Did we recommend a dental crown during your last visit and you have yet to schedule your appointment? We know that needing a recommended dental treatment can be a little unnerving, but postponing a treatment can leave serious complications with your oral health. A dental crown is an extremely common dental treatment, as common as a dental filling. Even if you do not currently have a dental crown, there is a good chance you or a family member may need this treatment in the future. Today, we want to take a few minutes to explain more about this common treatment. Read on to learn more about dental crowns.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown may seem like an intimidating treatment, but it is an extremely common procedure that is performed daily. While a dental crown can be used for a variety of reasons, it is always used to restore the function of the teeth. A dental crown is a tooth-colored cap that is placed over a damaged, decayed, or cracked tooth to protect it from further damage. A dental crown is also commonly used to complete certain treatments, such as a dental implant or root canal.
