With regular cleanings and dental exams, it is highly likely that we will detect any issues with a patient’s teeth early and can fix them right away. Unfortunately, sometimes a patient will delay treatment for something they perceive as minor or will go an extended period of time without a cleaning, either of which can exacerbate an existing problem. Other times, accidents happen and teeth can get cracked or chipped. Existing fillings can break, causing damage to the tooth, not to mention pain and discomfort. In these cases, a simple filling very often just won’t do.
Luckily, when these things do happen, we have options, one of them being a Porcelain Crown.
