Discover Why Porcelain Crowns Make People Smile

Are you uncomfortable with the appearance or function of your teeth? Today, your choices to improve them are cosmetic dentistry veneers, cosmetic dentistry bonding, and dental crowns. When both a tooth’s appearance and function are in need of help, then dental crowns are the choice to make.

The Basics of Porcelain Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are thin dental caps that get bonded over a tooth to enhance its aesthetic appearance or function. They’ve become so popular that they are now offered by nearly every affordable dentist East Detroit. While there are different kinds of dental crowns, dentists usually recommend porcelain crowns because they can be colored and shaped to closely match your other natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are custom-created in a dental lab and secured onto the front of teeth. When they are properly positioned, they are set with a special curing light to fully and securely restore your teeth.

The Value of Porcelain Crowns

While cosmetic dentistry veneers, cosmetic dentistry bonding, and dental crowns are all used to replace the exterior portion of a tooth to enhance its appearance, dental crowns are best in cases where you want to restore a tooth’s appearance and its complete function. The only way to know which is best for you is to schedule an appointment with an affordable dentist East Detroit. The dentist will usually recommend choosing porcelain crowns in the following cases:

  • To restore a tooth’s original function
  • Enhancing a smile’s aesthetic appeal
  • To create a natural appearance
  • When tooth decay has destroyed most of a tooth
  • When a traumatic event or accident has caused irreparable damage
  • To cover severe enamel erosion
  • When a person grinds or clenches their teeth so badly that it destroys their natural tooth

The Maintenance of Porcelain Crowns

It’s surprisingly simple to keep porcelain crowns look good and staying strong for a very long time. They require the same dental hygiene as natural teeth, such as brushing at least twice a day, daily flossing, and regular check-ups and cleanings from any affordable dentist East Detroit.
