When a tooth is badly broken down due to a large filling or advanced decay, it is in danger of cracking. The best option is often to place a crown on the tooth. In the past crowns needed a metal foundation to be strong enough to resist breaking in use. However, these teeth are opaque and fake looking.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
There is now advanced bonding technology that allows the porcelain crown to be bonded directly to the tooth. When a porcelain crown is done by an expert cosmetic dentist like our doctors the tooth will retain its translucency and color variations that make the crown more natural looking. This is the most beautiful choice for visible teeth. The durability of porcelain fused to metal crowns is sometimes preferred for the back teeth.
