At Hampden Dental Care, we are mindful of the effects of metal on the human body. For example, metal crowns can interact with any amalgam fillings you already have, and your saliva to create oral electro-galvanism, which is essentially an electrical current in your mouth. Although the effect may not be noticeable, it is nevertheless unhealthy for your system, which is why we offer porcelain crowns. These crowns can protect or strengthen a severely damaged tooth, or a tooth that has had a root canal. A crown can restore the function and aesthetic appeal of your smile.
