What Are Dental Crowns?
When a tooth gets damaged, it can lose its natural shape or size which can impact the look of your smile as well as how your teeth fit together when you bite. Dentals crowns fit over your tooth like a cap, helping to restore the tooth to its original state. Dental crowns add additional strength where your tooth may be lacking due to the deterioration of the tooth.
What Are Dental Crowns Used For?
Dental crowns are a popular treatment and have many uses, including:
Dental crowns are commonly used after a root canal to protect and strengthen the tooth. A root canal is required before a dental crown if your dentist identifies signs of tooth decay, damage to the pulp of your tooth or risk of infection is likely.
A temporary crown is fitted on your first visit to then be replaced with a permanent, durable crown that is cemented to your natural tooth. Crowns last for 5-15 years on average, with the lifespan depending on your oral habits such as teeth grinding or biting fingernails, these things can reduce the lifespan of your crown.
