Dental Problems Solved By Porcelain Crowns
Porcelain crowns solve a variety of dental problems. They conserve a damaged tooth and provide a new, clean tooth surface. You may choose to have a porcelain crown if you have:
Porcelain crowns are usually necessary when a large amount of tooth tissue has broken off, cracked or decayed, and there is inadequate tooth structure left to support a filling.
Porcelain crowns are also used to enhance a smile’s appearance, but staining and discoloration are not usually the main reasons for getting them. If stained or discoloration are your only dental concerns, dental solutions such as porcelain veneers or teeth whitening may be a better choice. Dr. Alegre in South Florida will be able to decide what procedure will work best for you.
Porcelain crowns have an increased longevity because they are bonded to the natural tooth. Virtually undetectable to others, you can eat, laugh, smile, and enjoy life once again with no pain or fear of revealing your dental work.
