Many patients are aware that having a crown installed in your mouth is very helpful. Some people aren't aware that having a dental crown can improve and keep your teeth healthy.
Benefits of Having A Crown
First of all, dental crowns strengthen your teeth. The crown is like a cap that covers the entire surface of a tooth, providing strength and durability to an otherwise weak tooth. It can hold a severely damaged tooth together, and can also close gaps that appear between your teeth. Crowns help protect a tooth from decay that can damage it. A dental crown helps a tooth to stay in place. Placement can also help with tooth replacement because it anchors dental bridges where they are supposed to stay, or they can restore a single tooth dental implant.
A crown can also be used to stabilize a tooth after getting a root canal. A crown can bring damaged teeth back to their original sizes and shapes. It can improve the look of a misshapen tooth. Crowns can be used to repair crookedness, chips, cracks, fractures, and more. They can correct discoloration and prevent stains on your teeth. Crowns give a person a full functioning mouth, which allows them to eat and speak without problems.
A crown will make your teeth healthy, but you have to put in work too. Make sure to brush your teeth multiple times a day and floss. You can still get cavities and other problems with a crown. It's also important to keep seeing your dentist every six months. You can function normally with a crown, so there's no need to worry about anything. Having a crown in your mouth is a great thing, and it will make your teeth very healthy.
