Did you know that your tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body? The thin layer of enamel on your teeth helps protect your smile from the ravages of bacteria or injury. Unfortunately, our teeth often become damaged due to trauma or advanced tooth decay. In order to return your tooth to full function and appearance, we may recommend a dental crown. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, provide a fun quiz to discuss the benefits of porcelain crowns.

Porcelain Crown Quiz Answer Key
