Dental Crowns are a type of restoration which covers or "caps" a tooth, restoring it to its original shape and size, as well as serving to increase the strength and improve overall appearance. Crowns are used to cover the tooth when there is a large cavity or a root canal on the tooth. In case the tooth is damaged but not lost, the crown can it stability and prevent further damage. Dental crowns are a long-lasting solution that can last for up to 10 years, provided meticulous oral hygiene is maintained. Just like with natural teeth brushing, flossing and regular professional cleaning is essential.
