What are the benefits of porcelain tooth crowns?
Porcelain crowns are a natural, strong, and durable tooth replacement option for patients who have suffered serious damage to the visible portion of their teeth.
Who is a candidate for porcelain tooth crowns?
Tooth crowns are ideal for patients who have suffered some tooth loss, or who require extensive restructuring of individual teeth.
Are tooth crowns strong enough to withstand daily use?
Yes. Porcelain crowns are manufactured from a specially formulated dental ceramic material that is even stronger and more durable than your natural teeth.
How long will the procedure take?
Your porcelain tooth crown procedure will be completed over the course of two office visits. During your first visit, your tooth will be fully prepared. This may include removal of decayed material and surface preparation to ensure a strong, permanent bond for your new porcelain crown. We will then take a custom mold of your tooth that we will use to create your tooth crown.
During your second visit, we will use a special permanent bonding cement to affix your new crown.
How long will my porcelain crowns last?
Properly cared for and maintained, your new porcelain tooth crown can last in excess of ten years, although this may vary from patient to patient as well as depending on your regular dental visits.
