Everything You Need to Know About Porcelain Crowns

An attractive smile can be enhanced by using the very latest and most advanced porcelain crowns to entirely cover up teeth that are too badly damaged to be repaired with a filling. Crowns will protect teeth, while restoring, size, strength and structure. They are also used to support dental bridges or to finish dental implant treatment.

Although crowns can be made from semi-precious metals, we much prefer to use porcelain. This is because the very latest ceramic materials can closely mimic the translucency and liveliness found in a natural tooth. The color and appearance of your porcelain crown can be closely matched to the shade and shape of your natural teeth so it will blend in beautifully. Our porcelain crowns are very hardwearing, but like all restorations they will eventually require replacing after several years’ of use.

  • Reasons Why You May Require a Crown Include:
  • Covering up fractured or broken teeth
  • Covering up decayed teeth
  • Restoring strength to teeth with very large fillings
  • Restoring teeth after root canal therapy
  • To cosmetically enhance the appearance of a tooth
  • What is the Procedure for a Crown?

You will need to visit Simply Smiles at least twice. During your first appointment Dr. Gekht will prepare your tooth using local anesthetic, before taking an impression to send to the laboratory. We will create a temporary crown to protect your tooth and this will remain in place while your new crown is being custom-made at our dental laboratory.

At your second visit, we will remove your temporary crown and will clean your tooth so your brand new crown can be fitted and adjusted if required. You will get to see your new crown to approve its appearance before it is permanently cemented in place. Afterwards we will carefully check your bite to make sure it is comfortable for you to eat.

Replacing Missing Teeth

If you are missing teeth, we may suggest crowning the teeth adjacent to the gap in order to make a bridge. To do this, the teeth either side of the gap must be prepared for crowns and these crowns are used to anchor the bridge in place. The crowns are attached to the replacement tooth, or teeth, to form a strong and stable unit.

Looking After Your New Crown

Looking after your new crown is very simple as it can be brushed and flossed as if it were a natural tooth. Regular dental check-ups and professional cleanings will help maintain your crown, prolonging its life. If cared for correctly, a crown could last for up to 15 years.
