Why Dental Crowns are Wonderful
Dental Crowns (also called Dental Caps) have been getting better and better since they were first introduced in the early 1900s.
They’ve become one of the best tools available for tooth restoration. Dental Crowns fit right over an existing, or part of, an existing tooth. They look great, feel great and are cost effective.
We can’t say enough about Dental Crowns, so we’ll just give you the short list:
Here are 10 Reasons We Love Dental Crowns
1. Dental Crowns last 10 years or more. With proper care, they can last a lifetime.
2. Because Dental Crowns go over an existing tooth, there is no bone loss, as there would be if the tooth was removed.
3. Dental Crowns require only the usual care that natural teeth require.
4. Dental Crowns look great. Like great artists, a great dentist and laboratory technician can fashion a tooth so that it looks and feels like a natural tooth. No one but you knows you have a crown.
5. Dental Crowns protect the underlying tooth from further decay.
6.Dental Crowns are the simplest way to restore a broken tooth.
7. Dental Crowns can save a tooth with a crack or a large filling, and prevent it from further deterioration.
8. If a Dental Crown becomes loose, it can be easily be cemented back into place.
9. Dental Crowns can be used to help children who are at high risk for tooth decay and have difficulty keeping up with oral hygiene.
10. Dental Crowns come in a variety of materials…from porcelain to gold…and, no matter what material is used, crowns have both strength and beauty.
