Porcelain crowns are a common choice when it comes to repairing teeth. They cover and protect the entire visible part of the tooth, and this makes them a great option for teeth that have experienced severe damage or decay. Our cosmetic dentist in Northridge may recommend a porcelain crown if you have a tooth with a large filling, a tooth that has fractured or broken or a tooth that has had a root canal treatment.
The benefits of porcelain crown include:
1. A natural-looking appearance
2. Completely customizable color, shape and texture
3. Strength and durability
5. Safe and biocompatible
8. Easy maintenance
9. Improved function
Once the crown is in place, you can use the restored tooth just as you always have. You can brush and floss it as though it is a natural tooth, and it will look so real that you may even forget you have it. By saving the natural tooth using a porcelain crown, you can also be confident that your jawbone will stay stronger and healthier.
