Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing your metal filling or dental crown? In fact, are you sick of worrying that your restoration is all other people will see when they look at you, too? Metal fillings and crowns can actually cause a great deal of insecurity, but they can pose other issues as well. So, if you are unhappy with an existing restoration, why not talk to your dentist about how a modern restoration like a porcelain crown could help?
Reasons to Consider a New Restoration
Though the appearance of metal fillings and crowns might be the most obvious concern, it is not the only reason to consider updating an existing restoration. Metal also conducts high levels of heat, which means many patients experience discomfort when they eat or drink particularly hot or cold items. Those with metal allergies or sensitivities can also find them problematic.
After many years, restorations can also begin to fail, leaving teeth vulnerable to infection.
Fortunately, composite resin, or tooth-colored fillings, and porcelain crowns conduct less heat than metal. They are also natural-looking, and long-lasting, allowing for years of comfortable and confidence-inducing restorations.
Enjoy Long-lasting Results
Whether you are in need of a new restoration, or ready to talk to a restorative dentist about updating an existing one, don’t delay an appointment. Prompt restorative treatment is the key to protecting fragile and damaged teeth. This is true with undiagnosed issues, like cavities, as well as in the case of compromised dental work, such as a chipped crown or a broken filling.
