Delighting in the Dental Crown in London SE1

18 / 12 / 2012

Tooth decay can do a lot of damage to your teeth in London SE1: it can infect the pulp and the roots of your teeth and if allowed to continue, can lead to you losing your tooth altogether and in both cases, a dental crown may come into the equation at some point. If the tooth has become badly infected, a root canal needs to be carried out and once the tooth is filled, a crown may be needed in order to give the tooth back its original strength and shape. In the case of tooth loss, a crown would be use in a dental bridge, or on a dental implant. Then, you have the choice of what crown to pick and there are three common types, each of which however depends on the job it is meant to do in the mouth. Incisors do not have to take heavy workloads and so, the crown can be made entirely from porcelain, or if you love the ‘zing’ factor, you can go for gold. Gold is also strong and along with a porcelain-over-metal crown, these are the more likely types of crowns that will be used at the back of the mouth where a lot of biting and chewing is done. In all cases, crowns are useful to help keep the balance of the mouth’s occlusion healthy and true, otherwise, your jaws may suffer from wear and tear in the future.
