Should I Get a Porcelain Crown?

Posted in Crowns

Like many other people, perhaps you are somewhat self-conscious about the appearance of your front teeth when you smile. When upper front teeth are worn, stained, or chipped, they tend to be the focal point of your smile. This fact doubtless makes you shy of showing off your smile. If you’re ready to change the way you feel about your smile, then having a porcelain crown made in your dentist’s office may be the answer for you.

Porcelain Crowns: Enhancing the Beauty of Your Smile

A porcelain crown is designed to match the natural color and texture of the majority of your surrounding teeth. This ensures that your new tooth looks like it belongs there. Others shouldn’t be able to tell just from looking at you that you have a crown. Being made of porcelain, the crown won’t have any dark metal parts that can show through.

When your dentist fashions a porcelain crown for you, the old tooth is trimmed of its rough parts and slimmed down to fit the crown. In this way, the unsightly fractured edge or stained color or rough texture is now hidden by a smooth and natural-looking crown.

Porcelain Crowns: Built to Last

A porcelain crown is a step up from the quick-fix of bonding. Dental bonding quickly and noninvasively closes up gaps and smooths edges. A crown, however, will give your front teeth far more strength and durability, giving you peace of mind.

By improving the appearance of your smile with a porcelain crown, you may discover a newfound confidence that affects your social life and job opportunities. Make an appointment with your dentist today to learn more about how a porcelain crown is right for you.
