Everything You Need To Know about Porcelain Crowns

When you want to improve the appearance or function of your teeth, your three treatment choices are cosmetic dentistry veneers, cosmetic dentistry bonding, or dental crowns. If you want to improve both a tooth’s appearance and function, then dental crowns will usually be the best choice for you.

The Beauty of Porcelain Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over teeth to replace the entire external portion of the tooth to enhance its appearance or function. They’ve become so popular that they are now offered by nearly every affordable dentist Thorndale. While there are different kinds of dental crowns, dentists usually recommend porcelain crowns because they can be colored and shaped to closely match your 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.

The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

While cosmetic dentistry veneers, cosmetic dentistry bonding, and dental crowns are all used to replace the exterior portion of a tooth to enhance its appearance, dentists usually recommend dental crowns because they 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 Thorndale to determine the right treatment for you. The dentist will usually recommend choosing porcelain crowns in the following cases:

  • To restore a tooth’s full function
  • Improve a tooth’s aesthetic appearance
  • 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

The Care of 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 any affordable dentist Thorndale.
