For many patients, the appearance of their teeth is a major worry. For instance, the inability to smile while making a presentation at work can lead you to have anxiety every time you are told to do a public presentation. This can be caused by stained teeth, which dampen your smile.
When you come to Desertview Dental Care, you will receive effective cosmetic dentistry solutions that will improve your dental appearance and, in the process, improve your confidence whether at work or around friends. Porcelain crowns are one of the ways through which you can improve the aesthetics and functionality of your teeth. You can get this treatment solution after you consult with our dentist and you get a thorough examination.
What Exactly Are Porcelain Crowns?
A porcelain crown is applied on top of a natural tooth that is badly damaged or decayed, and the usual dental fillings cannot help. The porcelain crown protects your tooth from further damage and strengthens your tooth, therefore, improving its functionality. Because a porcelain crown resembles your natural tooth, you will be able to have a beautiful smile.
Porcelain crowns can also be used to cover a dental implant for patients undergoing treatment for missing teeth. When they are used on top of an implant patients get a permanent solution that closely resembles their natural teeth. If you want to improve the appearance and functionality of your teeth, our dentists can recommend porcelain crowns because they closely match natural teeth.
