Why Porcelain Dental Crowns Are a Great Solution for a Chipped or Broken Tooth

There is nothing quite like seeing the beaming smile of someone you love. Whether it is your parent, partner, young child, or best friend, a smile can change your whole day – or your whole life.

Unfortunately, many of us are too embarrassed or ashamed to show our smile off to the people we love. Chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth can affect the appearance of your smile and your self-esteem. Tragically, some people with these dental problems stop smiling altogether in an attempt to hide their tooth problems.

Having a great smile can boost your self-esteem, and resolving chipped, cracked, yellowed or brown teeth can improve your self-image and cause your smile to radiate brighter than ever before. Porcelain dental crowns are a simple and cost-effective solution to these common dental problems that ensure you have a perfect and healthy smile for years to come.

Solving the Smile Dilemma

Tooth problems and cosmetic imperfections come in many forms. You may have stained teeth from years of coffee drinking, or teeth that are yellowed, brown, or simply are uneven in their coloration.

Others suffer from chips or cracks in their teeth that are unsightly when smiling and may lead to decay and possible tooth loss. Still, others may have teeth that appear uneven or to be of different sizes, which decreases the overall aesthetic appeal of the mouth and smile.

Porcelain dental crowns are the ideal treatment for all these aesthetic problems. Essentially, they are small ceramic porcelain crowns or caps that cover the outer surface of a tooth. Not only does this protect the natural tooth from damage or further harm, but it also greatly enhances the aesthetic appeal of the teeth by covering any discoloration, cracks, or other visually noticeable damage.

One of the reasons why porcelain dental crowns are so popular is because they are a completely pain-free way to restore the visual appeal of your teeth and smile. Compared to similar treatments, they are relatively affordable and do not take a great deal of time to apply.

How Porcelain Dental Crowns Work

A dentist who offers a dental crowns service can customize your crown to fit the exact size, shape, and color of your teeth. This ensures a natural feel and appearance that will be comfortable in your mouth. Permanent crowns are based on a mold of your teeth that is taken by a qualified dentist.

After the mold is sent to the lab, it will take a week or two before your permanent crown is custom-built and ready to be applied. In the interim, you can have temporary crowns applied to your teeth. Once your permanent crowns are available, they will be permanently secured to your teeth by a dentist.

These crowns are especially popular for their natural appearance, aesthetic appeal, and ease of application. They are extremely durable and have a strength that is equivalent or greater to that of your natural teeth. They blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth to give you the smile you have always wanted.
