Dental Crowns - Burlington
A dental crown is a restoration that covers (caps) a tooth, restoring is to its natural shape and size while serving to increase the strength and improve overall appearance. Dental Crowns are often required when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth, or the physical state of a tooth has weakened beyond the point atwhich a simple composite filling would suffice. Dental Crowns are also used to seal cracks, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, restore already fractured teeth, and even cover misshapen or discolored teeth.
If you have a dental crown, it is important to remember to brush at least twice a day and floss to strengthen gums and clean potential materials from the spaces between teeth that could promote plaque to form causing decay or gum disease.
