Getting a fine Dental Crown in Sunbury
Sunbury, like all other places, has its own fair share of dental problems, some are fairly trivial, others more complicated. But the good thing about modern dentistry is that is has all the answers to your problems should they crop up. Tooth decay is a particularly nasty little problem: if caught early, it can be treated with a filling, but if it infects the inside the tooth, it can do a lot of damage and the tooth will need rebuilding. To do this, you will need to have a dental crown fitted to restore both shape and size to the tooth. Crowns come in many shapes and sizes, but when it comes to what they are made from, there are two choices you have, porcelain or gold. Porcelain looks more natural and mirrors the tooth’s enamel; a full porcelain crown can be used where the workload is light, but porcelain-over-metal is far stronger and can take a lot more stress, hence, the choice between the two is governed by where the damage has been done in the mouth. Gold is strong anyway, so it can be used anywhere in the mouth and some see it as a bit of a status symbol to have a gold crown fitted. For more information, contact Mulberry dental care.
