Dental crowns are an integral part of restorative dentistry. There are many different types of crowns available, including porcelain and even gold. However, full porcelain is perhaps the most popular crown material and rightfully so too. Dental crowns often become a necessity for seniors. A study found that around 40% of adults aged 55 and above had at least one dental crown. That comes as no surprise as dental crowns help restore and rebuild a tooth that is either broken or whose structural integrity weakens because of decay or, in some cases, as a part of aging. At Reich Dental Center, we specialize in restorative dentistry and can provide full porcelain crowns to restore and repair damaged teeth.
Why Choose Porcelain Crowns
Dentists prefer porcelain crowns for Restorative Dentistry or Cosmetic Dentistry for several reasons.
Where a full porcelain crown works well-enough, your dentist may recommend you opt for a combination of enhanced performance and functionality. Porcelain crowns fused with metal are very common as they enhance the crown's strength and durability without taking away from the aesthetic appeal of a porcelain crown. You can also get Procera crowns that are porcelain coated with a milled ceramic filling inside. They work wonderfully well with a simple bridge cement and are known for their superior strength.
Process of Getting a Porcelain Crown
Your dentist can better on the type of crown you should get. The installation and preparation process is very straightforward. The dentist will clean and prepare your teeth to make an impression. They will then use the impression to design and shape the porcelain crown. Because the crown preparation takes a few days or so, they will give you a temporary crown to protect the damaged structure and prevent further damage in the meantime. Once the construction of the crown is complete, they will fit it over the tooth or teeth. To do so, the dentist will use an etching acid to roughen up or agitate the tooth's surface. They will then place the crown over it, which will latch on to the rough surface in a strong grip. The dentist will finish off the process with dental cement to seal the crown in place. Visit Reich Dental Center for a consultation or a crown fitting. It is a long-lasting restorative treatment that can protect your teeth from further damage.
