Change, it’s a part of life. And when it comes to your teeth, no matter how hard you try, things can still change—and not for the better. In fact, those once pearly whites can start literally falling apart as previously stable, sturdy enamel has gradually eroded to a hollow shell. While that sounds scary, not all is lost. Crowns are a great option to keeping them intact. Reach out to Alexandria Center of Dentistry. Visit our Dental office in Franconia as soon as possible to extend your smile’s longevity.
Crowns can be useful for a myriad of reasons. They can be smile-saving solutions for any of the following: supporting or covering a tooth with a large filling, hiding a discolored or extremely deformed tooth, and stabilizing dental bridges. Got kids? It’s no secret that they’re not (usually) disciplined when it comes to sticking to an oral hygiene routine—which is known for leading to early tooth decay. Keep in mind, not all crowns are one and the same. Different types are tailor-made to meet specific dental health needs. Stainless steel crowns, for instance, are a fantastic option to serve as a placeholder for a (later inserted) permanent crown. Now you might be not so excited about the prospect of a shiny metal tooth. No problem. In that case, you’ll want to explore the wonders of a porcelain-fused-to-metal alternative which is known for its unrivaled subterfuge, blending in with the rest of your pearly white smile. For more information, don’t hesitate to visit our dental office in Franconia. We at the Alexandria Center of Dentistry eagerly await your arrival.
All you have to do is schedule an appointment. Via phone or e-mail, whichever is most comfortable for you. After that, you’ll be well on your way to a brand new horizon.
