Modern dentistry can restore your tooth even if there is almost nothing left of it. There is no need to remove the tooth, you can just put the crown. A crown is a design that is put on the rest of the tooth and executes its functions.
Nowadays, modern crowns are indistinguishable from natural teeth. A dental crown recovers a tooth’s form, strength, and size. It encases the visual part of your tooth or dental implant.
The longevity of the crown is also important. The life of a crown can last 10-15 years and even more.
The difference between dental crowns is the material. As a rule, the strength and appearance of the crown depend on the material. Dentist Glendale, Dr. Sahakyan is a well know expert in dental implant restorations. If you need expert advice please contact us or call us.
