Dental crowns plays an important role in supporting and restoring the normal structure and appearance of damaged teeth. If any of your front teeth has suffered severe damage, broken or extensively decayed, a dental crown repair is usually recommended. However, it is possible that you can crown your front tooth just for aesthetic improvement.
Over time, your teeth can get damaged. This can happen for a variety of reasons, like tooth decay, injuries or just use over time. Your teeth can lose their shape or size. Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that can be placed over your tooth.
The tooth is prepared by removing the cracked, fractured, or damaged natural tooth to make a healthy base for the crown. Because the natural tooth is removed, dental crowns for front teeth are considered a permanent dental restoration, as the remaining natural tooth must always be covered.
