Did you know one of the most common dental services nowadays is crowns? If you’re curious how metal-free porcelain crowns can protect your teeth, this post will uncover all you need to know.


They Resist Things That Can Damage Teeth


A dental crown can protect your teeth by keeping them safe from irritants. Most dental problems are caused by food particles, saliva, and acids. Since metal-free porcelain crowns fully encase your teeth, these substances will not be able to damage the tooth or teeth in question. 


They Protect Your Teeth From Bite Forces


A crown protects your teeth from the forces involved in biting and chewing. This is especially important if the teeth are already damaged. You can think of a crown as a reinforcement that restores your teeth’s structural integrity and function. This allows you to chew and speak as if your teeth had never been damaged. In addition, crowns also protect your teeth from further damage, which reduces the risk of additional tooth loss and damage. 


They Hold Teeth Together Neatly


When teeth are protected by caps, any fragmented bits are held in place by the dental crown. This will prevent your teeth from breaking into smaller pieces over time. If you’re looking for a cost-effective way to fix teeth that have broken down into lots of pieces, a dental crown is the best viable option. Fortunately, the process is seamless and relatively inexpensive. This is a great way to avoid losing your teeth and undergoing more expensive and complicated teeth restoration processes.


The process of getting dental crowns is rather simple. First, we encourage you to set up an appointment with our office. Once you’ve selected a day and time that works best for you, you will receive an initial evaluation and get your teeth prepared for crowns. Teeth preparation may involve the removal of some of the enamel to ensure that the crown holds tightly to the remaining teeth. Get in touch with us today to find out more about dental crowns. We would love to sit down and discuss your options with you.
