Even though under normal circumstances teeth are very strong, sometimes something will happen and a tooth will become cracked. This could happen in an accident. People have also been known to crack a tooth while eating nuts and some while prying things open with their teeth (something you should never do!). In this state, the tooth is subject to further damage. Part of it could break off completely; bacteria can enter the cracked space causing cavities to form. However, placing a crown over the damaged tooth will save it and preserve your beautiful smile.
If you have any cracked or otherwise damaged teeth, why not consult with one of the experienced dentists at Dame Street Dental and see if a crown is in your future. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for you or a family member. Protect your teeth and your smile.
