If you have a tooth that has been damaged through decay or injury, or even require an implant to replace a tooth that is no longer there, in the city of Leeds, it could be time be time consider getting a porcelain crown fitted too. For all of these problems can lead to further health issues arising in the mouth, such as gum disease and further tooth decay. Porcelain crowns have a very natural sheen and make and excellent replacement at around £550. There are two types of porcelain crown available on the market. The all porcelain crown is the more obvious choice for teeth at the front of the mouth, where there is far less pressure placed on them through chewing or heavy biting. However if a tooth is to be replaced or rebuilt in the back of the mouth, where there is a lot more pressure applied during eating, it may be more wiser to opt for the porcelain-fused-over-metal crown that is more durable and resistant to pressure. The treatment time for fitting the actual crown is around 2 weeks, or in one sitting if you choose CEREC treatment. (Of course, treatments to get the tooth ready for a crown can prolong the overall time the process takes). Both types of crowns are durable and long lasting if treated with care, anything up to 15 years.
