Longevity of Dental Crowns
Your teeth are incredibly strong. They are the strongest substance in your body, and they can stand up to a significant amount of daily wear and tear. Even though they are strong, the teeth can still be faced with physical damage or decay that can compromise their strength and the health of your mouth.
