- No surgical intervention Replacements have their own benefits, the main advantage being that you can restore your partial tooth and also roots, therefore they don’t require surgical intervention.
- Use of new materials that can match your teeth surrounding Porcelain crowns and bridges can be colored to match the surrounding areas where they’ll be installed, this makes their appearance to be more natural than artificial. This is why you’ll need to replace your dental crown if your current crown is made of other materials like gold, metal alloys and acrylic. These crowns will not resemble your natural teeth and surrounding. However, they’re stronger than porcelain, and they’re recommended for back teeth replacement.
- Cost-effective Even with multiple replacements, a crown will cost less than an implant. However, be prepared to replace the crown every 10-15 years due to normal wear and tear.
