Dental crowns have been kicking around central Leeds and plying their trade for decades, helping to restore the smiles of the masses. Crowns are used to repair your teeth after injury, damaged cause by tooth decay or even to replace a tooth that has been lost. Such restoration is essential in order to keep your bite true and prevent further complications in the future; they will also help to maintain your vanity whenever you open your mouth. Once you have been repaired and prepared, you will be measured up for your crown and once it has been made, it is a simple procedure to set it into place. You do have a choice of materials from which you can have your crown made from. Pure porcelain are the most popular as they tend to fit in perfectly with the natural look of the mouth; for strength, you can also go for porcelain-over-metal. The other popular material is gold; as well as having the ‘wow’ factor it too is very strong and can take anything that is thrown at it. Aside from all of this though, crowns are an essential part of dentistry and if you need one, you need one, as we are talking about the health of your oral future here.
