Porcelain crowns can be created to look a lot like a natural tooth for those who a tooth or teeth with extensive fractures, severely filled or decayed. Porcelain crowns are able to provide a durable, strong, and resilient replacement that works well for many years to come as well for patients who are suffering from a damaged tooth. Not only can porcelain crowns be used to help patients who have a missing tooth, or a damaged tooth, they can also be used for patients who are looking to improve the overall appearance of their smile also.
Why You Should Choose Porcelain Crowns
There are always several factors that lead patients to choosing porcelain crowns over other dental cosmetic treatments. When the exterior of your tooth is damaged, severely filled or decayed Dr. Santos can give you back your natural tooth’s appearance by placing a crown over the damaged tooth. Damages could come from tooth decay, physical damage, or other symptoms that destroyed the outer enamel and dentine. Crowns are also used in cases where patients have clenched or grinded their teeth so badly that the structure of their teeth is now compromised.
Many patients enjoy the benefits of porcelain crowns because not only will they be able to function as their regular teeth would have, they also may give them a major improvement in the overall appearance of their teeth now. Porcelain crowns are extremely popular in cosmetic dentistry because they are able to cover the front of your teeth better because they are thicker than a veneer.
The porcelain crowns would be secured to your mouth using a light sensitive resin that would be placed between the crown and your original tooth and then cured with a special light.
