Porcelain crowns are “caps” that completely surround a tooth that has been seriously damaged or decayed. Crowns replace lost tooth structure and provide strength and protection for the natural tooth.
 
Using updated technology and materials, your Dallas, TX cosmetic dentist creates durable, high-quality restorations that will provide you with many years of use. That’s good to know, but what are some other benefits of choosing crowns?
 
3 Reasons to Choose Porcelain Dental Crowns
 
  • Crowns Restore Function – If you have a damaged tooth, you know that it is a constant reminder that there’s a problem. It hurts to eat many of your favorite foods because other teeth are doing all the work. A high-quality crown relieves undue pain or discomfort by restoring function to the natural tooth.
  • Porcelain Crowns Look Natural - There are many materials that can be used for crowns, but our patients prefer porcelain. This material has the same translucent qualities as natural tooth enamel and can be shaded by your cosmetic dentist to match your unique smile. The result is a restoration that blends in seamlessly with your smile.
  • Crowns Restore Confidence – No one wants to live with damaged teeth. Even if the problem is not obvious, you may feel self-conscious simply because you know something is not right. A well-made porcelain dental crown not only restores function but also improves your appearance and your self-confidence.

Modern cosmetic dentistry has brought about so many innovative and smile-enhancing procedures that it’s sometimes difficult to sort it all out. You’re smile just is not as appealing as it once was and you know that you need some kind of enhancement in addition to your routine oral care. But which procedures will treat your underlying oral problems as well as create the smile you desire? Dallas Cosmetic Dentist has the answers you’re looking for.

Versatile Dental Crowns

Dental crowns ("caps") are one of dentistry's most versatile types of restorations. Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth's new outer surface.

There are several types of crowns but porcelain is the most popular with dentists. They are highly durable and will last many years. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth.

A crown may be used to strengthen broken, fractured teeth, cover large or fractured fillings or for cosmetic enhancement. In addition, all teeth that have root canal treatment should have a crown (cap) placed. This protects the tooth, prevents it from breaking, and restores it to its full function. 

Placing a Dental Crown

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment with the Dallas Cosmetic Dentist will include taking several highly accurate molds (or impressions) used to create a temporary crown as well as your permanent custom crown. We prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Your temporary crown is then placed.

At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure that spacing and bite are accurate. You will receive instructions for care and cleaning before you are sent home with a beautiful, enhanced smile.
