Do you have chipped teeth? Do you have gaps from missing teeth? If you answered “yes” to either question, dental crowns may be an answer. Crowns are used to restore a cracked or broken tooth or to cover a dental implant. With an office in Woodbridge, ON, Dr. Vageesh Sabharwal of Sabharwal Dental Group offers lustrous porcelain crowns.
Benefits of porcelain crowns
Both functionally and aesthetically speaking, there are numerous benefits to porcelain crowns:
- Achieving a natural appearance. Porcelain crowns are custom created to match the surrounding teeth in color, shape, and size. This makes the crown blend in seamlessly with the smile.
- Feeling natural. Porcelain crowns are durable and comfortable, so not only will your friends be unaware of your dental restoration, but also you won’t notice it either. Because the crown is designed specifically for you, it will take on the role of your natural tooth in appearance and function.
- Restoring functionality to your teeth. Often, patients who need a crown may have changed the way they eat or speak due to their broken or missing teeth. With the placement of a porcelain crown, the mouth can function normally once again. The patient’s bite is restored with a durable replacement so he or she can return to eating a normal diet.
If you have a broken tooth, Dr. Sabharwal assesses the tooth and surrounding structure. The tooth is prepared as necessary to remove any damage while saving healthy structure. Impressions are taken so a lab can create the custom crown. If desired, a temporary restoration can be worn until the permanent crown is ready. The permanent restoration is placed later.
