Everything that is done behind the closed doors of a dental surgery in central Leeds, other than keeping your teeth and gums free of decay, is aimed at ensuring that your jaws bite together correctly- your occlusion, and when you suffer from tooth decay or tooth loss, it is important to rebuild or replace the tooth in order to keep your bite true. To do this, you will need to have a crown fitted and it will also keep your smile looking vibrant as well. Now if you have the money and the inclination, you can choose whatever material you like to have your crown made from, but for the rest of us, there are three ways you can go with this. Porcelain looks totally natural alongside the rest of your teeth and there are two types to choose from, full porcelain or porcelain-over-metal. Both look wonderful, although the latter is designed for strength and would be normally placed in the mouth which undergoes a lot of biting and chewing forces. The other option is to go for gold; again, very strong but also, people seem to see it as a status symbol and like to show it of, which is why you will see it on the front teeth of some people. All do the job however and ensure that your mouth remains healthy.
