Dental technology has come so far over the past few years. One of the greatest advancements has been the variety of dental material now used for many types of dental restorations. One of the most popular of these is porcelain. Dental porcelain not only closely resembles the shade of the patient’s natural teeth – it is also remarkably strong and durable. Dr. Castillo is pleased to offer porcelain crowns and bridges to her Boerne, TX, area patients.
Important Information about Crowns
A crown is an artificial tooth that is designed to completely cover a natural tooth. When a patient’s tooth becomes badly decayed, worn down, or broken, using a dental filling to repair the tooth may not be an option – particularly if there isn’t sufficient natural tooth left to hold a filling. In those instances, Dr. Castillo may recommend that a crown be used instead. Crowns may also be used to cover a tooth that has undergone a root canal, providing an added measure of protection for the affected tooth. And crowns are placed on top of dental implants, creating a completely natural-looking tooth replacement that can last a lifetime!
