If you have had the misfortune of falling foul to the damage done by tooth decay, or in fact, lost a tooth completely, you can over the problem with a dental crown. These have been used for decades in Chelmsford and are the ideal ways to rid you of the rot- just ask the Advance dental clinic based there. There are two basic choices of crown you can have fitted, one being made from porcelain (or porcelain-over-metal), the other being made from gold. Pure porcelain crowns are the natural avenue to go down because it is the closest material you can find to match that of the enamel covering your teeth. Though it is okay for restoration to teeth at the front of your mouth, you’ll need its more durable brother, porcelain-over-metal to copes with the stresses at the rear of your mouth- but both give a beautiful result. Gold is equally as good for both roles because it is strong anyway, but it will also add a bit of razzmatazz to your smile as well. Aside from all of this of course is the fact that having a crown fitted, for whatever reason, will help you re-address the balance of your oral health that is threatened by any damage done in your mouth.
