Surbiton dentist offers Porcelain Crowns for Damaged Tooth
One of the ways to repair or rebuild damaged tooth is by porcelain crowns. In addition covering what was left of the tooth, crowns can also work to protect it from further damage.
Crowns, which are also referred to as caps, can give back the natural shape as well as contour to the damaged tooth. They can be made from three materials, namely:
• Precious metal such as Gold and Palladium
• Porcelain bonded to a metal
• Porcelain and a composite resin
• Pure or All-Porcelain
In Surbiton, porcelain crowns are increasingly becoming popular because of their resemblance to natural teeth. For this reason, they are often used for restorations involving the front teeth.
Basically, the entire procedure will take at least two visits:
The first visit will involve the preparation of the damaged tooth and taking of impressions. The impressions are then sent to a laboratory where the porcelain crowns are fabricated by expert ceramists ensuring perfect restoration. At this time, a temporary crown will be fitted until the porcelain crown is ready.
On the second visit, your Surbiton dentist will finally fit the porcelain crown. For the first few days, you will be conscious of the porcelain crown but in no time at all, you will barely notice its presence. Your Surbiton dentist will make sure that the crown is fitted perfectly and if needed, make necessary adjustments.
With porcelain crowns that look natural and indistinguishable from the other teeth, you can enjoy peace of mind.
