If you have a bad cavity, or a tooth that has eroded, chipped, cracked or broken, then what’s left of your tooth probably won’t last too much longer. The affected tooth’s protective enamel layer has probably been compromised, and the remaining healthy tooth structure may become vulnerable, weaken further, and be exposed to even more damage and decay. This may result in oral health complications, such as oral infection, pain and sensitivity.
Restore & strengthen your damaged teeth with dental crowns
A porcelain dental crown is one of the best ways to restore a severely damaged tooth, and have it looking and functioning like a natural tooth in no time.
How do crowns work? Dental crowns are custom-made tooth caps that are fitted over and bonded to your damaged tooth to restore its shape & size. They are usually made of porcelain, and are modelled to resemble your tooth in its original form.
Crowns aren’t just cosmetic; they will also strengthen, protect and extend the life of your tooth. Your dentist can even enhance a crown’s shape to match the opposing tooth to improve your bite and chewing function.
Porcelain crowns blend in with your natural teeth
Porcelain dental crowns subtly mimic the feel and look of natural teeth. Once colour-matched, they are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They are also very durable, stain resistant, and low-maintenance if you maintain a normal oral care and hygiene routine.
Restore your ability to bite, chew and drink
If you have a tooth that is severely damaged, not only does it look bad, it may also feel sensitive or painful from the pressure of biting & chewing, and/or exposure to hot or cold food & beverages. Once your tooth has been fully restored, you’ll be able to eat and drink normally.
Are porcelain crowns suitable for you?
To find out if your severely damaged or decayed teeth are suitable for a dental restorative treatment via porcelain crowns, you will need to pop in for a consultation and assessment. If you don’t have enough healthy natural tooth structure left to enable a ceramic crown treatment, there are other tooth restoration options available that may suit your situation.
