Crowns May Be the Answer
to Weaker Teeth
As we age, our teeth become weaker.
Wear and tear is found in a number of ways. Cracks develop in the crystals of teeth. Over time, these cracks enlarge, and join up with other cracks. A piece of tooth can unexpectedly break off.
A tooth undergoing a crown procedure is trimmed so as to provide space for the crown to fit into the bite. Usually a temporary crown is made to be worn while the final crown is made in a laboratory.
Once fitted, the crown may be expected to provide many years of useful service.
