If you have a tooth that is badly worn down or broken, it is possible to save it. Teeth that might otherwise be lost can be beautifully restored with porcelain crowns from Dr. Brady Sherly.
What Are Porcelain Crowns?
A porcelain crown, sometimes referred to as a "cap," is molded in the shape of your natural tooth. It is made to protect a damaged tooth by covering the entire exterior of it, from the top to the gums. It is bonded to your natural tooth and it looks natural.
Types of Porcelain Crowns
ALL PORCELAIN CROWNS
These crowns are made completely of porcelain. They have a beautiful, life-like appearance that matches the color and translucency of natural teeth. The crown will feel and look natural. People won’t be able to tell that you had a tooth restored. The crown will have the same size and shape of your natural tooth, and it will look as good as, if not better than, the natural tooth when it was healthy.
Although crowns that are all porcelain provide the most beautiful restoration, they are also the most expensive. If you need a more affordable option, consider porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
A metal foundation is used for these crowns, so they are stronger than crowns made of all porcelain. The metal framework prevents them from having the same translucency as crowns made completely from porcelain, but they still have a natural appearance.
Fused-to-metal crowns are the less expensive than those made of all porcelain, so if you want a natural-looking restoration that fits your budget, you might consider them.
What to Expect
Whether you prefer a crown that is all porcelain or one that is fused to metal, your tooth will be shaved down to allow the crown to completely cover it. Lab time is required to make the crown. You will be able to wear a temporary crown while you wait for the permanent one.
After you receive the crown, you care for it just as you would a natural tooth, with regular flossing and brushing with non-abrasive toothpaste.
