Natural Looking Porcelain Dental Crowns
Modern dentistry offers more options than ever to restore and maintain optimal dental health. Porcelain crowns, veneers and overlay crowns are highly esthetic, long lasting, strong enough even for bruxers, non-abrasive and bio-compatible. Dr. DeSantis works with her patients to achieve comprehensive care to return even the most damaged mouths to optimal health.
There are many reasons why porcelain crowns, veneers and other conservative restorations are used. Over years of wear and tear, teeth may become dangerously weakened by very large fillings, cracks or root canals. Molars, in particular, are the most at risk for cracks. Conservative restorations provide the protection needed to prevent further damage to those teeth.
With time, smiles may become marred by large, stained, multiple fillings that look unsightly, by a darkened front tooth, trauma, and old veneers or crowns that are getting decay around margins. Dr. DeSantis and her master lab technician expertly create beautiful, natural looking restorations to bring back your beautiful smile.
Porcelain restorations not only look very natural, but also feel like a natural tooth. Patients most often forget that they even have crowns. These restorations are secure, long lasting, and very comfortable.
Porcelain crowns and veneers can restore a single tooth, multiple teeth and even a whole mouth. Porcelain crowns can be used on top of implants. Porcelain bridges fill in a missing tooth when an implant option is not available or desired.
With today’s modern materials and techniques, don’t have to settle for a damaged mouth or unsightly smile. You don’t have to end up with a root canal or an extraction due to an untreated cracked or root canaled tooth. Porcelain crowns and veneers are conservative, long lasting and beautiful.
