private and NHS patients in Manchester in the United Kingdom. He is

Drabu advises that dental crowns are used as a restorative procedure
and is also effective to restore bone tissue. Instead of extracting a
tooth, which could possibly be saved, the crown is placed over the
tooth. When a tooth is extracted the bone tissue starts to
deteriorate from the minute the tooth is removed, which can lead to
other complications over time.

and cracks. It is also used to help preserve any damaged tooth and
ensure that the patient keeps their adult or permanent teeth for as
long as possible.
