The Benefits Of Our Porcelain Crowns

When a tooth is compromised, either via injury or as a result of decay or infection, treatment is necessary to protect your smile’s stability. But we also know the overall appearance of your smile is very important too! Which is why our team offers custom dental crowns crafted from durable and lifelike porcelain. In today’s blog, your Brookfield, WI, family dentist talks about the benefits of placing a porcelain dental crown. With a restoration, we can return your smile to optimal health, function, and beauty.

Does Your Tooth Need Restoration?

A dental crown covers the vulnerable part of your tooth, everything above the gum line. Which means we can use them to address both cosmetic and restorative oral health issues. For example, we could prescribe one to treat tooth decay or to complete a root canal for an infected tooth. They also repair cracked, chipped, or broken teeth, and lengthen worn down structure too. Placement could help improve overall bite balance and even correct misshapen teeth too. If you have lost natural teeth, we’ve used crowns to secure dental bridges in place or to restore a single tooth dental implant.

Creating a Custom Restoration

The placement process starts with an initial exam, so we can take a look at the tooth that requires treatment. We then numb the tooth so we can gently remove structure to make room for your new crown. Our team then gathers detailed digital images and measurements, which we use in a lab setting to design and fabricate your custom restoration. We then check the fit, make any necessary adjustments, and finally attach your restoration with a powerful bonding agent. You now have a durable and lifelike option that can last years with proper care and attention!

The Strength and Beauty of Porcelain

We’re proud to offer dental restorations made with all-porcelain, a material that contains no metal and that is safe for all ages. The material is translucent like tooth enamel, and we can color-match it to blend with the rest of your smile seamlessly. Porcelain also handles daily bite forces and pressures with ease, so you can enjoy a durable chewing surface too. If you have discomfort in a tooth, or if one sustains damage or is misshapen, then please reach out to our team. We would love to help you enjoy a strong, healthy, and of course, attractive smile with our all-porcelain dental crowns. If you have any questions, give us a call today!
