Porcelain Crowns And Bridges May Be Needed To Protect A Weak Tooth

Are you looking to reinvigorate and rejuvenate a smile that is looking tired or needs enhancement, are missing or broken teeth leaving you feeling down and low on confidence, then crowns and bridges are a brilliant way to combat this.

A porcelain crown is more commonly used on broken chipped or discoloured teeth. If you feel that any of your teeth suffer from any of this then a porcelain crown could be the solution for you. A crown is a restoration that is placed over the affected tooth to amend its shape, size or strength. They are not only used for aesthetically pleasing reasons, they are also used to improve the functionality of the teeth.

You can choose between metal bonded crowns and ceramic crowns. Both are commonly used and provide the same type of solution. With the metal crown, it is completely covered in ceramic so that no metal can be seen through and it looks completely like a normal tooth would. Ceramic gives the same results just that they are fully ceramic with no metal centre.

A bridge is commonly used to solve the problem of missing teeth effectively and safely. A bridge is a synthetic tooth that anchors around your remaining teeth, to place a new one where the missing tooth once was. Bridgework is a long-term and stable solution. It can also help to prevent problems such a shifting and drifting of the surrounding teeth, which could cause more complex problems.

If you feel that porcelain crowns or bridgework could be a safe and long-term solution for you and your dental issues, then do not hesitate in contacting your local dentist for a consultation on how either of these treatments could be beneficial to you.
