Have your teeth been seriously damaged or broken due to an oral accident or injury? If you do have any teeth that have been damaged, it is vital to have them repaired as soon as possible. If left untreated, bacteria can seep into a tooth and damage the pulp. The pulp is the life source of a tooth that contains the nerve endings, connective tissue, and blood vessels. If the pulp becomes infected, the tooth may die and need to be extracted. Protect damaged or broken teeth with dental crown therapies.
Dental crown therapies rely on using specialized materials to cap or cover problematic teeth down to the gumline for a solid hold that prevents future damage from occurring. In addition, dental crowns can be fully customized to ensure your tooth receives the look, shape, color, and rotation that is most desirable for your smile.
Dental crowns can also be used to cover previous dental treatments such as root canals, dental implants, and dental bridges. Dental crowns can last over two decades, but with the proper care, can last a lifetime. If a dental crown is knocked out, you can cover the area with a cotton swab dabbed in clove oil and visit your dentist to have it reset or replaced.
