Porcelain Crown

If one or more of your teeth have been affected by moderate cases of decay, chipping, or cracks, it is possible to restore them with the use of dental crowns. Crowns can strengthen the structure of a tooth while also helping to restore the natural appearance of a smile.

Crowns are custom-made to blend in with the patient's tooth color and shape. Here at Hidden Springs Family Dentistry, our team of professionals will be happy to help you regain your smile and will be glad to answer all of your questions about the procedure.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are some of the most effective restorative treatments and have a vast range of benefits for patients. On the aesthetic side, porcelain crowns can help if your teeth are discolored enough to the point of not being candidates for teeth whitening. They can completely replace a broken tooth and do so while looking and feeling as natural as a normal one.

Crowns may also help restore a smile and ensure that patients can perform biting and chewing actions comfortably. Crowns may provide extra support for individuals who require more strength for their existing teeth as well. Overall, porcelain crowns are a fantastic choice when your teeth are severely decayed and need to be repaired.

How to Take Care of Your Porcelain Crowns

Dental crowns are not meant to last forever, but when patients spend time and look for good hygiene habits every day, they tend to last for several years. There are certain important recommendations that might help you preserve the beauty and function of your dental crown.

First and foremost, brush your teeth twice a day; try to use non-abrasive toothpaste, and be sure to floss once a day to remove any left over food particles. You should take into consideration that, to avoid dislodging your dental crown, you may need to modify your flossing method and be gentler.

You should also visit our office at least twice a year so that we can keep an eye on the state of your crown, as well as the rest of your oral and dental health.

Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Crowns?

Dental crowns can improve the appearance of your smile and provide strength and protection for teeth that are broken or weakened. If your teeth are misshapen or disproportionally short, your dentist may advise you to have a dental crown. They are also recommended when teeth are significantly fractured or chipped, or when patients present difficulties in chewing food.

Dental crowns are sometimes used to complete a dental bridge. In other situations, crowns are used to replace lost teeth and are connected to dental implants.

Patients who may have sustained damage to their teeth can benefit from dental crowns.
