There are several reasons that a patient may want (or even need) a porcelain dental crown. Some of these are:
· Protecting a weak tooth that has been damaged by tooth decay
· Protecting a cracked tooth
· Holding a dental bridge in place
· Covering any discoloration on the tooth
· And more!
Porcelain crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” that go over the tooth that is being worked on. If a patient doesn’t like the way their tooth or teeth look and feel, then crowns can cover these imperfections. Sometimes, it’s more beneficial than you may think! Previously mentioned, covering a weak or cracked tooth can protect that area from any other kind of potential damage.
Similar to crowns, dental veneers are well known for covering up any visual imperfections that a patient may want to hide. They are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials that cover up the front of the tooth to improve its appearance. Celebrities all over the world are known for receiving this procedure! They’re highly resistant to stains and only need to be taken care of like the rest of your smile with simply brushing and flossing every day.
