If you have teeth that are extremely vulnerable to tooth decay and continually end up being damaged by harmful acids and dental erosion, a cap may be needed to place on top of teeth. If each individual tooth that is vulnerable requires a cap, look no further than dental crowns, which can be customized to contour to your natural smile and give your teeth the look and protection they deserve.
Dental crowns are extremely popular because they not only can be customized to give your tooth the look you want, but they can protect the tooth from further damage. Dental crowns are extremely popular for weak or broken teeth that are highly susceptible to dental damage. They can even be used for teeth that are in need of a dental filling, but not enough to tooth remains, to hold the tooth and filling together.
If an oral accident or injury has occurred and a tooth has broken into bits, a dental crown may be used to bind together the broken bits and restore the tooth once more. Dental crowns can even be used to help hold dental bridges, dental implants, root canals, and other tooth restorations in place. Not only will they provide an extremely durable hold, but they add protection to your smile. Dental crowns are even popular with children and are safe enough to use at a young age if children are at a high risk for tooth decay.
