Do you have cracked, broken or decaying teeth? If you are like millions

There is good news! If your teeth are chipped, worn down or decayed due
to an injury, gum disease or simply due to aging, there are
cosmetic dental procedures available. These procedures can not only restore the function of your
natural teeth, but that can deliver amazing esthetic results and give
you the beautiful smile that you deserve.

Why You Need a Porcelain or Lava™ Crown
Teeth have a natural tendency to be worn down due to everyday wear and
tear. They can also show signs of decay and breakage when injuries occur.
Fortunately, many of the problems associated with cracked and broken tooth
structures can be restored through the use of crowns. Dental crowns are
used to hold parts of a cracked tooth together. They are also used to
protect a weak tooth from decay and can be used to restore a tooth that
has been worn down or broken.
Over time, metal restorations can leave a dark ridge where the gums recede.
With Lava zirconia, your restoration retains its original beauty for years.
crowns can be crafted out of stainless steel, gold or another alloy, resin, porcelain
fused to metal or porcelain, all-porcelain or ceramic crowns are recognized
as the option of choice. Porcelain crowns provide an excellent, more natural-looking
color than any other type of crown on the market, and they are more appropriate
for people that have metal allergies.

Porcelain crowns can re-establish the original function of a tooth, especially
in situations where decay has destroyed the majority of the original tooth,
or when the person has been injured. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits
of porcelain crowns is that they can not only replicate the original tooth
in function and appearance, but often they can look even better than the original.
