In the olden days, crowns were only possible in one material, metal. While metal is a functional repair, there is no getting away from the fact that metal teeth are simply not attractive. Not to mention, some patients have allergies to metal, which can cause painful irritations. Now, there are two main types of crowns, ceramic crowns and porcelain crowns.
However, ceramic crowns are not as durable as porcelain crowns. On the other hand, porcelain crowns offer all the benefit of a crown without compromising on aesthetics.
The Initial Consultation for Porcelain Crowns
During your consultation, we will ask for information on your general health and wellbeing, as well as taking into account your dental history. If you have any dental anxieties, they will also be addressed during this consultation.
A thorough examination of your teeth and mouth will be undertaken, so that we can determine the extent of the work that needs to be carried out. We will also request that x-rays are taken. All of these steps will help us build a clear picture of your oral health.
