Porcelain Crowns Offer Lifelike Dental Repair

When you have a cracked, chipped, or broken tooth, this could lead to decay or infection without treatment. However, we can offer repair that looks natural and blends with your smile. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about how we help smiles with our custom and natural-looking porcelain crowns.

When You Need a Dental Restoration  

When should you see our team about treatment with a dental crown? We may recommend one when you have a chipped, broken, or fractured tooth. Placement could address misshapen teeth and treat tooth decay too severe for a filling to handle. If you have an infected tooth, this could be the final step in the root canal process. We’ve place crowns to help improve bite balance and chewing function too. Even if you have missing teeth, porcelain crowns can support a dental bridge or even restore a single tooth dental implant too.

The Benefits of Porcelain

Metal restorations are effective, but they tend to change shape with time and may not be the best choice for all patients. But porcelain is safe for kids and adults alike, and is biocompatible, bonding with your tooth structure, and lasting for years to come. The material is durable and can handle daily bite forces and pressures too. In addition, the material is translucent like tooth enamel and can be shaded to blend with your smile. Once in place, these can offer a lifelike appearance and help you feel confident in your smile.

Creating and Placing Your Restoration

How do we craft and place custom and lifelike crowns? To begin, we will numb the tooth being treated so our team can gently remove a small amount of structure to make room for your restoration. We then take digital images of the prepared tooth from several angles, and use it to make a 3D computer impression, one far more accurate than physical impressions. In a dental lab, we will design and craft your crown from porcelain. When ready, we will check the fit and make final adjustments before we place your new restoration with a powerful bonding agent, the same we use to secure bridges. You now have a fully restored tooth, and can smile without hesitation again.

If you have any questions about how our team will design and craft a natural-looking restoration from durable porcelain, or if you have a tooth that needs treatment or repair, then contact our team today to get started. We want to help you maintain your best possible smile!
