If your teeth are damaged, you’re probably wondering what your options are. Keeping your jawbone stimulated is important for your oral health, so our goal will always be to save your tooth. If a tooth can be saved, dental crowns provide a way to strengthen it while giving you extra protection!
A dental crown is a cap for your teeth, whether it’s over your original tooth or a dental implant. This natural-looking restoration will provide protection, look completely natural, and allow you to chew regularly again. You won’t even be able to tell the difference! Here are the typical occurrences of when a dental crown is used:
