Everyone wants a beautiful smile, but broken teeth, chipped enamel, crooked teeth, and gaps between the teeth can taint a smile. Fortunately, now anyone can get a dazzling smile with porcelain crowns. Since they are made to look like your original teeth, these caps cover the damaged or chipped teeth while also strengthening them and enhancing the alignment of your smile. 

What are Porcelain Crowns? 

Crowns are fixed prosthetics cemented to the natural teeth to cover damage or deformity. We make them by taking your teeth' impression and then customize a cap to fit your teeth. Porcelain crowns or ceramic crowns are made of dental-grade porcelain. We bond them to your teeth to restore their size, shape, strength, form, and function. We use them for restoring your front teeth, where aesthetics is the prime concern, and in cases where teeth cannot be repaired with dental fillings or other treatments. 

When Do You Need Porcelain Crowns? 

  • If you have injured your teeth recently

  • If you want to reshape your crooked teeth

  • If you want an anchor for your bridge

  • If you want to reshape your crooked teeth

  • To protect your teeth after root canal treatment

Metal Vs. Porcelain Crown 

Metal crowns are made from nickel-chromium, cobalt-chromium, and other metal alloys. They are durable and do not suffer much wear and tear. However, they are not a practical option for front teeth. Hence, we use porcelain crowns where aesthetics is the prime concern. Porcelain crowns mimic the natural teeth in their appearance. They provide strength to your teeth and protect them from further damage. Most importantly, they are a great option for people who suffer from metal allergies.

 

Porcelain Crown Procedure 

  • After physically examining your teeth, we check the internal cracks via x-rays. We remove the decayed portion (if any).

  • We determine whether or not you require root canal treatment based on the condition of your teeth. 

  • We make an impression of your teeth and send it to the lab for the fabrication of your customized porcelain crown. 

  • Meanwhile, we place a temporary crown on your teeth using non-permanent cement. 

  • We also take your bite to check the alignment of your teeth and ensure that you can chew and bite comfortably. 

Aftercare 

Getting cavities or decay underneath a dental crown is something not unheard of. Hence, we recommend brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day and limiting your consumption of red wine and coffee. We also recommend regular dental check-ups.
