Dental Crowns Can Improve Your Smile
Dental crowns are essentially tooth covers that cap a damaged tooth, restoring its size, shape, and function. For example, if you have an old, large filling in your back molar, over time this filling will begin to pull away from the tooth; it can also cause the tooth to develop a fracture. When too much of the tooth has been prepared to make room for such a large filling, there isn’t enough of the tooth structure left to replace the filling. Instead, a dental crown fits over the tooth and restores its function. Dental crowns are made to blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth, so it looks completely natural.
