The importance of looking after our teeth is something that is taught to many of us from a young age. Brushing twice a day, flossing regularly, limiting sugar, and visiting the dentist for check-ups are all crucial elements for a healthy smile, yet often, despite following all of the guidance given to us, our teeth develop problems.
Decay and minor damage are two of the most common problems treated at Vero Dental Spa. Both can cause a number of symptoms including sensitivity and pain. By identifying and treating the cause as quickly as possible, you can limit the extent of the dental work that will be required and prevent the symptoms from worsening.
Porcelain crowns are one of the principle treatments for this type of damage, and our experienced team is pleased to be able to offer an exemplary standard of care to our patients requiring a porcelain crown.
What are porcelain crowns?
Porcelain crowns are a highly popular, restorative treatment choice for mild to moderately decayed or damaged teeth. Each crown is provided in the shape of a natural tooth, and sits over the top of the affected tooth, encasing it fully inside. This hides any damage, and in the case of teeth that are broken or cracked, will hold the tooth together.
While crowns have been around a long time, it is only in recent years that an increasing number of patients have begun choosing a porcelain variety of this popular treatment. This is because, unlike metal, porcelain can be created in a variety of different shades, enabling patients to pick a color that closely resembles their natural teeth. Therefore, when the crown is put in place, it blends perfectly with the rest of the patient’s smile, offering the ultimate discretion.
