Is It Time to Get a Porcelain Dental Crown?
Posted on January 27th, 2017
When was the last time you were able to enjoy a meal, a snack, much less your morning cup of coffee or even your dessert, without suffering from dental discomfort? Heightened sensitivity can really put a damper on once enjoyable activities, like splitting an ice cream cone with your kids or having after hours drinks with coworkers. Fortunately, modern restorative dentistry makes it possible to address many causes of discomfort, with beautiful and effective results. So if you are ready to push past your pesky discomfort, why not talk to your dentist about how a porcelain crown could help?
Are You Sick of Suffering from Discomfort?
Though many people are tempted to ignore sensitivity or discomfort, these are often warning signs of acid erosion or other tooth damage. Prompt restorative treatment is the best way to prevent the issue from worsening, and to improve the overall comfort of your smile.
In the case of progressed decay, like a deep cavity, or even damage like a chip or crack, a crown will likely be recommended, because it is designed to look natural while providing long-lasting and comfortable protection against bacteria that could lead to infection.
Do You Want to Update an Old Restoration?
Porcelain dental crowns, in particular, are prized because they can be custom crafted to look nearly seamless within a patient’s smile. This allows for confidence when smiling, and because porcelain conducts less heat than metal, porcelain crowns are often considered more comfortable as well.
In fact, if you have grown embarrassed by an outdated restoration, now is a great time to talk with your dentist about whether a porcelain crown could help to update your smile!
