Total Dental Care in Guntersville, AL also offers Porcelain Crowns as a solution for teeth that are chipped, cracked, badly decayed or otherwise weakened.
Porcelain Crowns maintain the aesthetic appearance of teeth by covering the entire visible surface of the tooth, while adding significant reinforcement and protection to the tooth.
After removing all areas of decay, our dentist will take an impression of the tooth to be crowned and send it to a dental laboratory to create the crown. Crowns are typically made of porcelain or gold. Porcelain crowns are extremely natural looking, making them an ideal choice for visible teeth. Gold crowns have a low risk of chipping, and therefore are useful in crowning back teeth.
Teeth that are badly decayed my require extraction, leaving bridges or implants as viable alternative treatments.
