Is a Dental Crown the Answer You Need?

Is a Dental Crown the Answer You Need?

Are you deeply embarrassed by your smile’s noticeable metal dental work? Worse, has it become uncomfortable, or even seem to be failing in recent months? Eventually, dental work generally requires replacement. Fortunately, for patients who do find themselves sin need of a new dental crown, porcelain crowns provide a natural-looking and comfortable alternative to the metal crowns that were once so commonly used. If you want to enjoy a beautiful and restored smile, why not ask your dentist if a porcelain crown could be the right solution for you?

Are You Suffering from Tooth Sensitivity?

Tooth sensitivity and discomfort are among the most common warning signs of dental problems and cavities. That said, discomfort can also come as the result of a failing dental restoration, such as an old filling or crown that has become cracked or otherwise compromised.

If you do suspect your smile is in trouble, or in need of an updated restoration, talk to your dentist about whether a porcelain crown could be ideal.

Restorative Treatment Can Help Protect Your Smile

Porcelain crowns are built to be both natural-looking and long-lasting, allowing for comfort and confidence for many years to come. Perhaps most importantly, dental crowns are designed to seal damaged teeth against further exposure to bacteria, which could otherwise lead to infection.

So, if you are suffering pain because of an undiagnosed dental problem, for instance a cavity, or if you are tired of struggling with an outdated or uncomfortable existing restoration, ask your dentist about having a modern restoration like a crown placed.
