Why Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are often required when a tooth has:
- Deep dental decay
- Had root canal therapy
- Cracked tooth syndrome
- One or more fractured cusps
A crown or multiple crowns might also be a good choice if you suffer from malocclusion. Your Tampa dentist may recommend several options to improve your bite, including orthodontic treatment and dental crowns.
Dental crowns are also an essential component of dental implants.
Why Choose a Porcelain Crown in Tampa
Dental crowns can be made from various materials, including gold, other metals, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal.
A porcelain crown is ideal for patients with allergies to metals. It’s also an excellent option for patients who are concerned about aesthetics. Porcelain crowns can easily be matched to the shade of your natural teeth. And since there are no metal margins as there are sometimes with porcelain fused to metal crowns, you won’t see any metal or need to worry about metal discoloring your gum tissue.
