dental crowns can be a good choice to preserve their smiles.
