When you need more than a filling or bonding procedure to repair a tooth, then your Garland, TX, dentist may suggest creating and placing a custom dental crown. When we use all-porcelain, this ensures the finished product looks natural and blend with your smile, while also providing a durable and long-lasting restoration!
When Your Smile Needs A Crown
Since they cover the entire visible portion of each tooth, we often prescribe them for more serious oral health concerns, or to address major esthetic issues too. For example, placement could help address malformed or misshapen teeth, and instantly correct issues with permanent discoloration too. If you have decay or infection, we could repair the tooth or complete a root canal procedure, then we could place one. We also repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth, and provide length for the ones worn down due to teeth grinding. If you have lost one or more teeth, a crown could help secure a dental bridge or even restore a single tooth dental implant.
The Value of All-Porcelain
There are a number of different materials available to repair a tooth, but when possible, we like to opt for all-porcelain. The material is every durable, able to absorb daily bite forces and last for many years to come. In addition, the material contains stain-resistant properties and is translucent like natural tooth enamel. Finally, our team can color-match the porcelain to ensure it blends with your smile and matches surrounding teeth. After all, we want you to smile with confidence following your repair, and that is possible with porcelain. In fact, we often use this in esthetic treatments, such as porcelain veneers!
Placement and Maintenance
To start the process, we remove structure from your tooth and take detailed images and measurements using digital technology. Next, we design and fabricate the finished product in a dental lab. After about wo weeks, you will return to the office so we can place the finished crown. We will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments, and then place it with a powerful bonding agent. Your smile then looks natural, and you have a repair that can absorb daily bite forces and pressures with ease, providing a durable chewing surface.
