What is involved with dental implants
Most patients are surprised to learn that most dental procedures have a limited lifespan. Fillings, crowns and other fixes do not typically last forever. That is why dental implants have become so popular. As more people ask their dentist about implants, it is important to understand the process step by step in order to assess the viability for each patient.

Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

What’s Involved Getting Porcelain Crowns

Crowns are a common restoration provided by a cosmetic dentist or a general practice dentist. Your dentist may recommend that you get a porcelain crown if one of your front teeth is cracked, badly chipped or has stains that cannot be whitened. A porcelain crown also functions as a restoration after you have had a large filling or root canal therapy. Porcelain crowns are similar to veneers because they are both customized to the shape, color and size of your natural teeth. However, veneers are strictly cosmetic. The process of getting a porcelain crown is simple and pain-free.
