While some dental work is purely focused on making your smile more attractive, there are procedures your dentist will perform to restore – and protect – a vulnerable tooth. Placing a dental crown will address a problem with a tooth that has been damaged by a cavity, or by physical harm. A porcelain crown can give you a life-like restoration that has value for your smile, and the tooth in need of support. With your crown in place, you should be able to bite and chew food comfortably – many people will be able to count on this support for many years. If your dentist is concerned about the amount of pressure the crown will take, a porcelain fused to metal crown can offer better durability. The overall longevity of your new crown will vary tremendously based on the maintenance you provide.
Durability Is Especially Important For Restorations On Your Back Teeth
Your premolars and molars have a tough task, which is why the durability of a restoration on these teeth is particularly important. Porcelain fused to metal crowns can provide more support than porcelain crowns. With expert care, it is possible to make sure your crown is a good match for neighboring teeth.

If you need to undergo treatment for a problem tooth, or if you are pursuing any other kind of treatment for your smile, a second opinion appointment offers important advantages. Your dentist can help you make sure your proposed care will lead to the benefits you are after. The right dental work will lead to great changes for your smile, while making sure your dental work does not leave your oral health vulnerable.
