Dr. Angela Britt, DMD
Over the course of your lifetime, your natural teeth receive quite a bit of wear and tear. Porcelain crowns are an excellent dental option to restore the form and function of a damaged tooth. Dr. Britt closely replicates the original look of the natural tooth enamel as well as its original strength and resilience to replace the external portion of the tooth. Dental crowns are not limited to replacing missing teeth, but can also be used simply to enhance your overall smile.
Crowns are an ideal dental option for individuals suffering significant tooth decay, in the event of a traumatic accident, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. In addition, dental crowns can be a used for those who grind or clench their teeth and the original structure of the tooth has been compromised.
It’s important to note that the difference in a dental crown and a porcelain veneer is the coverage each provides to the damaged tooth. A crown covers the entire tooth, whereas a veneer only covers the front surface of the tooth and is most often used for smile enhancement.
To determine which dental solution is right for you, please contact Dr. Britt today for your personal consultation.
