Porcelain crowns can restore the natural form, function, and appearance of teeth that have been badly damaged. Whether the health of your tooth has been compromised by trauma or extensive decay, Las Vegas cosmetic dentist Joseph G. Willardsen, DDS can create a custom porcelain crown within approximately an hour to beautifully rebuild and strengthen your tooth. The E4D CAD/CAM system allows Dr. Willardsen to precisely design and mill restorations that offer a superior fit and high-quality esthetics.
What Are The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns?
Porcelain crowns can be used to repair chipped, cracked, broken, or decayed teeth that require extensive restoration. They can also be fabricated to top dental implants with a natural-looking tooth replacement. At True Dentistry, we utilize an advanced E4D CAD/CAM system that allows us to craft beautiful porcelain restorations in just one office-visit.
Porcelain crowns from our practice can offer the following advantages:
- Beautiful, natural-looking results
- Completion of both dental treatment and tooth restoration in one visit
- Healthy tooth material is saved with conservative treatment
- Customized fit is achieved using digital 3D dental scans
- The color and dimensions of your natural tooth are precisely matched
- Restorations are fabricated from durable, stain-resistant, metal-free ceramic material
- Temporary crowns are not needed
What Can I Expect During the Porcelain Crown Procedure?
Dr. Willardsen will first treat any disease or decay present in the affected tooth, completing a root canal procedure if necessary. Once all damage, disease, and decay has been removed, he will ensure the tooth is fully prepared to accommodate a crown. Using the E4D CAD/CAM system, he will scan the affected tooth and upload the data into the computer where he will custom design your new crown. Next, the 3D design is sent to the milling station to craft your new crown from precisely color-matched porcelain material. From there, Dr. Willardsen will place the crown over your tooth to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Once he is satisfied with the fit, he will cement the crown in place to create a long-lasting bond.
