With porcelain, we create crowns that not only repair teeth and address oral health issues, but also offer a lifelike appearance. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist will explain how we craft a custom restoration, and how placing one could help return your smile to a more attractive and healthy state once more.
When You Need Repair
The dental crown itself is a sturdy restoration designed to address the entire visible portion of each tooth, basically everything above the gum line. We’ve used them to offer repair for cracked, chipped, or severely broken teeth. We’ve even reshaped malformed teeth, and address esthetic issues with the surface and color too. If you wear a tooth down due to bruxism, we can lengthen the tooth, and also provide repair for severe cavities or an infected tooth. If you have lost one or more of your natural teeth, then a crown could aid in the replacement process. For example, one to two could be used to secure a dental bridge into place, while one could address the visible portion of an individual dental implant.
Creating a Restoration with Porcelain
Each one is custom-made for your smile, which provides not only an attractive appearance, but a comfortable fit and a balanced bite. We begin by removing a thin layer of structure before taking a series of images and impressions with digital technology. With this information, the restoration will be designed in a dental lab setting and crafted. The porcelain we use is translucent like outer enamel, and also contains stain resistant properties. We shade the material to ensure your restoration blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, so you never hesitate to laugh or smile among friends!
Placement and Maintenance
When we complete your restoration, you will return to the office. We will check the fit to make sure we don’t need to make any final adjustments. Finally, we attach the crown with a powerful bonding agent, securing it in place for decades with proper care and attention. Remember, the same care that keeps your crown strong also protects natural teeth. Be sure you brush and floss as the dentist recommends, and make time for a checkup and cleaning every six months. We also suggest a healthier diet with fewer sugary foods and drinks too.
