Dental problems can arise from a variety of different causes including injuries, decay, or overuse. Sometimes a tooth is damaged beyond what a simple filling can fix. In these cases a porcelain crown is often the best option to restore the cosmetics appearance and function of the damaged tooth.
Porcelain crowns are a better option for people who want a restoration that looks more natural. Porcelain crowns are not fused to metal and because of this with a porcelain crown you will not develop an unsightly darker line at the gum line. Porcelain crowns also look more like natural teeth because teeth have a subtle translucency at the tip of the tooth that porcelain crowns share. Porcelain crowns are also very strong and low maintenance.
If you find that you need a crown, or are not happy with the appearance of your existing crown, call us today to make an appointment and ask Dr. Petruk if a porcelain crown is a good option for you.
