Learn More About the Advantages of Using Porcelain Crowns in the Smile
- Posted on: May 15 2019
Dental crowns are a common restoration used in dental practices today. It is also an extremely versatile and natural-looking solution for a variety of smile concerns. At the practice of Drs. Nancy E. Gill and Dallas D. Kenson, patients in the area are welcome to book an appointment to learn all about these everyday restorations.
How do crowns work?
There are many situations that can develop that may make a patient consider the benefits of placing a dental crown. Essentially, the crown works as a “cap” that is fused to a tooth to cover all visible sides that are above the gum line. In some cases, the crown is placed purely for cosmetic reasons, such as covering a permanently stained tooth. Other times, crowns are used to offer an extra layer of protection and strength to a tooth that may have become traumatized in one way or another. The crown is made of ceramic, which closely mimics the appearance of the natural tooth enamel and is custom-fabricated to blend in with the smile. These restorations are versatile, strong, and affordable for many of our patients.
