Dentist in Miami Beach
Over time, teeth begin to weaken. This leaves them more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks, or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth. At South Beach Dentistry, our crowns are made out of porcelain to keep the aesthetic look for our patients. If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist that can perform cosmetic dental crowns, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sandor Valls.
Dental crowns can:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking
- Hold a cracked tooth together
- Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
- Cover a severely discolored tooth
- Restore a broken or severely worn tooth
Also, dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants or as an anchor for a bridge.
What are the benefits and demerits of using the crowns?
The most impressive aspect of using this crown is that it is aesthetically pleasing. You would not get any allergic reaction wearing this.
One of the best things about wearing the crown is that its alignment and form correction is straightforward. This procedure is ideal for people having a small mouth and who wants natural-looking teeth.
The demerits of using the product would include the fact that the preparation time of it is very long. It also involves some complicated procedures. The whole process is a bit costly, and it is less durable compared to other methods.
Crowns are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown for the last many years.

Regular visit to the dentist, at least once in six months
In the absence of proper care, following are some of the complications that can occur with your crown:
