Porcelain crowns can protect a tooth with a dislodged filling or teeth that are starting to decay. A porcelain crown looks like a natural tooth and is indistinguishable when grouped with them. A single crown can protect a chipped tooth, decaying tooth or replace one that’s missing. Porcelain crowns can last a couple of decades in good condition. Patients only need to visit the office twice. The preparatory visit is where the dentist examines the mouth to determine the best size for crowns. Once the measurements are made, the info is sent to a lab so a custom fitted crown can be constructed. Visit Gocenturydental.com for more details.
