A confident smile is a reflection of your inner radiance and self-assuredness. When dental imperfections affect the appearance and function of your teeth, porcelain crowns emerge as a versatile and aesthetic solution.
Porcelain crowns are custom-made restorations designed to cover a damaged or discolored tooth. They blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a durable and natural-looking solution for various dental concerns.
At Deep Ellum Advanced Dentistry, we offer porcelain crowns as a versatile solution for addressing various dental concerns while restoring the beauty and functionality of your smile.
Advantages of Porcelain Crowns
One of the most significant benefits of porcelain crowns in Dallas is their natural-looking appearance. The shade of the crown can be matched to your surrounding teeth so that it blends in perfectly with your smile. This makes them ideal for front teeth restorations.
Porcelain crowns are also very durable. They can last for many years if they are cared for properly. With proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist, you can expect your porcelain crowns to last for 10 to 15 years or longer.
Ease of Care
Another benefit of porcelain crowns is that they are easy to care for. You can brush and floss them just as you would with your natural teeth. There is no need to take special precautions when caring for porcelain crowns.
A damaged or decayed tooth can affect your ability to chew and speak comfortably. Porcelain crowns restore the tooth's function, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and say confidently.
Preservation of Tooth Structure
Unlike some dental procedures that require extensive tooth reduction, porcelain crowns often require minimal enamel removal. This helps preserve the natural structure of your tooth.
The Porcelain Crown Process
Your journey begins with a consultation with our dentist in in Dallas, TX. Dr. Wing will assess your oral health and discuss your goals to determine if porcelain crowns are the right solution for you. If a porcelain crown is needed, the tooth receiving the crown will be gently prepared by removing a small amount of enamel. This creates space for the crown and ensures a snug fit. Precise impressions of your teeth are then taken and sent to a dental laboratory. These impressions serve as a guide for crafting your custom porcelain crown.
While your permanent crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown is placed to protect the prepared tooth and maintain its appearance. During that time, skilled dental technicians craft your porcelain crown using the impressions as a model. They meticulously shape and shade the porcelain to achieve a natural and aesthetic result. Once your permanent crown is ready, it is carefully placed and bonded to the prepared tooth after the temporary crown is removed. The dentist ensures a precise fit and checks your bite for comfort.
By restoring the aesthetics and functionality of your teeth, porcelain crowns can significantly boost your self-esteem. If you're seeking a way to restore and elevate your smile, contact Deep Ellum Advanced Dentistry at 3112 Main St., Dallas, TX 75226, or call (214) 466-6610.
