Dental crowns are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. In the past, dental crowns required a metal substructure, but with today’s technology, all-porcelain crowns are now readily available!
All-porcelain crowns are usually more attractive than other types of crowns, and they typically require less invasive procedures. Crowns are great because they provide support to damaged teeth and minimize physical discomfort. Ultimately, crowns will improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your surrounding teeth more resistant to injury.
Our dentists will have to take an impression of your mouth and send it to the laboratory for traditional all-porcelain crowns. With CEREC crowns this won’t be necessary. Computer-aided design and a unique milling machine will create a digital impression to fit the crown in the exact position where your tooth was. These crowns are tooth-colored, metal-free, anti-abrasive, and resistant to plaque.
Our office will also be able to help you out if you have an older PFM crown. These crowns are known as “porcelain-fused-to-metal” crowns and are somewhat outdated. If you want to see if you are a good fit for an updated, higher quality all-porcelain crown, give our office a call and schedule an appointment!
