Porcelain Dental Crowns
Bloomfield Hills, MI
Having a problem tooth does not necessarily mean the end of a lovely smile. With porcelain dental crowns, it’s possible to maintain a regular appearance and restore the proper dental structure.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap usually placed over an extensively damaged tooth (by decay or trauma). It helps in the following ways;
- Supporting a weak tooth or holding together parts of a cracked tooth
- Restoring a severely worn out or broken tooth
- Filling and covering where there isn’t a lot of teeth left
- Holding a dental bridge
- Covering discolored teeth
- Covering a dental implant
- Making cosmetic modifications

Why Do We Use Porcelain Crowns?
Like natural teeth, porcelain is semi-translucent, and it reflects light. The crowns, therefore, look just like your natural teeth. We can also customize them to your preference. Porcelain can be precisely harmonized to your adjacent teeth for a unified appearance.
After restoration to natural size and shape, the crown fits in the structure comfortably and functions just like a natural tooth. In fact, many patients can’t tell if they are wearing porcelain crowns after restoration.
Dental porcelain is very tough, and it can last for more than 15 years. It is resilient to discoloration or staining, unlike other materials. Porcelain use in dental procedures is also effective and safe. It doesn’t have any long-term side effects apart from rare allergy cases.
Creation of porcelain crowns takes a lot of time. Once we fix the crowns, you have to maintain them for them to last longer. Luckily, it’s effortless to maintain porcelain dental crowns. Just like your natural teeth, observe regular flossing and routine brushing using a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste.
Some patients complain of high sensitivity to cold or hot temperatures after porcelain crowns are placed. In this case, it’s recommended to consult with your dentist.
The cost of porcelain dental crowns varies depending on the overall amount of dental work required. Some dental insurance companies cover porcelain crowns while others don’t.
Either way, let our team at Dr. Scott J. Owens DDS help you achieve the perfect smile!
