See If Porcelain Crowns Can Soothe and Improve Your Smile

If you’re troubled by your teeth, your three choices for treatment are cosmetic dentistry veneers, cosmetic dentistry bonding, and dental crowns. To improve both the appearance and function of a tooth, you will find dental crowns are typically the ideal treatment for you.

What Are Porcelain Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are tiny caps that cover natural teeth to improve their appearance or function. They have become so popular that they are now offered by nearly every affordable dentist Abington. While there are different kinds of dental crowns, dentists usually recommend porcelain crowns because they can be colored and shaped to closely match your other natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are custom-created in a dental lab and secured onto the front of teeth. Once they are properly positioned by your dentist, they are hardened with a special curing light to fully and securely restore your teeth.

When Porcelain Crowns Are Right for You

Your three primary options to enhance your smile are cosmetic dentistry veneers cosmetic dentistry bonding, and porcelain dental crowns. They all can be used to improve the look of a tooth, but dental crowns can also improve a tooth’s function and strength. To determine which is best for you, you will first need to schedule a consultation with an affordable dentist Abington to determine the right treatment for you. The dentist will usually recommend choosing porcelain crowns in the following cases:

  • To restore a tooth’s original function
  • Enhancing a smile’s aesthetic appeal
  • To create a natural appearance.
  • When tooth decay has destroyed most of a tooth
  • When a traumatic event or accident has caused irreparable damage
  • To cover severe enamel erosion
  • When a person grinds or clenches their teeth so badly that it destroys their natural tooth

How To Maintain Porcelain Crowns

It’s surprisingly simple to keep porcelain crowns looking good and staying strong for a very long time. They require the same dental hygiene as natural teeth, such as brushing at least twice a day, daily flossing, and regular check-ups and cleanings from an affordable dentist Abington.
