What to Expect During a Porcelain Dental Restoration Appointment
Before performing any work on your dental restoration, our dentist will complete a thorough exam to determine what may have caused your dental restoration to break. Sometimes, the porcelain breaks just from regular wear-and-tear or because you experienced an injury. Other times, it could be because decay or other dental problems, such as gum disease, may have weakened the dental restoration.
Our dentists will discuss their findings with you. If there are any problems that need to be addressed, such as cavities or gum disease, we will create a treatment plan that focuses on treating these issues and then proceeds to the restoration phase.
If no problems are detected and the dental restoration broke due to normal wear-and-tear or because of an injury, we may not need to do any additional dental work and we could just work with you to restore your porcelain dental restoration.
