Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme or in cases of decay, fractures, or old fillings, we can use porcelain crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology.
A major advantage to choosing porcelain crowns is their ability to be created to look exactly like the teeth they are replacing, or an even more aesthetically-pleasing version. Porcelain crowns are available in a wide variety of shades in order to perfectly color-match them to your existing teeth. This will provide the most natural look, so there is little evidence that you have undergone any dental work at all. Because they are the most cosmetically attractive, they are usually used for the front teeth.
All-porcelain crowns are also a much better choice for anyone with a metal allergy. Since they contain no form of metal at all, the wearer should experience no adverse reactions.
Porcelain crowns are generally durable and long lasting. They require no more care than the rest of your teeth, just a simple regimen of regular brushing and flossing. However, if you tend to grind your teeth or clench your jaw during sleep, you may require fitting for a mouth guard to prevent the excess pressure from causing your crown to crack.
These treatments are used for a long lasting correction of major dental problems. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
