What are porcelain crowns?

Porcelain crowns or tooth colored crowns are the most popular type of crown because they look like your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years. However they may eventually need to be replaced like most dental restorations. Porcelain crowns are made to match the color, size, and shape of your teeth giving you a natural and beautiful smile.

Reasons for crowns:

• Decayed teeth
• Large teeth
• Broken or fractured teeth
• Fractured fillings or restorations
• Cosmetic improvement of teeth
• Tooth has been treated with a root canal

What are the steps of getting a crown?

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. Your first appointment will include taking several highly accurate moulds (or impressions) that will be used to create your custom crown. A mould will also be used to create a temporary crown which will stay on your tooth for approximately two weeks until your new crown is fabricated by a dental laboratory.

While the tooth is numb, the dentist will prepare the tooth by removing any decay and shaping the surface to properly fit the crown. Once these details are accomplished, your temporary crown will be placed with temporary cement and your bite will be checked to ensure you are biting properly.

At your second appointment your temporary crown will be removed, the tooth will be cleaned, and your new crown will be carefully placed to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.
