If you have lost a tooth/teeth or your teeth have been significantly worn down then a porcelain crown could be the perfect treatment solution for you.
A dental crown is a laboratory-engineered restoration, which improves the function and appearance of a damaged tooth by covering all or part of the affected area.
Porcelain crowns are extremely strong and durable, lasting 7 to 15 years with good care. They function in exactly the same way as a natural tooth would, providing an excellent replacement which blends in with your natural tooth colour giving an aesthetically pleasing result.
Dental crowns can be fitted in a number of different ways.
- The most secure option is to use a dental implant to retain the porcelain crown.
- Alternatively the crown can be cemented to the prepared tooth using tooth dental cement
These options largely depend on the condition of the affected tooth/teeth. If you are unsure which is the best option for you then do not hesitate to arrange a free consultation with one of our dentists to discuss the treatments and have all of your questions answered.
