Are you tired of hiding broken or damaged teeth? Porcelain crowns can be used to enhance or replace your broken, stained, or missing teeth to give you that flawless, cosmetic smile you have always dreamed of.
A crown is placed over a broken or damaged tooth, to restore the tooth to its natural shape and contour. In the past, crowns were often made of unnatural looking materials such as gold. Porcelain crowns combine the strength of metal crowns with the aesthetics of natural looking teeth.
Our North Palm Beach porcelain crowns are typically made in two visits. At the first visit, your dentist will carefully remove any decay or old filling material from your tooth and precisely shape the tooth to the correct contours. A digital scan of your tooth will be taken and will be electronically sent to a dental lab. The lab will fabricate the crown so that it fits precisely over your existing natural tooth. At the second visit, your dentist will permanently cement the crown over your existing tooth.
After the first visit, there may be some mild discomfort for several days, however, this typically resolves and your tooth should go back to feeling normal. A temporary crown is then placed at the first visit. Patients should be mindful not to eat anything very hard or sticky while the temporary crown is placed. Once the permanent porcelain crown is cemented, normal eating can resume.
With our recent inclusion of porcelain crowns North Palm Beach's Orange Dental Partners now offers an even wider array of dental treatments.
