Porcelain Crowns – Restoring A Natural Look for Your Smile
For a natural appearance as well as durability, porcelain crowns are a very popular option to restore a damaged tooth.
Your dentist may recommend a porcelain crown if your tooth is damaged, has a large filling that has weakened or if you are getting an implant. A porcelain crown with a metal base is often the choice because it will look natural and be durable enough to last many years.
In choosing a porcelain fused to metal crown, you may want to consider two factors. In comparison to other types of crowns, a porcelain crown with a metal base requires more of your natural tooth to be removed, so you may spend a little longer in the dentist chair. In addition, as your gums recede over time, this type of crown may show a small rim of the metal at the gum line.
For this treatment, your dentist will prepare the tooth and take impressions to use to make your new crown. Your porcelain crown will be skillfully created to match your original tooth as closely as possible. To protect the area while your crown in being made, you will have a temporary crown. On your second office visit, your dentist will carefully fit your new crown and permanently bond it into place.
