Dental crowns can be used for cosmetic or restorative purposes or a combination of the two. These tooth-shaped caps are designed to cover weak, decayed, or damaged teeth to reinforce their structure so they can continue to be used. Crowning a fragile tooth protects it from decay and future breakage. If one or more of your teeth have been compromised due to decay or dental injury, contact Maegan Elam, DDS & Associates in Bedford, Texas, to see if they can be restored through dental crown treatment.
Fixing damaged teeth is essential to restoring your oral health. A cracked or broken tooth is more prone to infection, leading to even more severe dental issues.
