If you’re researching dental crowns, it’s probably because your smile needs some important restorations.
Old dental work may no longer be protecting your teeth like it should, and if you’ve chipped or broken teeth, or discoloration after root canal therapy maybe it’s just time for a brighter, newer you.
Dental crowns and bridges are the most natural-looking way to restore teeth that are chipped, broken, discolored or missing.
Dental crowns are made of porcelain and zirconia that is bonded to your existing tooth structure. They can ether go on top of titanium dental implant and abutment, or a root canal treated tooth. When a cavity is too large for a filling, dentist may recommend a dental crown as well.
Crowns are placed on individual teeth to restore damage or as part of a smile makeover. Dental bridges replace one or more missing teeth, and consist of one or more crowns that are anchored to the teeth on either side of the tooth gap.
If you care for your dental crowns like they’re natural teeth – with daily brushing and flossing, and six-monthly checkups and teeth cleanings visits to your dentist – they can last up to a decade or longer. Affordable Dentistry dental crowns have 2 years warranty if its correctly maintained with dental check ups and dental cleanings.
