Do you have a damaged tooth? Is there a tooth you’d like to improve the appearance of? If so, there are several options that can help restore your pearly whites. For instance, you probably know that teeth whitening could improve the color of a tooth. However, did you know that a crown could be used to improve the functionality and appearance of your pearly whites?

You see, crowns are especially useful for their ability to protect your teeth. In fact, crowns are usually placed after you’ve had root canal therapy. Crowns are also regularly used to cover cavities that can’t be treated with a filling. Doing so can actually prevent future tooth decay. Our team could also place a crown to cover a tooth that’s suffered trauma.

Dental crowns can also be used to correct a number of other issues. If you have uneven, jagged, or stained teeth, placing a crown could resolve the issue. You see, crowns are custom made to blend with your teeth naturally. In other words, if you aren’t happy with the appearance of a tooth, a crown could help.

However, once you have a crown placed, you should remember to care for it well. Crowns are extremely durable, but they can break and crack. To preserve your crowns for as long as possible, please remember to brush and floss well. You should also avoid biting on nails, metal, and ice.
