Strengthen broken down teeth with porcelain crowns from London City dentists
If you have a tooth which is broken down or damaged you can rectify it by have a porcelain crown fitted by your London City dentist. Smiling is very important in social occasions and you shouldn’t feel like you can’t do it because you have a tooth which is unsightly and damaged. Porcelain crowns are discreet and durable and compliment your existing teeth.
Damaged or broken down teeth do not function properly and can make eating and drinking more problematic. Porcelain crowns can be fitted if there is not enough the tooth to rebuild from. If you have a number of problematic cavities on a tooth, porcelain crowns can protect them so you will not experience sensitivity while eating.
They can also be used to cover dull or stained teeth but teeth whitening procedures might be preferable here as they are less invasive than having a crown fitted. Sometimes your dentist might have to shave off a quantity of your existing tooth in order for the crown to be fitted properly. In the past metal was used in crowns but they could produce dark lines against the gum. Porcelain crowns avoid that problem and are very natural looking and discreet.
Your dentist will need to take moulds and impressions of your teeth using dental putty although increasing numbers of practices are using digital x-rays and 3D computer technology in the fitting of porcelain crowns. You might need to wear a temporary crown when the permanent one is being constructed but modern technology sometimes means that you no longer have to endure this wait and you can be fitted with your porcelain crown in just one visit to your dentist.
