Restore those damaged teeth with Dental Crowns in Houston, Texas!
What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a cover or a cap that is placed over a tooth that has been damaged or decayed. Over time, teeth can wear down, break, or become disfigured to the point where a simple filling can't adequately repair it. In these cases, a crown will save and even add strength to your damaged tooth.
Why should I get a dental crown?
Crowns help protect weak teeth from breaking and can be used to hold together parts of a cracked tooth. If you have a broken or worn down tooth, a crown can help restore your tooth back to its normal look and function. Crowns can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left. And finally, crowns are used for cosmetic purposes – for instance, cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth.
What are the benefits of crowns?
For the most part, crowns help restore the functionality of your mouth by helping you maintain your normal chewing function. They also have some financial benefits. Crowns can help save you money down the road by preventing more expensive and invasive treatment like root canals, extractions, or dental implants. Lastly, it helps with appearance.
