Whenever you have suffered from the problem of tooth loss or severe tooth decay in central Leeds, it is vital that you repair the damage done; this is not just to maintain the quality of your smile, more importantly, it is key to continuing the future health of your mouth; in these situations, dental crowns are going to help you overcome such problems. With tooth loss, crowns can be fitted to implants or used in conjunction with dental bridges; with tooth decay, they can help to restore the tooth back to its normal size again. In either case, getting your mouth restored will help to maintain the ‘bite’ of your mouth and protect the jaw-joints. The crown that is fitted will depend on the work required of it; strong crowns are generally manufactured from gold or porcelain-over-metal, as these can withstand a lot of stress, especially at the back of the mouth. However, if the damage has occurred at the front of the mouth, a full porcelain crown will suffice, and porcelain will look more natural to the aura you give off when you smile, although gold is sometimes used here too, as it portrays a certain bit of glitz and for some people, makes a statement.
