Porcelain Crowns – Frisco, CO
Enjoy a Natural-Looking Restoration
What is a Porcelain Crown?
If you're self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown covers the entire portion of a tooth that’s visible above the gum line. It can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage.
Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your smile from further complications and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment. Since porcelain is used, the crown can be designed to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth, so no one will know it isn’t real.
Do I Need a Crown?
Crowns are widely used in dentistry; however, they are only recommended when there aren’t any other viable solutions to treat the tooth, such as when needing to fix:
Typically, we can design, fit, and place your crown in just a couple of short appointments. After your tooth is prepared, we will take an impression of your mouth, which is used to craft your crown to meet your exact needs. This can take the dental lab a couple of weeks, so you’ll need a temporary one while you wait. After your permanent crown is ready, you’ll return to our office to have it bonded in place.
Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional hygiene treatments and a preventive exam, too.
What are the Benefits of a Porcelain Crown?
Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting. They provide several benefits, making them popular with dentists as well as patients, such as:
- Matches your teeth to look natural.
- Durable to function like a real tooth.
- Biocompatible for a metal-free solution.
- Won’t cause a grey line near the gum.
- Precise and accurate fit.
- Long-term results.
