What Are Porcelain Crowns?
A dental crown is a meticulously crafted restoration that is placed over a vulnerable tooth to protect and enhance its strength and structure. Crowns can be used to repair chipped, cracked, broken, or decayed teeth that require extensive restoration. Highly versatile, they can serve to restore a single tooth, be fabricated to top dental implants with a natural-looking tooth replacement, complete a root canal procedure, or act as replacement teeth for a dental bridge. At True Dentistry, we utilize state-of-the-art technology to design our beautiful porcelain restorations.
What Are The Benefits of Porcelain Crowns?
Porcelain crowns from our practice can offer the following advantages:
- Beautiful, natural-looking results
- Healthy tooth material is saved with conservative treatment
- Customized fit is achieved using precise digital dental scans
- The color and dimensions of your natural tooth are precisely matched
- Restorations are fabricated from durable, stain-resistant, metal-free ceramic material
Who Is a Candidate for Porcelain Crowns?
Typically, candidates for dental crowns will have missing or severely damaged teeth, often as a result of decay, injury, or prolonged gum disease. Those with cavities that are too large to be treated with a filling can also benefit from a crown. Furthermore, the ideal candidate for porcelain crowns is typically one who is in reasonably good overall health and who has dental concerns that have not reached a point of severity in which the affected tooth is beyond repair.
Because crowns are utilized to treat both cosmetic and functional concerns, those who wish to correct less severe chips, discoloration, or other aesthetic issues may be better suited for porcelain veneers. Our dentists can determine the best procedure for your needs during an initial consultation.
How Long Do Porcelain Crowns Last?
When placed by a highly qualified cosmetic dentist, porcelain crowns are extremely durable and can often last at least a decade with the proper care. They are more likely to last many years into the future if you practice excellent oral hygiene and exercise caution when biting down on hard foods. That said, in order to keep your crowns functioning optimally, be sure to brush and floss regularly and attend your biannual routine exams.
What Can I Expect During the Porcelain Crown Procedure?
Your dentist 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 have been removed, your dentist will ensure the tooth is fully prepared to accommodate a crown. They will then take a digital impression and enter the data into our dental imaging software to custom-design your new crown. Next, the design will serve as the blueprint to craft your new crown from precisely color-matched porcelain material. During your next visit, your dentist will place the crown over your tooth to check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Once your dentist is satisfied with the fit, he or she will cement the crown in place to create a long-lasting bond.
