When Are Dental Crowns Are Option?
Dental crowns are used in many situations and we are excited because we can now expedite the process from start to finish and get it done within a couple of hours!
They are commonly used where there is an irreparable defect or decay to one or more teeth. In some cases, they can even be used to cover up existing dental work such as bridges or veneers. They offer the best form of restorative treatment for teeth that cannot be restored in any other way, while also preserving and maintaining the natural tooth structure. Some of the benefits of crowns include:
Crowns restore and maintain the natural tooth structure
They are a great option for replacing missing teeth
You can eat hard foods
Dental crowns are an affordable and invisible treatment
Should I Consider This Procedure?
Dental crowns generally have good success rates but it’s important to know what will happen when you get them before making your decision whether to go ahead with this type of procedure. It should also be noted that they only last about as long as your natural teeth would if they weren’t missing, so you might prepare yourself for the eventual replacement of your crowns at some point in the future.
What Are Dental Crown Made Out Of?
Dental crowns are usually formed from porcelain or metal, although they do sometimes use a combination of both. Porcelain dental crowns can be used to cover up existing veneer work or even to change the color of your teeth. Porcelain crowns are also usually more durable than their metal counterparts and can be used in a wider range of situations.
