How is a dental crown useful?

A dental crown is a common restoration designed to cap an injured or damaged tooth. At Houston smiledocs, our team may recommend a dental crown for several reasons, which include:

  • Then need to strengthen a tooth that is weak and might fracture
  • The need to cover a damaged or misshaped tooth
  • The need of an anchor for a dental bridge
  • The need to cover a dental implant
  • The need to protect a fractured or weakened tooth
  • The need to cover a severely stained, discolored, or darkened tooth
  • The need to complete a root canal treatment

How long does a crown last?
