What Are Porcelain Dental Crowns?
Porcelain crowns replace the outer portion of the tooth, both creating a natural appearance and restoring the function of broken or decayed teeth. Crowns are like caps that cover the tooth’s surface and protect the structure from further damage from decay.
How Are Porcelain Dental Crowns Applied?
Your dentist will apply your porcelain dental crowns in two appointments. The first appointment is for the fitting, where a mold of the teeth will be created. Your dentist will then fit you with a temporary crown until your permanent one has been completed. Crowns are then applied using a light-sensitive resin applied between the original tooth and the crown. The resin is then hardened with a special curing light.
Why Choose Porcelain Dental Crowns?
Porcelain crowns are often prescribed for teeth that been destroyed by tooth decay or severe enamel erosion, or when a tooth or teeth have broken because of a traumatic injury. People who grind or clench their teeth often choose porcelain dental crowns to restore the integrity of their teeth.
The benefit of porcelain crowns is they fully restore the tooth’s function and are designed to match the existing teeth. People also choose porcelain crowns for cosmetic reasons, to restore teeth to their original luster, or repair some other aesthetic flaw.
Porcelain is also the ideal substance for crowns because of its strength and stain resistance. Porcelain crowns require the same daily care as a patient’s original teeth.
