A fractured or cracked tooth, untreated decay, or an old, large filling may leave teeth susceptible to further damage and cavities that can cause painful toothaches. To protect the remaining tooth structure as well as the pulp of the tooth, the best solution can be to fully cover such teeth with porcelain crowns. A crown can offer a tooth reinforcement, rendering it more resistant to injury and healthier in the bite. Besides, it restores the beauty of your smile.
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are made of durable, tooth-coloured porcelain and function as a shell that fits securely over the full teeth, which has been sized down.
In the past, crowns were often noticeable because the restoration often did not precisely match the tooth’s original colour. Dark lines that formed near the gums also made crowns more obvious. Today, porcelain crowns offer a magnificent natural appearance. The newest treatment involves using computer cut jackets in Zirconia, metal-free crowns which recreate the translucency of a natural tooth.
All-porcelain ceramic crowns are one of the most aesthetically pleasing options for repairing damaged teeth.
Placing porcelain crowns will take two visits to the practice. During the first visit the decayed tooth material will be removed and the tooth is reshape to accept the crown. A temporary crown, made of composite resin, is placed while the permanent crown is being prepared. When your porcelain crowns are ready to be placed, you will again visit the practice.
