Dental Crowns - Mississauga
A dental crown is a type of restoration that covers or "caps" a tooth, restoring the tooth to its original shape and size, as well as serving to increase the strength and improve overall appearance. Dental crowns are needed when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth, or the physical state of the tooth has broken down beyond the point of which a composite filling would still be a viable option. Dental crowns may also be employed to seal cracks within a tooth, attach a bridge, protect weaker teeth from fracturing, restore already damaged teeth, or to cover misshapen or discolored teeth. Dental crowns are a very versatile option in terms of overall oral health.
If you already have one or more crowns, it is vital to brush at least twice a day, and floss to strengthen gums and remove potential materials that may cause plaque to form in the spaces between teeth, causing decay or gum disease.
