If a tooth suffers from significant damage or decay, saving it may still be possible. Dental crowns from our experienced dentists, Dr. Coleman and Dr. John, can preserve most of the natural tooth structure while restoring the strength and beauty of your smile. At our practice, we offer a variety of options, including all-ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), and gold, which will be customized to suit your unique needs and preferences. Bridges can be used in cases where more than one tooth is lost in a row. Additionally, porcelain dental crowns are utilized with dental implants to give you a sturdy, natural-looking result you can be proud to show off.
Porcelain dental crowns offer numerous benefits. Designed to repair and reinforce a tooth’s structural integrity, a dental crown (sometimes called a cap) can be used if a tooth is worn down, fractured, misshapen, or decayed. When used with dental implants, the crown is placed atop the post in the final step of the procedure. Each dental crown is tailored to provide an exceptional fit and appearance and to last as long as possible.
The porcelain dental crown procedure is typically completed over the course of two appointments. As part of the process, we employ some of the most advanced dental technology available to optimize the outcome. Our doctors will prepare your teeth, take 3D images of your oral structures, and create a model of your teeth. This information will be sent to a lab where skilled technicians will produce a high-quality crown that matches the color of your existing teeth. While the permanent crown is being fabricated, you will be fitted with a temporary crown for your comfort and convenience. Dr. Coleman or Dr. John will then custom-fit and bond the permanent crown to your teeth. This approach helps to ensure the result will be as durable, aesthetically appealing, and indistinguishable from your natural teeth as possible.
