In both general and cosmetic dentistry, porcelain crowns are used to offer natural teeth protection and strength. They may be fabricated and placed over a tooth when breakage, infection, or endodontic therapy occurs. Maintaining the dental crown with proper care and attention after placement is the best way to keep it in the smile as long as possible. Regardless, there is always a concern of a dental crown failing.

Dr. Andrew Greenberg of Mouth Carolina Dentistry serves patients in and around the area of Goose Creek, SC and can provide individuals with strong, beautiful porcelain crowns when breakage, trauma, or other problems occur. However, it is up to the patient to maintain their oral health to keep their dental crown for as long as possible.

Porcelain crowns may need to be replaced when they break, fall off, or when patients discover they have developed an area of tooth decay underneath the crown. These situations can occur due to poor oral health or even due to trauma to the mouth. Because dental crowns can actually fail, it is important for patients to take their dental health seriously to keep their dental crowns from becoming a serious concern.

Patients with restorations such as dental crowns are urged to brush and floss their teeth after every meal and maintain their bi-annual recall appointment with Dr. Andrew Greenberg and his staff. These appointments are a great way to be proactive about dental health and maintain a healthy smile longer as the dentist is able to detect problems early enough to address them before they become a serious issue. Dr. Andrew Greenberg checks restorations as well as the natural teeth during these appointments to ensure overall oral health is in check.
