Your teeth are the strongest substance in your entire body. They are even stronger than your bones. While they are incredibly strong, they are not indestructible. Facial trauma, biting down on something too hard, or severe tooth decay can leave a tooth weak and vulnerable. The tooth is at risk for splitting, shattering, or developing a painful, dangerous infection. At Harry Albers DDS, we can restore damaged teeth, allowing them to remain in your mouth, with dental crowns.
What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a restoration used to treat a damaged tooth. It is a small, cap-like restoration that is designed to cover the entire surface of a damaged tooth and encasing it. A crown is often recommended for more significant damage that cannot be treated with more conservative methods like cosmetic bonding, veneers, or fillings. A crown protects a damaged tooth and prevents infections. It also restores strength to a damaged tooth, allowing it to continue functioning normally.
