Can Dental Crowns Protect Your Teeth?

Posted .

Can dental crowns protect your teeth? Although each crown can only be fitted for a single tooth at a time, they are extremely effective at keeping teeth safe from danger. They work by covering up the entire tooth down to the gum line by directly bonding to all sides of a tooth, often by removing a small amount of tooth enamel.

Dental crowns are useful for an assortment of oral ailments, including covering and protecting cracked or damaged teeth, as well as concealing unsightly or heavily discolored teeth that cannot be easily fixed with teeth whiteners. Dental crowns can even be installed to help protect previous dental treatments such as dental bridges, dental implants, cavity fillings, and even root canals.

Dental crowns are known for their superior defense they provide for teeth, but are also extremely durable and can continue functioning properly for many years. Typically, an average dental crown will last over 2 decades, but it is possible for it to last an entire lifetime. If for any reason the crown falls off, it can be easily repaired or replaced by your dentist.
