High Dental offers porcelain crowns in order to restore smiles. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap which protects the underlying tooth. Dental crowns are generally provided in these situations:
- To keep a weakened tooth from completely breaking
- To restore a broken or worn tooth
- As part of a dental bridge
- To mask cosmetic defects in teeth
- To restore a dental implant
There are many materials that may be used for a dental crown. These materials include resin, porcelain, stainless steel and gold. In recent years, all ceramic porcelain crowns have become much stronger and deliver excellent aesthetic results. Porcelain crowns are the most commonly requested crowns at High Dental. Your dentist will discuss the virtues of each material with you to provide the best crown for your needs.
What Is the Procedure for Porcelain Crowns?
The process begins with an examination performed by your dentist. X-rays will usually be taken in order to determine if the foundation of the tooth is sound before you invest in your crown. If appropriate, the crown will be trimmed so that space is created for the crown. An accurate impression is taken and sent to our dental technician. Your crown will be handmade in the laboratory.
While the permanent crown is made, your dentist will make you a temporary crown at chairside.
The permanent crown should be available from your dentist in two weeks. For urgent cases, we can usually expedite this process for you. At the fit stage, the crown is permanently cemented and your bite checked for comfort.
If you require dental crowns, we can help. To schedule an appointment for a consultation, contact High Dental today.
