What Are Crowns?
Crowns are a type of tooth-shaped covering, sometimes called a cap. These are placed over the teeth in order to restore the structure of a tooth. If a tooth is already healthy, then the cap can be used to improve the appearance or color. Caps are often used by people who are dealing with discoloring, chipping, cracking, or weak teeth.
Dental crowns in Woodland, CA, will completely cover the visible part of your teeth. This procedure is intended for use on teeth that are otherwise considered healthy but could use an improvement in strengthening or appearance.
Caring For Your Crowns
Your oral hygiene will have a huge impact on how long your crowns will last. You should care for crowns, in the same manner, you would care for your natural teeth. Brushing often and flossing daily will ensure that the crowns are clean and healthy. You should avoid habits such as smoking, chewing ice, biting fingernails, or using your teeth on anything hard. When cared for properly, you can expect your crowns to last between five and fifteen years.
