Fluoride is an important mineral that aids in the process of strengthening and maintaining the integrity of the enamel coating on the teeth. Enamel is constantly battling against plaque, bacteria and sugars in the mouth that cause decay. Fluoride is applied to the teeth to help make the enamel more resistant to this decay.
A dental crown is a fixed prosthetic device used to cover or "cap" a damaged tooth. In addition to strengthening a damaged tooth, they can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape, alignment and bite.
