Tooth decay is still very rife in London W1 and indeed, throughout the UK and in the end, it will lead to serious damage to the tooth or even total loss. Recovery from problems such as these requires the damage to be repaired or a tooth to be replaced and in both cases, it will require some sort of crown to be fitted. Crowns help not only from an aesthetic point of view, but also sustain the health of your mouth for the future. They generally need to be strong, especially at the back of the mouth, so there are two materials that can cope with this. Gold is very durable and can take a lot of impact and the forces from chewing- as can porcelain-over-metal, which looks more natural in the mouth. Crowns can also be made from pure porcelain, though these will normally be placed at the front of the mouth where less stress goes through them. Whatever you opt for, they are excellent for readdressing the status quo of the mouth; once you have been measured up, they are easy to fit and you can be up and running in just a couple of weeks, in just an hour if you can find a dentist that offers CEREC treatment.
