What can dental crowns do for your oral health?
Dental crown restorations are specifically designed to save and cover the entirety of an exposed tooth, protecting it from extensive damage. At the same time, a porcelain dental crown dramatically improves the appearance of the damaged tooth, restoring the natural beauty of your smile.
While providing maximum protection for the tooth, dental crowns are capable of increasing the structural efficacy of your mouth, making it easier to chew foods comfortably.
Dental crowns can accomplish the following functions:
- Repair broken teeth
- Protect the inside of your tooth, called the tooth pulp, from decaying
