If you pay a visit to your Bootle dentist to remedy a toothache, chances are that you have been rather naughty and not been looking after your teeth properly of late- and the outcome is that you may be suffering from tooth decay. Now this is quite easily remedied but you may require root canal treatment to do it if it is quite bad, which involves firstly clearing out the dead and rotting pulp from within and then drilling out the roots from the tooth. This will at least prolong the life of the tooth by some good 15 years. Then the tooth is sanitized and then filled. However the tooth will be depleted in size and to ensure your jaws close together true, you will need to have a crown fitted to restore your tooth to its hey-day years. Crowns are extremely versatile gems and look as pretty as a normal tooth. They can also be attached to dental implants where tooth loss has taken place. There are three common types around- for strength as well as beauty you can have one made from porcelain-over-metal to take any forces that may go through it and usually these would be placed towards the back of the mouth where a lot of chewing takes place. As with gold crowns, though a lot of people use gold for crowns at the front as well as a bit of a fashion statement. But the prettiest crowns are those made pure porcelain, and though not as strong, look incredibly radiant.
