If you have weak or brittle teeth or suffer from tooth decay, a porcelain crown may be the perfect fit for you. Porcelain crowns enable patients to maintain their natural tooth while replacing the outside component of the tooth. Dr. LeSuer and Dr. Dodaro are able to use crowns to help preserve the teeth while allowing you to feel and look like you have a natural tooth.
The benefits of porcelain
Porcelain is a substance that is beautiful yet strong. It mimics your natural teeth by reflecting light the same way tooth enamel does. It is also worth mentioning that Drs of Smiles have recently added zirconia dental crowns to their list of services. This type of crown is tooth colored and derived from an artificial diamond color. It is strong yet provides the look of a porcelain crown.
What can a porcelain crown do for me?
A porcelain crown will allow you to maintain your original tooth. A crown is used to hide extensive areas of tooth decay, help and protect brittle teeth, act as a prosthetic tooth for tooth implants, replace teeth that have been damaged by metal fillings, and can be placed following a root canal.
