Restorative dental work involves addressing any issues that affect a tooth’s health, as well as care to make sure that tooth is protected. Porcelain dental crowns provide lasting support, but they also offer cosmetic benefits that you can look forward to. Your Santa Monica, CA dentist can have a custom, lifelike crown made for you when you need to restore a tooth due to damage, or from a cavity. In some cases, it can be necessary to put a crown on a tooth that is naturally undersized. Because your restoration will match the color, and texture, of surrounding enamel, it can be difficult for people to tell it apart from your natural teeth!
Having Your Porcelain Dental Crown Placed
A crown needs to be secure enough to stay in position when you bite and chew food. It also needs to be comfortable enough to avoid any issues with discomfort after placement. Your dentist will take precise measurements of your tooth, and perform preparatory work to make sure it fits. Once it is determined that your custom crown will serve effectively, it can be put in position.
What Can I Do About A Tooth That Is Unsightly, But Still In Good Health?
Some cosmetic dental problems can call for some kind of restoration, but it may seem that a crown – which covers all of your tooth above the gum line – is excessive. In these cases, porcelain veneers may be all that it takes to ensure that your smile concerns are addressed. Porcelain veneers cover the front of teeth, and hide minor damages, discoloration, and size issues. While they are noticeably slim, they are still able to stay in good condition for many years!
