1. You’re Suffering from Discomfort
One of the most common warning signs that the smile is in need of restorative treatment is heightened sensitivity or bothersome discomfort. When teeth have become fragile by decay or damaged, for instance through trauma, then restorative action is often needed.
Don’t ignore discomfort, then, as the longer you delay a dental visit, the more likely the issue is to worsen, potentially to the point of a painful tooth infection.
2. You Have a Dated Restoration
Another reason to consider a modern dental crown is if you are unhappy or worried about an existing restoration. Old metal fillings and crowns can begin to fail after many years, putting teeth at risk of exposure to bacteria that could lead to infection. Modern crowns can help by providing long-lasting yet beautiful protection against bacteria, as well as general wear.
If you want a seamless solution, simply talk to your dentist about how porcelain can be used to create natural-looking dental crowns.
