Porcelain Crowns Q & A

What is a crown?

A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers an entire decayed or damaged tooth. A crown is cemented into place just above the gumline and restores the shape, size, strength, and color of the tooth it’s covering. 

Crowns can hold together a cracked tooth or keep a weak tooth from breaking. They can also cover a misshapen or severely discolored tooth. Crowns are made of porcelain, resin, or ceramic. 

What can I expect during crown placement?

The process for placement of a crown might take a few visits to Core Smiles. During your initial evaluation, your dental expert takes a digital X-ray of your teeth and then begins preparing your damaged tooth for your crown. 

An impression is then made and sent to our private lab to be used to create your permanent crown, and your dentist places a temporary crown over your prepared tooth. 

When your new crown is ready, your dentist has you come back to the office for permanent placement. 

What are the benefits of porcelain crowns?

Porcelain crowns are ideal for restoring front teeth because they look very natural. Porcelain crowns can last a lifetime if properly maintained.

What is the difference between a porcelain crown and veneer?

Porcelain veneers are used to cover the front of your teeth, hiding chipped, misshapen, or severely discolored teeth. Porcelain crowns cover the entire tooth. This is necessary when the tooth structure is compromised due to a crack, damage, or severe erosion. By surrounding the entire tooth, a porcelain crown can provide strength and support. 

If your smile reveals a front tooth that is damaged, eroded, or otherwise compromised, you should consider getting the most beautiful crown a tooth can get: porcelain. To learn more, book an appointment with Core Smiles online or over the phone today.
