User’s Guide for Tooth Crowns

Dental crowns are the cosmetic dental caps which are placed over teeth to protect them. They are shaped like the tooth and can be made to look like the tooth so that no one knows you have them. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, silver or gold colored tooth covers.
Dental crowns are typically recommended when a patient has a weak tooth on the verge of breaking. Decay can cause this condition in teeth. Accidents that crack the tooth are another reason why a person might need a dental crown.

Handy Tips

No matter what the reason is that you need a crown, here are a few steps you can take to preserve your cosmetic dental work:

  • Avoid eating sticky or chewy food
  • Gently slide floss around the tooth crown
  • Brush regularly

Dental crowns are often recommended when a patient has a weakened tooth or one that could start to break. This can be caused by tooth decay or accidents which crack the tooth. They are an effective cosmetic dentistry treatment which attractively restores the natural-looking appearance of the tooth – particularly true for any teeth in the front of your mouth.
