Porcelain Crowns for a Complete and Restored Stunning Smile
Damage, wear, or decay significantly affects the structure of your tooth. As a result, it weakens your tooth and makes it more vulnerable to infection or further injury. If you have a weakened tooth, Dr. Christopher Naranjo and his team at Greenbelt Dental Health can improve its appearance and strength using natural-looking dental crowns. Once we rebuild your tooth with a porcelain crown, no one can differentiate your restored tooth from the rest!
Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped dental caps placed on teeth to improve the color, shape, health, and size. Unlike dental veneers, dental crowns encase the entire tooth to give it the much-needed strength. The dental crown might be small but has numerous uses in dentistry. Dr. Naranjo may recommend a dental crown to:
- Strengthen a worn-down, chipped, or cracked tooth
- Cosmetically improve a stained, rotated, or misshapen tooth
- Repair tooth damage that is too large for a dental filling or inlay/onlay
- Complete a dental implant treatment
- Anchor a dental bridge in place
Our porcelain crowns repair your teeth while making them blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Your crown doesn’t stand out when laughing or speaking. However, should you opt for a gold crown for the back teeth, we can fabricate it with high-quality gold content.
What to Expect During Dental Crown Treatment
Typical dental crown treatment needs at least two appointments. The first appointment involves examining your tooth to determine its eligibility for a crown. If a crown can restore your tooth, we prepare it by filing down your enamel to create room for a crown. We take accurate photos to make sure we get a natural shade to help brighten your smile. Then, we take your bite impressions and develop models to be used to engineer your crown. Since the fabrication may take a couple of days, we protect your smile with a temporary crown.
On the second visit, we remove your temporary crown and try your new crown. Where necessary, we make minor adjustments for a better fit and look. Finally, we clean your teeth and install your permanent crown using dental cement.
