3 Oral Health Tips To Protect A Porcelain Crown
Dental crowns are a general dentistry tool used to cap a natural tooth that has suffered substantial trauma- or decay-related damage. Crowns are available in full metal, which looks far from natural, or full porcelain, which looks natural but isn't as strong as full metal. There are also metal-backed porcelain crowns, which have the strength of the metal backing but the natural yet somewhat weaker porcelain surface material. If you have decided to get either a full porcelain or metal-backed porcelain crown, there are a few oral health tips that can help protect and extend the lifespan of your new crown.
