A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that can be placed over a tooth in order to restore it to its normal size. A crown is made to be put over the entire part of the tooth that is visible above the gum.
Dental crowns could be needed to restore a broken tooth, to protect a weak tooth from decay or from breaking and to regulate the appearance of the teeth. Most crowns can last for up to 10 years before they need any type of replacement, but they may even last longer.
If you or a loved one has had significant damage done to a tooth, a dental crown may be just what you need. Contact the Austin dental crown dentist of Lance Loveless, D.D.S of BridgeView Dental today by calling 512-347-8299 today.
