The purpose of a porcelain crown by our Palm Beach Gardens dentist is to restore a single damaged tooth back to quality strength and function. Porcelain crowns may be used to cover a tooth with severe decay, a crack or break, as the finishing touch to root canal therapy, or it may become your new tooth after the placement of a dental implant.
Crowns have been around for ages. However, today’s porcelain crowns offer outstanding results when it comes to providing strength and the most tooth-like appearance. Our dental crowns are designed by our dental lab, using 100% ceramic porcelain, which mimics the natural translucency and characteristics of natural teeth. After a porcelain crown has been carefully placed, your restoration will look as though dental work was never involved.
Porcelain crowns are the most advanced and aesthetically pleasing crowns available because they look and function just like your natural teeth. Metal crowns are created out of gold or other metal amalgam, and while they restore strength and function, they can be unsightly. Porcelain fused to metal crowns can also be used, but over time, the metal portion of the crown can be seen.
Placing a porcelain crown begins by prepping the tooth for its restoration. This may involve reshaping the tooth and repairing any defects. Next, an impression of the tooth is made and sent off to the dental lab, which artistically creates the crown. Once the new porcelain crown is ready, it is carefully and permanently bonded to the tooth.
