You may benefit from porcelain crowns if you have broken, cracked or severely worn teeth, have an existing crown that is unpleasant or in need of replacement, need to correct bite issues, want to prevent breakage or damage in teeth that have decay or have undergone root canal therapy, have significant staining or discoloration, or want a more beautiful smile.
Porcelain Crowns are used to add strength and beauty to teeth that are affected by decay, damage and wear. While there are many options for materials used in dental crowns, Dr. O'Brien chooses porcelain crowns because of their superior esthetics and long tern durability.
With today's modern dentistry porcelain crowns look and feel just like natural teeth. Made of durable dental porcelain, they are stain resistant and easy to care for. If the proper care is given, they can last for years and years. Whether it is just one tooth or several teeth, porcelain crowns can provide a dramatic improvement in the overall appearance of your smile.
