What Can Crowns Do For Me?
For major dental problems caused by accidents, diseases, or wear and tear, crown and bridgework serve as very reliable solutions. High-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold is used to make these repairs as effective as possible. Stronger porcelain and gold materials are recommended to treat those with the most severe dental problems.
Crowns and bridges can serve as long-term solutions in situations where accidental damage has occurred, where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking.
Many people experience unexplained pain from fillings performed on their back teeth. This pain is usually the cause of hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. With the help of crowns placed on these teeth, the pain will be relieved and full dental function will be restored. Older fillings in front teeth can weaken while causing appearance issues for the patient because of staining or possible chipping. In cases where porcelain veneers are not suitable, porcelain crowns and bridges can do the job. Crowns can also prevent breakage in teeth with root canal fillings.
